There's a mini Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reunion happening inside Jared Hess' science-fiction-loving film Gentlemen Broncos. Can you figure out the link? Plus the director reveals his Krull roots.

Both Josh Pais and Sam Rockwell have memorable characters in the new Gentlemen Broncos, but before they were fantasy fans they both appeared in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which the film's director was more than happy to mention last night at a special screening of the film with the cast.

Jared Hess: I don't know if too many people know this but Josh Pais [who plays the camp counselor in GB] was in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, as the voice of Raphael. He was the only guy in the suit to also do the voice. That continues to blow my mind.

Jared Hess: Were you a part of the Foot Clan?

Sam Rockwell: Yes I was in the street crew. I was with Shredder yes.
