Danny Woodburn Cast as Splinter in "Ninja Turtles"



With filming already underway in New York, we finally have a name attached to the role of Splinter in the upcoming "Ninja Turtles" film.

Deadline.com reports that Danny Woodburn, perhaps best-known for his recurring role on Seinfeld, has been cast as the Turtles ninja master.

At 4' tall, Woodburn's height provides some insight on the character design for Splinter. Although in the latest TMNT cartoon series on Nickelodeon Splinter is comparatively tall, in previous incarnations he has been consistently shorter than the Turtles.

If you have any casting or filming tips regarding the movie, please share them via e-mail! Anonymity will be respected and maintained.

Classic Turtles to Join Nick Turtles in Season 2




In an exclusive interview with USA Today, Nickelodeon Executive Producer Ciro Nieli has dropped some hints about what TMNT fans can expect with the remaining part of this season, as well as next season.

The big news coming from this interview is that next season there will be a one-hour special unites the Turtles voice actors from the original cartoon with their modern counterparts.
It'll be a story point, too, that brings classic and current Turtles together.

"We all have a nostalgia for these characters in all their incarnations, and any time we can serve it up, we take the chance," Nieli says. "The trick is finding a way to do it where it doesn't feel wedged in, where you don't even see it coming.
Townsend Coleman (Michaelangelo) hinted at the reunion earlier this week on Facebook when he changed his cover photo to a picture of the outside of Nickelodeon Studios in Burbank, CA.

The original TMNT voice actors are Coleman, Cam Clarke (Leonardo), Barry Gordon (Donatello), and Rob Paulsen (Raphael). Paulsen, of course, would be pulling double duty as he the current Donatello. The rest of the current cast is Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Jason Biggs (Leonardo), and Sean Astin (Raphael).

According to the interview, one other blast from the past fans can expect is the return of Mutagen Man from the original cartoon and toy line.

New episodes of Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles begin again this Friday, April 5, with Baxter's Gambit.
