Guest Actors for Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Revealed

During SDCC 2016, Nickelodeon revealed at least one significant guest actor who would be working on the fifth season of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That actor was none other than Mark Hamill, who has been given the task of providing a voice to Kavaxas, the Demodragon of the Underworld. Surprisingly, it looks like his role will come into play very soon, as these episodes are set to air at the beginning of the next season. Now that the final year of this series has an entirely new name, Nick has seen fit to reveal some of the other voices we can expect to hear on Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Without further ado, here is the latest list of voice actors who will be guest starring at some point during the last 20 episodes of the 2k12 series:

  • Chris Sarandon as Count Dracula, the infamous vampire.
  • Nyambi Nyambi as Verminator Rex, the leader of a gang.
  • Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Sumo Kuma, a Samurai commander.
  • Graham McTavish as Savanti Romero, an evil time master from the future.
  • Dana DeLorenzo as Esmeralda, a Romanian traveler with a knowledge of monsters.

You may notice that this list is conspicuously missing one important name: Usagi Yojimbo. I’m assuming that this is because Nickelodeon has yet to discuss the character’s appearance in Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That being said, it’s pretty cool to see some of the people who have provided voices for various characters that we will see during the final season of Nick’s TMNT.

Chris Sarandon is a particularly notable name, as he has starred in such films as Fright Night and Child’s Play. You might also recognize his voice as that of Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas! Needless to say, you couldn’t choose a better actor to portray Count Dracula. Graham McTavish may also be recognizable for his role in The Hobbit Trilogy as the Dwarf named Dwalin. He will be reprising the role of Savanti Romero, which he previously took on during the Turtles in Time episode of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The other names on this list may be a bit less familiar, but you can rest assured that they are all fairly seasoned professionals. Personally, I can’t wait to see how they introduce Dracula and Esmerelda to the universe, and I’m genuinely hopeful that this will prove to be a fun little adventure in Tales of the TMNT. Sadly, we don’t yet know who will be voicing the Rabbit Ronin, but something tells me it won’t take long before that information is revealed. At the very least, you can expect them to unveil their plans for Miyamoto Usagi either before or during SDCC 2017.

What do you think about the guest actors chosen for Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Are you excited to see that the voice of Jack Skellington will soon play the role of Dracula? Or are you disappointed that they haven’t revealed any information about Usagi Yojimbo? Share your thoughts either in the comments below or on Facebook/Twitter.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!

        I’d prefer it if he didn’t turn Raph into a Vampire
