Will Arnett has been replaced as the voice of KITT in NBC's soon-to-premiere Knight Rider TV-movie/backdoor pilot. According to Variety, though Arnett had already recorded what I am sure was some deliciously dry dialogue, it came to light that because the Arrested Development alum has done voice-over work for General Motors — and KITT is "played" by a Ford Mustang — he'd have to graciously bow out.
Val Kilmer instead will lend his pipes to the shape-shifting upgraded supercar.
How did NBC not know about those commercials until now? I remember them. And they're replacing him with Val Kilmer?! HIs voice is not what I'd call memorable. Get Mr. Feeny back instead at least. I don't think he's too busy these days.
