CATEGORIES Movie NewsCowabunga! The remaining three Ninja Turtles have been cast in producer Michael Bay's upcoming adaptation of the beloved comic book series.
Deadline reports that Pete Ploszek will play Leonardo, Jeremy Howard will play Donatello, and Noel Fisher will play Michelangelo. They join "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" star Alan Ritchson, who was cast last week in the role of Raphael.
Fisher was most recently seen on the big screen in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," and had a starring role in the History Channel's "Hatfields & McCoys" miniseries. He previously starred in "Ninja Turtles" director Jonathan Liebesman's film "Battle Los Angeles."
Ploszek has two TV acting credits to his name, appearing in guest spots on "Shameless" and "Parks and Recreation."
Little information is available about Howard, perhaps indicative of Liebesman and Bay's attempts to put a fresh spin on the franchise by casting little-known actors as the leads. (Not-so-unknown Megan Fox was previously cast as TV reporter and turtle sidekick April O'Neil.) The pair is also eliminating both the "teenage" and "mutant" aspects of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, making the characters aliens instead.
"Ninja Turtles" opens June 6, 2014.
