Hunger Games Star Joins Ninja Turtles Cast

Hunger Games Catching Fire star Alan Ritchson will reportedly play one of the Ninja Tutles in the new film version directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay.

Joining the previously confirmed Megan Fox, Ritchson will apparently be playing sai wielding CGI turtle Raphael. For those unfamiliar with the genius of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or struggling to remember their long lost childhoods, Raphael was the wisecracking one in the red bandanna.

Ritchson will motion capture the part, leading to inevitably disappointing leaked set photos of four men in blue spotted unitards fighting ninjas. It’s presumed he’ll also be providing the voice of the character. Assuming Michael Bay doesn’t decide to entirely replace dialogue with 2hrs of deafening explosions.
