This is great news for somebody like myself who is a huge fan of Arrow and it’s lead actor Stephen Amell! I’ve been saying for a long while that this dude deserves a chance to be a legit movie star and this may be his shot. According to Variety he landed the part over several other actors due to his chemistry with Megan Fox. Normally I would be skeptical about a report like this which could be a rumor but when an actor reports it himself then you can count on it to be true. Check out his tweet from earlier today regarding the role!
I actually didn’t mind the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot from last year. It had it’s problems but overall it was an enjoyable movie. I had heard they were going to bring in the character of Casey Jones for the sequel and I was always curious as to who they would cast. Well now I know and I couldn’t be happier! Let me know what you all think of this casting in the comment section.
