Johnny Knoxville to voice Leonardo in ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ Tony Shalhoub added also

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles added to more actors, but only as the voice for their respective characters.

Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-movie-image LeonardoDeadline reports in an April 3 article that Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub are on the film as voice actors.

The article states “Johnny Knoxville has just been added to voice the role of Leonardo, and Tony Shalhoub is voicing Splinter, the Yoda-like creature that teaches chop socky technique to the turtles. Now, Pete Ploszek played the role of Leonardo during the filming part, while Seinfeld‘s Danny Woodburn played Splinter.”

Paramount reportedly had always left the door open for the characters to be voiced by someone other than the actor in the motion capture suit.
