Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Reboot Casts Leonardo, Michelangelo, And Donatello

It looks as if the new big screen version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have their titular team assembled. Duel katana-cutter and all-around good Samaritan, Leonardo will be played Pete Ploszek, nunchucking Jeff Spicoli-speaking "party dude," Michelangelo will be played by Noel Fisher, and the tech-savvy bo-staff-swinger, Donatello will be played by Jeremy Howard

This rounding out of primary protagonists for the live-action reboot comes just a few days after the announcement that Blue Mountain State and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star, Alan Ritchson would be playing the sai-sporting wiseguy of the group, Raphael. Now, "the world's most fearsome fighting team" are ready to tackle whatever villainous forces that creative minds like producer, Michael Bay and director, Jonathan Liebesman have on deck. -- Even if they're planning to make the foursome into aliens for this movie.

Pete Ploszek, who plays team leader, Leonardo, will, ironically enough, be coming in with the slimmest resume of the bunch, with one-time appearances on Parks and Recreation and Shameless being his only major roles. On the other hand, Noel Fisher, who plays the capricious and sometimes naive Michelangelo is a face that will likely be recognized by most people for something from his vast resume of TV appearances (he also had a run on Shameless), as well as his recent film roles on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 and in director, Liebesman's Battle Los Angeles. Jeremy Howard playing the geeky reptilian, Donatello may also trigger some recognition from his various "nerdy" roles like in college romp, Accepted, on TV with Breaking Bad, and as one of Justin Long's quasi-Trekkie buddies in the cult classic, Galaxy Quest.

Now, this trio, along with Alan Ritchson, join the newly-reconciled princess of the Michael Bay universe, Megan Fox for this ambitious and highly-touted tent-pole project, which has apparently nabbed a $125 million budget commitment.

Ninja Turtles (title not yet confirmed) picks out the tightest banana-yellow jumpsuits for Megan Fox to wear as April O'Neil when it hits theaters on June 6, 2014.
