After announcing Megan Fox as April O’Neil, and Alan Ritchson (who guest starred in a few episodes of Smallville) as Raphael in his upcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; producer Michael Bay has now revealed which actors will be playing the three remaining turtles; not that you’ll recognize any of them.
Pete Ploszek, who guest starred in an episode of Parks and Recreation will play the turtles’ leader Leonardo (blue bandana). Jeremy Howard, who played Dickie in Soccer Dog: European Cup, will play Donatello, the smart turtle (well, you wouldn’t want the smart one to be the leader, would you?) in the purple bandana. Finally, Noah Fisher, who has a very common name that makes it impossible to Google him effectively, will play Michelangelo, the ‘party dude’ in the orange bandana.
Of course, the turtles will either be in costume or full CG, so face recognition isn’t a factor. But with a faceless character, acting ability becomes exponentially more important. Let’s hope this cast of unknowns is up to the task.
