As they did before, Deadline got the scoop on the remaining actors set to play the other Ninja Turtles for the upcoming reboot. So here are your new turtles:
Pete Ploszek will play Leonardo
Jeremy Howard will play Donatello
Noel Fisher will play Michaelangelo
Alan Ritchson will play Rafael
Megan Fox has already been cast in the female lead role (which one would assume is April O’Neil, though I’m hearing that they might change her name!), so all that remains are the villains and Splinter. With filming set to begin soon, it’s good to see that the cast is finally rounding out.
If you’re trying to figure out where you’ve seen these actors before, don’t strain yourself, because you probably haven’t. For the most part, these guys are all unknowns who’ve had bit parts on some major shows. Considering the turtles will be brought to life via mo-cap instead of bulky suits, it’s not as though it’s a big deal to have recognizable actors in these roles. The only thing I care about, is if they do the characters justice.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to release on June 6, 2014.
