Jonathan Liebesman’s Ninja Turtles has added another big name to its growing ensemble, with Will Arnett signing on to play an unspecified role.
THR reports that Arnett will join Megan Fox in the Michael Bay-produced reboot, although there are no details as to who he’ll be playing.
Given Arnett’s trademark honeyed-gravel voice, he might be a good pick for either Splinter or Shredder, two characters for whom a talented vocal performer is of paramount importance. We shall have to wait and see…
Arnett is one of the more recognisable names in a production that recently cast newcomers Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher as Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo. Alan Ritchson will play fourth turtle Raphael.
Directed by Liebesman, Ninja Turtles will open in the US on 6 July 2014. Cowabunga…
