Movie News: Johnny Knoxville & Tony Shalhoub to Voice Key TMNT Characters

PrintE-mail Written by Andrew Pollard

The upcoming TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES reboot has added JACKASS’ Johnny Knoxville and MONK’s Tony Shalhoub. Knoxville will be voicing the Turtles’ katana-wielding leader, Leonardo, whilst Shalhoub will lend his vocals to the Turtles’ sensei, Master Splinter. We guess they've decided to make Leonardo a smarmy dick.

It was initially believed that the actors providing the motion capture work for the heroes in a half-shell would also be providing the voices for the characters, but that’s not the case with Leo and Splinter. In terms of the 'performance’ aspect, Pete Ploszek is Leonardo and Danny Woodburn is Splinter.

The rest of the cast is made up of Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, and William Fichtner as the villainous Shredder.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay (shudder), TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is currently set for an 8th August release.
