Whoopi Goldberg joins the cast of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!! Pics from the set!!
Howdy do, everyone, it's Papa Vinyard here.
EGOT winner and legendary singing nun Whoopi Goldberg has joined Jonathan Liebesman's TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, as evidenced by set photos uncovered a couple of days ago. Yesterday, we got word from Comic Book Movie that the role she will be playing is that of Bernadette Thompson, editor at Channel 6 News and boss of April O'Neil (Megan Fox).
They are switching the gender (and hair color, from blonde to black) of the role (Burne to Bernadette), but I can imagine she'll still be the turtle-hating yin to April's shell-friendly yang. As evidenced by the pics below, she'll definitely have the look of someone maybe not worth fucking with, even to get the word out that these irradiated, 6-foot-tall, possibly alien biped turtles capable of multi-man takedowns with deadly weapons are NOT, in fact, an imminent threat.
The cast also includes Will Arnett, William Fichtner, a bunch of unknowns as the Turtles, and Danny Woodburn as Splinter. They haven't confirmed it yet, but it seems like a matter of time before they officially announce Fichtner as Shredder, especially given his upcoming heavily made-up baddie role in THE LONE RANGER.
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (or whatever they end up calling it) drops on June 6th, 2014.
