I am definitely in the group that has been rather skeptical about the Michael Bay-produced "Ninja Turtles". My suspicions hit around the time when word first got out that he was going to explore the turtles being of alien origin. News of the most recent casting does have me a bit intrigued, however. Well played, Bay and team.
Funny man Will Arnett is the latest edition to "Ninja Turtles". Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the film also stars Megan Fox as April O'Neill, and Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher as the turtles.
Three big roles have not been cast yet, including the turtle's master Splinter, their ally Casey Jones and their biggest enemy, Shredder. It has been reported that Arnett will not be playing Jones. This leaves either Shredder, Splinter or a more minor character. I personally hope it's the former because the key to making this film work would be to not take itself too seriously, and Arnett would be an amazing comedic relief in helping to achieve this.
