Do you feel that Vernon should be recast in the next film? Is it time?

Nah, this was the one casting that was spot-on. He just needed the pink shirt with a tie.

Nah, just send Vern on a permanent vacation.

Either that or make it obvious that "April" is back doing the journalism thing and turn him into actual competition.

The whole "Falcon" thing kind of set him up for being self centered and interested in his own fame... just roll with it and maybe an opportunity he thinks he can't lose makes him far too tempted to possibly betray the Turtles and out them to the larger public in the process.

Yeah, Matt Damon could play him.

I'm with Indigo on this one. I liked him well enough, but he needs to become April's competition and "nemesis" like he was in the OT. Maybe he could be a little resentful of the turtles taking away his credit and taking so much of April's attention, etc.

Do you think a bigger actor for Vernon could improve TMNT3's chances at the box office?

It's possible. Who did you have in mind? :tcool:

Eminem is the one person who could do the part justice.

I agree. If someone asked me should Eminem be in TMNT3? I would say absolutely yes but only one shot one opportunity for him.

Nah, keep Will Arnett, but have Eminem dub his own voice in.

I could definitely see that angle; "The Falcon" becoming unhappy at having to give it up. Or the Turtles growing increasingly annoyed with him because he won't stop, they find it wrong to keep misleading people, he excuses it as avoiding being questioned 'for their sake' if the public noticed he suddenly stopped, and they feel he's using their need to stay out of the public eye and inability to step forward to his advantage because "what are they gonna do." (Then his ass gets into major trouble and they reluctantly have to save him, eventually leading to a newfound respect for them.)

Or you could just... y'know... cut him out of the movie completely.

In the cartoon I don't think Vernon was ever intended to be gay. Remember it was an 80's cartoon, back then gay characters were a no-go especially in kids shows.

He wasn't real world gay, he was stereotype gay. Re-watch any episode with him, you'll see. Ultra flamboyant Liberace.

Or alternately just a complete whiny sissy who grew up so spoiled and coddled that he can't really deal with life as an adult. I could have bought him having rich parents who made sure everything was done for him and bought his way through journalism school and into that job, and now that it's up to him he's floundering and desperate to outshine April, which he never succeeds at on his own.


Shame these films weren't worth a whole series of them, now that they got Vern fame hungry and could have gone somewhere with that.

Although I haven't bothered to see either of the two movies, it will not keep me from asking these two all important questions.

Do we even need Vernon at all in these movies? Did Vernon even contribute to anything of any worth at all in either of these two movies?

No? Yes? DTMFA?

In the first movie he made for a good wheel man since none of the Turtles were experienced at driving. In the second movie he did help bail out April and Casey when they were in police custody. So yea, I'd say they had a good reason for being in the story.

If anything, April's roommate (who I dub Not-Irma) was a pointless cameo and waste of really good casting. What was the point of putting the lovely and hilarious Abby Elliott in the film if you didn't get her character to do anything?! Just a friggin waste! Hell, if anything she could've watched over Splinter after Shredder beat the living crap outta him.
