Will Arnett lands a role in Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles

Apr. 2, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Add another name to the cast list for the Michael Bay produced live-action, CG hybrid NINJA TURTLES. Damn that's a mouthful.

Megan Fox landed the role of April O'Neil with four blonde dudes (Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fishel) lending their voices to the turtles. Now Will Arnett has been thrown into the mix in a secret leading role. They say he won't be playing Casey Jones, but the roles for Shredder and Splinter are still up for grabs. My guess is that he will be working at the newstation alongside April. Maybe he'll play a slimey boss that hits on her all the time or something.

Could he be Professor Jordon Perry? Just kidding! Oooo...Tokka or Rahzar? Bebop or Rocksteady? Now you know I'm just playing around here. Even though Splinter and Shredder are up for grabs, I just don't see him voicing or physically acting in either role.

The new nitty, gritty, dark and apparently "awesome" NINJA TURTLES story was scripted by Josh Appelbaum and Andr Nemec (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL). Paramount will unleash "Turtle Power" upon us on June 6, 2014.

They should use CGI to remove Megan Fox, and insert pretty much anyone else.

If they brought in Baxter Stockman, I might actually be interested in this.

The last time Megan Fox and Arnett were in a movie together, we got Jonah Hex. I'm expecting this Ninja Turtles to be just as good as that one.

I know everyone (myself included) hates any news regarding this movie, but Will Arnett is basically an automatic green box from me.

How do you mean the role for Splinter is "up for grabs"? They going to put a live actor in a rat suit?

Well, no. But they need someone to voice the character. And they're doing the whole mocap route like Avatar for the Turtles and Splinter. So yea they will need an actor to play the role.

He'll be April's cameraman Vernon

Which actually isn't a bad choice, BUT it's irrelevant because EVERY OTHER DECISION HAS BEEN MORONIC.

I've made a huge mistake.

This is beneath Arnett's talent.

Will Arnett's presence is an automatic plus for me. He could be anybody in this flick, since he has serious range as a voice actor: Ratatouille (Horst, the German sous-chef), Monsters vs. Aliens (Missing Link) and Despicable Me (Mr. Perks, the evil banker).

He told Michael Bay he was a chicken for not hiring him. Bay changed his mind after Arnett's chicken dance.

Vernon?

Wasn't there a very arrogant news man who worked with April in the 80's cartoon named Vernon?? That part would be perfect for Arnett. Yes?

Will Arnett as a Ninja Turtle would go a little something like this......

"Yeah, like the guy the $6,000 turtle suit is going to give up a slice of his own pizza for you. COME ON!"

Well the hiring of Arnett pretty much guarantees this movie not only will be bad but won't make any money either, this guy's the kiss of death.

Who the fuck is Vernon? For the life of me I cannot remember this character from the cartoon or from the movies. Regardless, this is the best casting they've done for what is looking like a horrible movie.
