Ugh. I dread even writing this post because you all know how we feel about Megan Fox being cast as O’Neil.
Yes, you’ve read correctly. toyz2men is not fond of Megan Fox playing April in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. You should already be aware of this information if you listen to our podcasts and we highly recommend them! Anywho, Megan Fox is playing our favorite turtle loving news reporter and while she may be skipping the classic yellow jumpsuit, she is wearing a yellow jacket. Not exactly the same but as least she doesn’t look like she should be on Naked News or something. Here are some pics from the set!
As you can see in the picture above, Will Arnett is moving what appears to be some equipment for the news station. Now, the reason I’m mentioning this? Freddy. In TMNT II: The Secret of the Ooze, Freddy was a member of April’s field staff and was at the TGRI site where the toxic waste was being cleaned up and found the mutated dandelion. See where I’m going with this?
I think one of three things could happen. Arnett is going to basically be: 1. a “Freddy”, a spy for the Foot clan. 2. Casey Jones as a regular guy who works days for Channel 6 News and moonlights as a vigilante crime fighter, or Vernon Fenwick, cameraman for Channel 6 who often tried to replace April as reporter in the ’87 series. That’s who he’s currently billed as on IMDB.
I’m hoping that Will Arnett will play Casey Jones. At least until they cast someone better. What do you guys think about the remake and the casting so far? Let your voice be heard so that we can stop Michael Bay from ruining what’s left of our childhoods!
