Will Arnett Meets Carmelo Anthony in New "TMNT: Out of the Shadows" Clip

Paramount Pictures has released a new clip from "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" that sees Will Arnett's Vern Fenwick starstruck by NBA player Carmelo Anthony (a.k.a 'Melo) at a party.

While the comedic moment plays well without context, the cameo likely happened because of Anthony's ties to the franchise, as he reached a partnership with Nickelodeon last year to oversee and develop a line of "TMNT" consumer products. As part of the agreement, he'll be appearing in a "Ninja Turtles" comic book, releasing this week from IDW.

On top of that, the studio released the following two videos of b-roll from the film's shoot, giving some insight into the sequel's stunts (but potentially with minor spoilers):

Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to theaters this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O'Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen "Sheamus" Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
