Cowabunga Dudes! “Arrow’s” Stephen Amell has reportedly been cast as Casey Jones in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle 2”. Amell will be joining 4 other green vigilantes in the fight against Shredder and the Foot Clan. Variety reported earlier today that Amell beat out half a dozen other actors for the role. According to reports it was his chemistry with Megan Fox that ultimately landed him the role.
“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.”
Well damn, I guess taking on Ra’s Al Ghul and the League of Assassins wasn’t enough, he’s now going to kick some Foot Clan ass?! Nothing about the plot has been revealed yet but this casting actually has me excited. I’m a huge fan of Amell and ‘Arrow’ I might actually go watch this one in a theater. ( I said “might”)
It’s pretty damn official now. Stephen Amell just confirmed on his facebook page that he has indeed been cast as Casey Jones.
What do you all think of Stephen Amell being cast as the new Casey Jones? Do you think he’ll do well behind that hockey mask?
