Finally fulfilling the prophecy he foretold in the first run of Arrested Development, Will Arnett has made a huge mistake by getting cast in Michael Bay's increasingly depressing Ninja Turtles reboot. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Arnett has been signed on in an undisclosed role in the movie, joining Megan Fox as April O'Neil in what will most assuredly be a film that is both respectful to the fans and the source material. He'll also be joined by Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, and Noel Fisher as the titular turtles who will make us wonder why we ever cared about martial arts reptiles in the first place.
Not much has been revealed about the role Arnett will play in the movie, aside from the fact that he has not been cast as sports-themed antihero, Casey Jones. Aside from Casey, both Splinter, the turtles' rodent mentor, and their aptly named villain, the Shredder, have yet to be assigned actors on this doomed venture. It's hard to imagine Arnett in either role, hanging around sewers or allowing so many blades near his $3,000 suit. On the other hand, perhaps there's more to this announcement and this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is just another in a long line of attempts to retool Arnett's NBC sitcom Up All Night, where he will now star as a landlord whose tenants are four wacky, pizza-loving, green dudes because whatever.
