‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell Lands Casey Jones Role in ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2′

Variety is reporting that “Stephen Amell has been tapped to play Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

Megan Fox is set to return as April O’Neil with Will Arnett also returning as Vernon Fenwick.  David Green is slated to direct but plot details and information on other returning cast members are still unknown.

The character of Casey Jones is a loner who becomes an ally of the turtles and a love interest for O’Neil, Jones is a fan favorite of the series going back to when Elias Koteas played him in the 1990 New Line film.

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.

The “Turtles” franchise is one of Paramount’s top properties following its success last summer, when it earned $191 million domestically — so much so that Paramount dated the sequel for 2016 before even locking down a director or cast”.
