[VIDEO] MTV Wants ‘Community’ Actor Donald Glover in ‘Ninja Turtles’
Due to “community” uproar (see what I did there?), MTV caught up with ‘Community’ actor Donald Glover to get his thoughts on the grassroots campaign to get him to play Donatello in Michael Bay’s upcoming ‘Ninja Turtles’ film reboot.
“I mean, Donatello’s cool too, but all the stories about him were never that great. I guess I could be rude like Raphael is in the opening sequence of the animated series. That’s his thing, right? Raphael is cool but rude. [Donatello] was always the angsty one. He and Leonardo was always an alpha male-omega male kind of thing, where they would fight each other a lot because Leonardo was deemed the leader, the oldest. But Raphael always wanted that title, and Splinter was always trying to break that up. Michelangelo is like ‘Stop fighting.’ He’s the omega male. He’s the one they all beat up to get their frustrations out.” - Donald Glover, ScienceFiction.com
In short, Donald would prefer to be Raphael but if given the opportunity to Donatello, he would not pass it up!
