William Fichtner joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

What’s the betting he plays a bad guy?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has added another big name to its human cast, with William Fichtner the latest to join Michael Bay’s forthcoming revival.

No details have yet emerged as to who Fichtner will be playing, although given his panache for scenery-chewing badassery, we’re hoping he’s snagged the role of Shredder.

It certainly sounds like that's the case, with Deadline reporting Fichtner: "is said to be playing a lead with iconic stature in the Turtles’ mythology."

Fichtner joins Megan Fox as intrepid reporter April O’Neil, and a group of relative unknowns as the four titular heroes in half-shells.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, with Bay watching on in a production capacity, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will open in the UK on 16 May 2014. Cowabunga!

      If you'd done your research properly and looked at the newly emerged set photos, TF, you'd know that Arnett is playing April O'Neil's cameraman Vernon Fenwick.

      He could be playing Shredder, or some cockney stoner pretending to be Shredder

      I see TF have removed the part about Will Arnett. Shrewdly played. As for Fitchner, I'm going to guess Agent Bishop.
