Will Arnett Cast in <i>Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles</i>

Let’s hope Will Arnett didn’t just make a huge mistake.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Arrested Development star has been cast in an unspecified role in the Michael Bay-produced revamp of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Though sources deny that Arnett will be playing street vigilante/Turtles’ ally Casey Jones, the role of the villainous Shredder is reportedly still up in the air as is the role of Splinter, the boys’ rat mentor.

Arnett will join a cast that includes Megan Fox as intrepid reporter April O’Neil, as well as newcomers Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher, who will portray the Ninja Turtles via motion capture.

The film will be directed by Battle Los Angeles’s Jonathan Liebesman from a script by Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol’s Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec.
