Meet Brad Garrett, the new star lending his vocal chords to Krang, the grotesque supervillain appearing in next month’s action sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
Word of Garrett’s last-minute addition arrives by way of The LA Times, revealing that Paramount snapped up the actor in place of Fred Armisen, who was originally announced as Krang some months ago. Alas, Armisen’s schedule didn’t align with Out of the Shadows‘ lengthy post-production process, and with only two weeks between now and release, Garrett will be the one menacing our half-shell heroes when Out of the Shadows drops on June 3.
Rounding up Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael this time around is series newcomer Dave Green (Earth to Echo) who picks up the mantle from Jonathan Liebesman. Surfacing from the sewers and onto the streets of NYC, the TMNT will be going toe-to-toe with with Krang’s bumbling henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady – voiced by Gary Anthony Williams and WWE fan-favorite Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly, respectively – with the remainder of the cast being rounded out by Megan Fox, Tyler Perry, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Stephen Amell and Laura Linney.
Look for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to scramble Out of the Shadows and onto the big screen on June 3.
Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil, Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones. After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
