Will Arnett Teases Bruising Fight In Ninja Turtles

Staff Writer

Will Arnett will play Vernon Fenwick, the ambitious cameraman who works with April O'Neil [Megan Fox] in the upcoming film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He recently revealed that filming fight scenes for the movie has left him "exhausted and bruised". "We went to New York, we were shooting that, and what was great was, I'd be shooting all day, shooting a huge fight scene for like a week where we're fighting Shredder and the Foot Clan. Then I'd come home exhausted and bruised, and the second I walk in the door, my sons say 'Dad, we're playing Turtles and you're Shredder!' I was inundated with it - just 24 hours a day Turtles!" he told Digital Spy. Arnett was asked whether he was a fan of the Ninja Turtles when he was a kid, to which he explained: "It's funny, it's one of those things… it fell between the cracks for me, a little bit, because I was just a little old. But I have a much younger brother and he was a fan. so I was kind of exposed to it when I was a teenager. I knew who they all were and what happened was, almost simultaneous, to me being in discussions to become part of the picture, my own sons became massive, like seemingly overnight, massive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans. It was so strange". "I started meeting with these guys and then… I actually watched the cartoon, the animated show on Nickelodeon with my sons, and I was like, 'This is a great story and there's something here', and so I got involved. Of course, Michael Bay's producing and it just seems like such a great thing to be a part of, and so I signed on very excited, and I had a fantastic experience". Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles is produced by Michael Bay [Transformers] and directed by Jonathan Liebesman [Wrath of the Titans], with Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Alan Ritchson as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael. The film is set to be released on June 6, 2014.
