JACKASS Johnny Knoxville Will Voice Leo In TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
Following a mixed reaction to the recent trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Paramount has hired Jackass (the films are setup at Paramount) founding member Johnny Knoxville to be the new voice of Leonardo, according to Deadline. While Tony Shalhoub will replace Danny Woodburn (Watchmen, Seinfeild's) as the voice of Splinter. Tony recently working with producer Michael Bay on Pain And Gain, might have had something to do with his casting. I'll be interesting to see if the studio looks to hire another well-known actors to voice the other turtles.
Here's hoping they also land Steve-O for Donatello.
