‘Arrow’ Stephen Amell Will Play Casey Jones In ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’
  |  @   |  

Stephen Amell, title star of The CW’s Arrow, has been cast as Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 movie. Amell screen tested against a handful of other contenders, but was chosen because of the chemistry with Megan Fox, who will reprise her April O’Neill role. Will Arnett is also set to return.

This will be the first major film role for Amell, whose acting credits are mainly in television series and movies.

Amell is no stranger to the vigilante role and should be able to ease right into the Casey Jones persona, as that character was created to be a parody of all vigilantes, and a love interest of April O’Neill. As the Arrow, Amell chases down criminals and delivers his own brand of justice (much less death-y these days). The people don’t know whether to love him or hate him.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, although not critically acclaimed, laughed all the way to the bank last Summer with $191 million, so much money that the sequel was immediately ordered.

Although not a Turtle fan, I may have to go see how my Stephen Amell translates on the big screen.

UPDATE – Amell just posted about the big news to his Twitter account:
