Arrested Development star Will Arnett joins Megan Fox, who will play April O'Neil, along with Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher, who will play the heroes in a half shell in Michael Bay's much maligned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. This is Arnett's second recent foray into the world of superheroes. He will also be voicing the character of Batman in The Lego Movie.
While Arnett's role in the film is being kept under wraps, my money is on Shredder. He certainly has the voice for it. I suppose he could end up as Master Splinter, but does that seem like the type of role a guy wearing a $6500 suit would play? Come on!
So has Will Arnett made a huge mistake by joining the cast?
Only if you consider making a boatload of money a huge mistake.
