Live Action ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Movie Casts Ploszek, Fisher And Howard

Following Friday’s sewer-rattling news that Smallville‘s Aquaman is poised to be the new Raphael in the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (which is tentatively titled just Ninja Turtles), Paramount has revealed the names of the other three turtle actors (from left, above): Pete Ploszek will be Leonardo, Noel Fisher will be Michelangelo and Jeremy Howard will play Donatello.

Only one of them has portrayed a comics character on TV, as Fisher was the voice of Toad on X-Men: Evolution. However, their photos do reassure fans they’ll do amazing jobs of smirking to varying degrees in the motion-captured film set for release next year.

Ploszek is a relative newcomer; his two IMDb credits are guest spots on Parks and Recreation and Shameless. He should get along just fine with Fisher, who is a regular on Shameless, as well as appearing in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and the miniseries Hatfields and McCoys.

The lanky Howard has a resume full of bit parts in projects ranging from Breaking Bad and Entourage to Men in Black II and the live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Megan Fox is set to play the female lead in the new Ninja Turtles film. The studio has yet to announce who will be playing Shredder.
