Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Casts Bebop
TMNT 2 has found its Bebop with Gary Anthony Williams.
Deadline describes the Shredder henchman as: He’ll start off as a punk street thug member of a ragtag gang of misfits who acts as if he’s intellectually superior, but isn't.
Williams enthusiastically posted the following on Facebook as well:
Okey Doke! Finally I can say something! Super-Duper happy to be doing this movie! Can't wait to whoop some teenage turtle butt! Also, NY friends, I'll be in and out of your city a lot. Please make sure to buy me fancy drinks and delicious vegan food. But please don't look me in the eyes. I'm real Diva-like.
Bebop's partner in crime, Rocksteady, has also been confirmed for TMNT 2, but has yet to be cast.
Williams is known for his voice work on various Batman animated series, MAD, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and roles on The Soul Man, Benched and Raising Hope.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" has a June 3, 2016 release directed by David Green and produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, starring Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon, Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman and Brian Tee as Shredder.
