William Fichtner joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to take an iconic role

05.09.2013

Is the final for for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES finally filled? Looks like it's so.

William Fichtner has signed on to play a role in the film but it has not been specified. All we know is that it is a lead of "iconic stature." So you're telling me he's Shredder? That's the only important role that is left. I love Fitchner so it's hard for me to boo at this news. However, just because he is cast doesn't mean that the movie will be amazing. Doesn't mean it will suck total teets either.

This has been TMNT week this far. I've been posting pics of Megan Fox looking foxy and what is probably the Foot. I don't think they've given away too much thus far, but I feel like this is one I might need all the sneaky pics and clips on.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES will bring the heroes in a half shell to a theater near you on June 6, 2014.

I like Fichtner, in just about everything, but why is TMNT getting so much play on this site? I can't imagine that many people care. I know I don't.

I have absolutely no idea how to take this news. William Fichtner is an ok actor. It's not like they just booked Robert Redford or something. They booked a guy who's never had a starring role and usually ends up in the 5th or 6th lead of any movie. Maybe this would be bigger news if they actually told us who he was playing, and I'm not sure why they would keep that secret, judging from the negative feedback on this film already, they need all the "wins" they can get.

Love Fichtner, but I hope he's either doing maybe the voice of Krang or Splinter or (pretty please) playing Baxter Stockman. I don't want him to be a case of miscasting as Shredder.

On the plus side: William Fichtner. Minuses: Bay, Fox and the fact that its another "reboot" of a long played out franchise.

Danny Woodburn is playing Splinter, so I wonder if William Fichtner is playing Casey Jones. I seriously cannot see him playing Shredder.

BrokenDreamer - Don't worry about the The_Soloist - he just enjoys comic book movies a lot and gets all excited and sh*t like a kid. I doubt he cares for the thumbs down...coz like a kid...he's just busy spouting all the stuff he’s got to says coz he's suffering from excitement overload. There's probably words coming out of his ears and nose...he has so much to say. You can picture him typing away with a crazed smile on his face.

No, who you should be worried about on this site is

I read his stuff …and my hand starts pulling me away …dragging me to the kitchen… going for the knife …don’t do it I scream …I’ll skip his posts in future!!!!! Plzzzz I want to liveeeeeeee! ;o)

Fichtner is a step in the right direction

This dude immediately makes anything he is in watchable...one of the most underrated actors working in film today. Shredder doesn't seem right, maybe he is doing the voice and motion capture for Splinter? He has the voice for it but it would be a shame to cast such a good actor and then hide him behind a CGI character...love the casting...still not really excited about the film but I will hold out hope until I see a trailer

Wow, The_Soloist, you draw so much hate. You don't even say that you are interested in the film, even specifically stating that this casting choice is the only thing you like, and you get accused of "jumping on a bandwagon." Then you express your opinion on Fichtner, a talented actor (who, by the way, was amazing in Wrong), and you apparently are told that opinion is wrong too. How did you manage to get this stigma attached to you, and is it contagious? Because I don't want to draw the same

@brokendreamer

Does thumbs up/down really mean anything when the day is through? What's the point of stating your opinion if all you're looking for is the majority of people to agree with you or give you the thumbs up? Not really stating your opinion anymore if you ask me. You're just trying to please online fans.

I'll admit I disagree with Soloist a majority of the time (say about 99%), hell I've even gone as far as to say his opinion doesn't matter to me anymore, which was shrewd of

I'll admit I disagree with Soloist a majority of the time (say about 99%), hell I've even gone as far as to say his opinion doesn't matter to me anymore, which was shrewd of me and I apologize to soloist for it. But he does bring up some great points every now and then. He's a fanboy, just like a.kavangh, brokendreamer, and myself. I have friends just like him that jump on and off a film because of certain aspects, so what? To some there are certain things to a film that can make or break it.

As for the bandwagon jumping, who the fuck cares?! We're movie fans, we're all bandwagon jumpers. If you don't think you are, then you're full of shit. As movie fans it's next to a guarantee that we've all been proven wrong on movies before.

Not one shred of completed footage has come out from this movie and already a bunch of people are saying it's going to be an abomination to the TMNT franchise, which could happen, or it could very well be the best TMNT movie to come out since the first live action movie. A long shot, but possible none the less. I'm holding off on my opinion of this movie until i see a trailer at least, as for now, it's a fucking new TMNT movie, live action none the less, happy it's even happening.

Hes got to be either Shredder or Casey. He's too old for Casey, but I think I'd rather see him as Casey than Shredder. Theres not many other options. Stockman? Krang? Slash? Not sure they are iconic enough. He'd make a good Rat King

Though It May Be Shredder....

I'm going to guess Casey Jones or Baxter Stockman just to make this interesting.

My First Thought

"Holy shit, he's playing Shredder!"
This just got interesting. This production is starting to grow on me.

From zero interest to 100% interest due to Mr. Fichtner. I don't care if he's Shredder or even Krang. I'm just happy he's in the movie.
