Back in January, producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form confirmed that fan-favorite Casey Jones would be appearing in the Turtles big-budget sequel of 2016. Today we have been informed that Arrow star Stephen Amell has been cast as the masked vigilante. According to, six actors auditioned for the Jones role and Amell had the best chemistry. Casey Jones is a paramount character to the franchise and we have faith in Amell’s abilities to really capture this role.

Amell has proven his strength with multiple conditioning videos on YouTube, including some Parkour, which should help his character traverse from rooftop to rooftop. Now he has to get practicing his skills with hockey sticks, golf clubs, and baseball bats. Who knows? Maybe Donatello will get him a new gadget this time around?

Shell-heads have a lot to be excited about with the upcoming sequel. The new director Dave Green is known to deliver within budget, ultimately providing more plot and footage for the fans.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
