TELEVISION: Sean Astin confirmed as a ninja turtle


Entertainment Weekly sat down with Sean Astin (Sam from the Lord of the Rings) where he confirmed that he would provide the voice for Raphael in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series.  Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), and Rob Paulsen (Donatello) round out the cast.

The crazy thing is that Rob Paulsen played Raphael in the original series, and now he’s playing Donatello and I’m playing Raphael. [At the recording session] I was looking at him, like, “Am I doing this right?”
