‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ to Reunite ‘Goonies’ Stars Sean Astin and Corey Feldman
The ‘Goonies’ never say die, and we hope film stars Sean Astin and Corey Feldman never will either. It might be a long time coming yet before anyone gets a ‘Goonies’ sequel off the ground but that won’t stop Astin and Feldman from reuniting on-screen, both lending their voices to Nickelodeon’s current incarnation of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!’ Astin himself has voiced the gruff Raphael from the beginning, but what mysterious role will his ‘Goonies’ co-star play?
A little ‘Goonies’ reunion will have to do until the real revival gets off the ground, and that’s exactly what Nickelodeon’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is giving us. TVGuide reports that former ‘Goonies’ star and ’80s icon Corey Feldman will lend his voice to the show for several epsiodes of the coming season, joining former castmate Sean Astin (‘The Lord of the Rings‘) as Raphael.
Details of Feldman’s role on the series are being kept tightly under wraps, but executive producer Ciro Nieli claims “His role is a perfect complement to his relationship with Sean…it couldn’t be any better.” Feldman actually voiced Donatello in two installments of the original film series, and ultimately lost the role of Raphael in the new animated series to his ‘Goonies’ co-star Astin.
