'TMNT' Co-Creator Slams Megan Fox's Movie Casting
March 06, 2013
Michael Bay put his headline-grabbing history with Megan Fox behind him by casting the actress as April O'Neil in his upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie.
But the new mom looks poised for another feud with a behind-the-scenes scribe now that TMNT co-creator has slammed on her casting.
Peter Laird, who created Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Kevin Eastman (who has been involved with the new movie from the start), took to his blog earlier this week (via) and let the world know he's less than thrilled Megan will rock April's yellow trenchcoat.
"My only exposure to Megan Fox as an actress is through her role in two Transformers movies and the wretched (but happily forgettable) Jennifer's Body," he wrote. "It may not be fair to judge her range of acting skills just from those three movies, but I think it is safe to say that there are probably hundreds of better choices for the role of April O'Neil."
"Of course, her name has promotional value, and maybe that's what they want. Who knows? I can't get myself too worked up about it."
Are you in favor of Megan's casting?
