If you’re not familiar with the character of Casey Jones, like the Turtles he is a vigilante and fights crime with weapons made from sporting equipment, such as hockey sticks, golf clubs and baseball bats. Previous iterations of the character also had long, unruly dark locks, though Amell is currently still sporting his Arrow buzzcut.
Recently, Megan Fox – who returns to the sequel as April O’Neil and happens to be Casey’s love interest – was spotted on location at Grand Central Station in New York City sporting a sexy schoolgirl look a la Britney Spears!
TMNT 2 this theaters in summer 2016, and also stars Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Brian Tee, Tyler Perry, Laura Linney, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Pete Ploszek.
