Michael Bay’s ‘Ninja Turtles’ Finds Its Master Splinter

hollywood-movie-newsThis evening, Deadline is reporting that another casting addition has been made for the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles reboot. The newest addition is Danny Woodburn, whom has been cast in the role of Master Splinter. Many will probably recognize Woodburn from his role on Seinfeld. I know, you are thinking he’s not a giant rat, how is this going to work? Well Woodburn will be doing some motion capture, similar to how Andy Serkis did with Gollum or Caeser in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Not to sure about the choice myself. Sure he’s a good actor, but does not fulfill the picture I see, when you say “Master Splinter,” a ninja named Hamato Yoshi transformed into a rat. Ah well. (Source: Deadline)
