Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub will join the cast in vocal form, replacing the voices of Pete Ploszec and Danny Woodburn, because Michael Bay.
Michael Bay and the rest of the TMNT producers have listened to fan concerns about the upcoming film and... they don't plan to address a single one of them. But they are addressing a complaint you didn't know you had, which is that Pete Ploszec (relatively unknown) and Danny Woodburn (Seinfeld) totally suck.
What's that? You don't have a problem with either of those two actors? Well that's too bad, because Ploszec, who plays Leonardo in the movie, and Woodburn, who plays Splinter, are going to have their voices dubbed over by fucking Johnny Knoxville (Dukes of Hazard) and Tony Shalhoub (Monk). According to Deadline, the producers always considered this option open, telling Ploszec and Woodburn, reportedly, "Its not you. It's us," and assuring the actors that somewhere out there is a movie that's right for them.
Knoxville joins Megan Fox and horrific Turtle costume design on the long list of reasons the film will be an abomination. The addition of Knoxville is somewhat fitting for the movie, since the Jackass star is currently ranked #8 on the "biggest douchebags currently alive" chart, moving up one spot after the recent death of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps. Michael Bay himself is currently ranked #2 on the list for his previous cinematic efforts, but he may have a shot at taking the top spot once TMNT finally hits theaters.
Stay tuned to The Outhouse for more unnecessarily harsh criticism of a movie we haven't seen yet.
