Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub Join Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
04.08.14 by Ryan
The first trailer for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot was released last month, but it looks like there are going to be some changes made before the movie reaches theaters on August 8.
According to Deadline, Jackass star Johnny Knoxville and Monk's Tony Shalhoub have been added to the cast to provide the voices of Leonardo and Splinter, respectively. Both roles were originally played by other actors during shooting — Pete Ploszek played Leonardo and Danny Woodburn played Splinter — but the report states the original actors were "only guaranteed to physically perform the roles in costume." Neither character spoke in the trailer, indicating that Paramount Pictures was potentially considering replacing the voices.
produced by Michael Bay, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-stars Megan Fox as April O'Neil and William Fichtner as Shredder, both of whom speak in the trailer, so their voices seem to be safe from being replaced.
