Seth Green Joins TMNT Cartoon
It was only a matter of time before Seth Green joined in another cartoon series, but this one is special. Seth Green will be joining Nickelodeons Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (If you haven’t seen the show, I highly recommend it. While it is different then the original series, it does mirror a lot of the fun stuff that made the original series so great.) Not only his he just joining the show, he will be taking the lead and voicing Leonardo!
If he came to this shell game already steeped in the Turtles ethos, there was yet another reason why this seemed like a marriage made in heaven: the woman Green is married to. He explains that Clare Grant, his wife of four years, has long nurtured a secret crush on Leonardo. It’s a secret she confided by chance to a “Ninja Turtles” executive producer a while back, which, according to Green, may have set in motion his enlistment to step in for Jason Biggs, the voice of Leonardo for this animated series’ first two seasons.
So, to sum up: Green now gets to fulfill a lifelong dream while also bringing to life his wife’s fantasy heartthrob.
