Danny Woodburn Cast As Master Splinter In TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, Does This Mean Splinter Will Be A New Yorker Not Japanese?

I'm curious if this means that Splinter's Japanese origin will be changed to a gruff New Yorker. Yet another possible element of the mythology being systematically changed for zero reason.
