Variety is reporting that star of the hit CW series, Arrow, Stephen Amell, has been cast in the sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as none other than the fan favorite vigilante, the hockey mask wearing Casey Jones.

The website describes him “A loner who becomes an ally of the turtles and a love interest for O’Neil.” Variety goes on to say  that Amell “tested with a half-dozen actors over the weekend, but it was his chemistry with Fox that led to the studio eventually giving the role to the star of CW’s Arrow.”


Amell’s work on on Arrow as the vigilante Oliver Queen should come in very handy, though he’ll have to learn how to use a hockey stick instead of a bow and arrow.

Michael Bay is back to produce with David Green directing a script written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec.
