From the “What the Hell?” file comes this photo from the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in New York City. It’s actress, comedienne and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg seemingly being film in some kind of acting performance in the new comic book adaptation about the other Fab Four. But who is she playing, and who does her hair?
The truth is, we don’t know. At this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Whoopi was playing Baxter Stockman. We’ve got Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter and William Fichtner as maybe Shredder, so who’s Whoopi playing? Is it cameo or a role of major or minor veracity? Again, no idea.
So what have producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman have in store? Your guess is as good as there’s.
More news as it develops.
