If it's not broken, don't fix it?

diminishing returns would argue different.

I find it oddly small minded that man fans want an asian actor in the voice over role of an a ninja rodent. No wonder the studios don't always look to fanboy approval...

Ok... but Kevin Clash had experience with voice-work. All the voice actors that have played Splinter have used an Asian accent (except for Mako and Hoon Lee who are both of Asian ascent).

So I don't understand this idea of us fans being "small-minded" when we want an actor who is Asian or can sound Asian.

Not saying Danny "could" pull off an accent or voice for Splinter, but looking over his career it's a little hard to tell he can. From what I've seen in either TV or film, he's always typecast as the grouchy and hoarse-voiced corporate or mob boss.

I'll say it before and I'll say it again... a voice-actor who's known for voicing cartoons and videogames (Phil LaMarr's "Samurai Jack" voice would've been perfect for Splinter) or actors such as these would've been perfect:

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Ken Watanabe, Chow Yun-Fat, Rick Yune, Andy Lau, Tony Leung, James Hong, Hiroyuki Sanada, Masato Harada, or Ric Young.

I think it's small minded. No offense.
People limited by the scope of what came before and they loved.

For example, what was the description? Asian, rodent, martial arts master, anyone but an asian man is cast and the fanboys rage.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

Dustin Hoffman I believe...

and no stereotypical accent

The point i try to make is if they keep doing the same thing over and over again then the IP will become stagnant...it will not grow and expand with society. Batman has been around for a long time and had changed along with society....what if they decided every Joker must look and act like 60's Batman Joker???

Splinter and his accent just depends on his influence I'd say. If he's spent most of his early life in Japan, he'll likely have a more Japanese accent. If he's mostly in the US like his sons, he'll have one more like them.

We don't know the background of this Splinter yet. Just have to wait and see.

I wouldn't compare it too much to something like Kung Fu Panda or Avatar since those films/shows were too much about the variety of accents one can hear in their worlds. And they technically were all talking/writing some form of Chinese.

Not all "people" that "grow up" in asia have Asian accents.
I would hope even michael bay understood that.
- again see KungFu Panda or mulan to a lesser degree.

I can't believe people are even remotely ok with this casting. Or this movie for that matter.

I think splinter will have an Asian accent, it's been a part of his character for a long time and just because the casting doesn't say Asian doesn't mean the character won't. They probably hired him because he was cheap and maybe he voice tested well.

why do i get the feeling that Splinter will be nothing but a comedic sidekick of sorts?

i was watching an episode of Seinfeld yesterday where Woodburn comes out and i can not for the life of me see anything about him that scream Splinter

Well, they live in New York so it would make sense. It would take some getting used to though.

This movie is a massive question mark. We have zero idea where this is going unfortunately.

Michael Keaton/Michael Rosenbaum(sp)/Jamie Fox/Will Smith/Peter Dinklage among many others have roots in lighter comedic roles only to serve the point that comedic actors have a great sense of timing that leads to great dramatic performances.

That being said, what is really required of splinter.
What would a 13 year old boy really demand of splinter in order to be satified?
Watch an episode of The Last Air bender and you'll see kids characters straddle absurd comedy and tense drama like a horse.

Last I seen of Danny was Watchmen. And he was only half a joke in that movie.

Actually making them color coded was a good idea. That way you don't constantly refer to the turtles by name to tell them apart
