When you picture Krang, the notorious super villain alien whose brain lives in a high-tech robotic suit, who do you envision as the voice? An actor with a seasoned career of playing ultra-nefarious baddies, perhaps?
Well, when it comes to voicing Krang’s live action debut, the honor went to none other than Brad Garrett, best known for his work as Ray Ramano’s affable, slightly awkward brother on the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond.
As first reported by the Los Angeles Times, EW can confirm that Garrett – who appeared in the second season of FX series Fargo — replaces actor-comedian Fred Armisen in voicing the nasty alien from Dimension X.

The casting rounds out a roster of beloved comic book characters making their debut in the second TMNT film, including bumbling henchmen Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE’s Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry), and vigilante Casey Jones (Arrow star Stephen Amell).
Picking up where the 2014 hit film left off, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows finds the four pizza-loving heroes on a half-shell struggling to reconcile their do-gooder deeds with the fact that they’ve kept their identities secret from the public. But when Shredder (Brian Tee) escapes from prison and launches an evil plan involving some high-tech equipment, the turtles vow to save the day – and find themselves battling the ferocious Krang in the process.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows opens in theaters June 3.
