Whoopi Goldberg

One of the more interesting aspects of Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been the rather eclectic casting. Sure, hiring Megan Fox as April O’Neil was a fairly obvious choice, considering her connection to producer Michael Bay. But Will Arnett was a fun pick to play April’s cameraman and rival Vernon Fenwick, and Danny Woodburn and William Fichtner were intriguing additions as well.

The latest star to join the cast was Whoopi Goldberg, another pretty unexpected name. It wasn’t immediately obvious whom she’d be playing, but we now have word that her character will also be connected to the Channel 6 News team. Hit the jump to find out who she is.

‘A Little Bit Of Heaven’ Trailer


The Weinstein Co has released an early international teaser trailer for A Little Bit of Heaven, a romantic dramedy from director Nicole Kassell (The Woodsman, The Closer, Cold Case). The film stars Kate Hudson as “a guarded woman who finds out she’s dying of cancer, but when she meets her match, the threat of falling in love is scarier than death.” The film co-stars Gael García Bernal, Romany Malco, Kathy Bates, Whoopi Goldberg, Lucy Punch, Rosemarie DeWitt, Steven Weber, and Johann Urb. Looks too generic and by the numbers for me, and the musical selections used in the trailer are beyond horrible. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

As I start this post, John Lasseter is on stage at D23, delivering a string of Toy Story 3 announcements.

It depends on how far Lasseter goes in dropping news bombs. Already, though, I have some surprising casting news to report…
