Laura Linney’s Role Captured for Ninja Turtles 2

by Justin Bozung

SPOILER ALERT: A few weeks ago we announced that Academy Award-nominated actress Laura Linney had signed on to appear in some form in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Her role, up until today, had been kept under wraps. Today, photos went live on the internet that show Linney on the set with Will Arnett and Megan Fox as a NYPD Detective. Her character’s badge and the back-up police behind her point to the obvious. It seems as if Linney’s character is pressuring April O’Neil and Vernon for information.


For reasons that should be obvious, the Ninja Turtles have always keep their identities under wraps from the public. But in TMNT 2, which is slated for release in the Summer of 2016, it’s apparent that the NYPD are hunting for answers. Our hats here at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.com come off to salute the producers of the new Turtles sequel as they have chosen an excellent lead actress to represent the cops in the film. Linney’s one hell of an actress and sure to capture the audience.

SUPER SPOILER ALERT: This next image shows Michelangelo and company speaking directly to Laura Linney in broad-daylight. All of these images seem to be from the same scene from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. We’re guessing that the Ninja Turtles, here, are being publically lambasted and now they’ve got to decide how they’re going to save face.


What are your thoughts about the new photos from the set? We’d love to hear from all the Shell-Heads!

What if Laura Linney’s character, Is this movie’s version of Chief Sterns?

Billy Bob Throrton May 14, 2015 - 7:37 pm

good pull.
or that irish cop relentlessly pusuing the turtles because he thinks they’re leprechauns.
I always wanted to see a dark version of that character,like he dies but he still want his wish from the leprechauns(think the hitchhiker from Creepshow 2)

I expect her character to play major roles in the story line.

Billy Bob Throrton May 13, 2015 - 10:53 pm

you’re dumb,this couldn’t be more of a supporting cast member

Ronaldo May 14, 2015 - 8:23 am

let me clarify for you billy bob…. Her (Laura Linney) decisions throughout the film (movie) will either hurt or help the TMNT (teenage mutant ninja turtles). Let me know if you have any questions.

Billy Bob Throrton May 14, 2015 - 7:39 pm

I got a question:
why would they include a character that doesn’t affect the main characters in any way?

by the logic u just said,every character is major

I think i get what ur saying though,she’ll be either a gordon rip off or like frances mcdormand and bitch at the turtles

Kind of like Kelsey Grammar or Stanley Tucci in the Transformers 4 movie?

Billy Bob Throrton May 13, 2015 - 11:03 pm

everybody’s wildly speculating with her,did u idiots WATCH the Transformers movies?

She’s going to have a role just like Stanley Tucci,John Malkovich,Frances McDormand or any of the actors of that calibur in Michael Bay movies.

It’s always stereotypical as all hell,and either an authority figure to bitch at the Autobots or an eccentric millionaire who’s involved in bottom of the barrel Michael Bay jokes

I’m guessing the former with her.

It’d be funny if she was Detective Miller. That character is based on Frank Miller,if you know anything about his issues with women,that’d be hilarious. At some con he’d probably go on a rant about not being a woman,but being from God’s Green America or something grandpa-ish.

Alan Wahl May 15, 2015 - 1:28 am

I agree. I think her role will be exactly like what you have stated. Pretty much a phoned in performance. Good actress in a non-academy award winning movie.

Biggest mistake was having Megan Fox play April O’Neil in my opinion.

Adam Apex May 15, 2015 - 9:04 am

megan fox as april o’neill is insulting to the character. gain some weight you fake-faced… whatever the heck you are! …not human, that’s for sure

pow May 17, 2015 - 4:56 pm

More Megan bashing by the retarded.

lilly megan May 22, 2015 - 6:42 am

i think she’s GRODY, remember Grody to the Max news on TMNT episodes on TV

They should really think about who they hire to play in these movies. Directors change up a lot of things that don’t go along with the cartoons. That’s why I hate some of these movies. We need a red head April O’Neal. They will pick anybody to play a part. Then they will find out why the movie don’t be a big success!
