TMNT: Out of the Shadows Changes Its Krang Voice

Brad Garrett will supply Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows’ Krang voice

There appears to be a slight change in plans when it comes to who will be supplying the Krang voice in Paramount Pictures‘ upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. According to The LA Times, the film’s antagonist will now be voiced by Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond, Fargo). The film’s producers previously announced that Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen would be doing the Krang voice as part of the film’s WonderCon panel back in March. According to today’s update, the prior announcement ended up being a bit premature as Armisen’s schedule did not mesh with TMNT‘s post production plans.

“I think seeing Krang is going to be trippy,” star Megan Fox previously told CS about the iconic TMNT villain. “He’s a very weird looking character. They’re going to make him real. He’s not a cartoon.”

Although Krang’s cinematic origins have yet to be revealed, we asked if a potential Dimension X reveal could one day pave the way to the new film series existing in the TMNT multiverse. After all, previous animated iterations of the turtles have crossed over with one another on more than once occasion.

“Krang opens up some big options,” says Fuller. “But that’s the challenge of the movies… Everyone comes to it with a different translation of their turtle knowledge. Someone might not know what Dimension X is… You used to make a movie and just think, ‘This is a great movie. I love the characters. I love the setting. Hopefully, it turns out.’ Now, you kind of have to think, “If we open this door, we kind of have to walk through it.’ That may be four movies down the line, but you’ve got to think about it. We definitely have to think more long term than we did before.”

The Out of the Shadows cast also includes Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Laura Linney, Tyler Perry, Sheamus, Gary Anthony Williams, Brittany Ishibashi, Stephen Amell and Brian Tee. Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, and Noel Fisher are also reprising their roles as Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo, and Michelangelo.
