Report: NBA Stars to Cameo in TMNT 2 Sequel

Recently Will Arnett and Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio filmed a scene for the 2016 Ninja Turtles sequel. They are sitting courtside at a NBA game featuring the New York Knicks vs. the Los Angeles Clippers. The two were spotted kissing at the Knicks game.  Apparently Will Arnett’s character (Vernon Fenwick) has moved on to the Brazilian model after Casey Jones becomes involved with April O’Neil.

The news about the NBA stars appearing in Turtles 2 leaked from ESPN’s Arash Markazi. He reported via his Twitter ” DeAndre Jordan, Matt Barnes, J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers & Spencer Hawes will be filming a scene for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 tomorrow.” Markazi tweeted this news on 3/25. No one is aware why the scene is being shot at Madison Square Garden but director David Green has definitely gotten our attention. Who knows, maybe Michelangelo will rip a dunk?


The first film suffered major scrutiny after its screenplay leaked online, causing a major backlash from Turtles fans around the world. So the entire crew will have to be careful this time around. It’s quite obvious some plot points are completed if shooting has taken place. Stay tuned for more information.
