Arrow’s Stephen Amell Cast As Casey Jones In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2
It seems Arrow star Stephen Amell will be giving up his bow and arrows for a hockey stick. It’s been reported that he has been casted for the role of Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel.
According to Variety, “Amell tested with a half-dozen actors over the weekend, but it was his chemistry with Fox that led to the studio eventually giving the role to the star of CW’s Arrow.”
Casey Jones was first portayed by Elias Koteas in the New Line release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In case you don’t remember or were too young, the film was released on March 30, 1990. That was 25 years ago.
Megan Fox (April O’Neil) and Will Arnett (Vernon Fenwick) will be reprising their roles from the first film with David Green directing.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set to hit theatres on June 3, 2016.
