Aug. 8 From Arrested Development to The Lego Movie, comedy is Will Arnett’s strong suit. So it’s safe to say that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a $125 million action film featuring more than enough CGI explosions to level the Bluth banana stand a thousand times over, was a bit of a departure for the 44-year-old actor.
Arnett pins the unlikely career shift on his sons, Archie, 5, and Abel, 3. “What piqued my interest was the fact that my kids were so into the Nickelodeon show–they were so passionate,” he says.
Hopefully his toddlers will be impressed by his take on Vernon Fenwick in this Michael Bay–produced reboot of the 1980s comic-book franchise that has spawned numerous Saturday-morning cartoon series and live-action movies.
