Arrow’s Stephen Amell Cast As Casey Jones In TMNT 2

When I first read that Stephen Amell has been cast as Casey Jones in TMNT 2, I had a variety of reactions: Yay, Amell’s in a movie! Wait, it’s a TMNT sequel, that might not be so good. Casey Jones, oh right, Elias Koteas played him in the original movie. Man, I had such a crush on that guy.

I’ll admit, I’ve been seesawing between the “Yay, Amell’s in a movie” and “Why can’t it be a better movie?” thing for a while now and I’m honestly on the fence.

On the plus side, they nailed the casting. He’s perfect for the part. Hopefully, that’s a sign that this franchise is headed in the right direction.

Either way, he’s excited. Check out his tweet after the break…

What do you think?
