Stephen Amell is currently beating up bad guys as the titular Arrow but that won’t stop him from donning a hockey mask and smashing dudes with a cricket (crumpet) bat in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel.

Casey Jones is a fan favorite even ranking above most of the turtles in some eyes. The character is a vigilante who hangs out with the giant turtles and is usually portrayed as having an on-again-off-again relationship with April O’Neill.
It looks like that relationship will live on as Amell’s chemistry with Megan Fox is what landed him the role.
Last summer Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fared better than expected making almost $200 million domestically.
David Green (Earth to Echo) is directing the sequel.
