Michael Bay Has Found His Turtles

Bay Has Found His Turtles
By: Jay
Michael Bay
has found his turtles for his up coming Ninja Turtles movie, but unlike
his casting of Megan Fox, Bay has decided to go with lesser known actors. News
broke last week that Alan Ritchson (Smallville’s Aquaman and the
upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s Gloss) was the first actor to
jump into the ooze as Raphael. Now three other actors have joined him. Pete
Ploszek (Shameless, Parks and Recreation) will play Leonardo, Jeremy Howard (How
The Grinch Stole Christmas, Sydney White
) will bring Donatello to life, and
rounding out the Turtles is Noel Fisher (Battle
Los Angeles, The
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2
) as Michelangelo.

The original movies used costumes designed by Jim
Henson’s Creature Shop
in London,
and Jim Henson had said that costumes were the most advanced that he had ever
worked with at that point. Bay’s Ninja Turtles will use motion-capture
animation that according to Deadline should give us a “more sophisticated
Avatar-like approach.” This technology will give the Turtles more personality
and allow the emotions from the actors to come across on the screen in a more
realistic way.
The latest Ninja Turtles movie has been receiving a
lot of attention from fans, not all good ever since Michael Bay referred to
them as ”aliens”, and again when Fox was cast as April O’Neil.  Love it or hate it, the Ninja Turtles is
set for a June 6, 2014 release, so  check
back with ComicFrontline for more news on Ninja Turtles as the role for
the villain Shredder has yet to be cast. How do you feel about the casting so
far? And if you could cast any star in the role of the Shredder, who will it
be? Make sure to let us know how you feel in the comments below.
