Val Kilmer has signed on to replace Will Arnett as the voice of KITT in NBC's veiled Ford Mustang commercial, Knight Rider. Problems with Arnett came about when GMC--whom the Arrested Development star has worked with as the less-literal voice of their trucks--realized he would be schilling Ford products through a weak action plot.
So why is Val Kilmer such a poor replacement? Do you not remember his work in Batman Forever? (It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out how to embed this, so please listen.)
Dreth? Thircuth? Thircuth?!
