Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adds William Fichtner; As Casey Jones? Dr. Baxter Stockman?
We get another casting announcement for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie with William Fichtner.
Deadline has it that William Fichtner has been added to the TMNT cast, but details surrounding his role in the movie are sketchy.
All that is said is that William Fichtner is said to be playing a lead with iconic stature in the Turtles’ mythology.
Most likely many would think Shredder as the actor playing the villain has yet to be named, but it seems as if Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman are sticking pretty close to the source material (at least the toon), and as Shredder is the Japanese man, Oroku Saki, that would rule out Fichtner.
Perhaps William Fichtner is playing scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman who is responsible for the Mousers and works for Shredder.
Fightner recently had a role in The Dark Knight (pictured right).
Another possibility could be Casey Jones?
In related news tons of images hit recently of Megan Fox, who plays April O'Neil.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a June 6, 2014 starring Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, and Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, and Pete Ploszekas the Turtles.
