    Is it really difficult to find a good Japanese actor to play him? A white Shredder? I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    Yeah, that's an odd one. Someone like Ken Watanabe would be a better choice, and he's been successful in Hollywood. In fact, he looks pretty much perfect for the part.

    I thought the Shredder in the first movie was great. The original live action TMNT film will probably turn out to be more faithful to the source material at this point.

    Well if they're adding in Verne from the 80's cartoon it might be closer to that

    What another disappointment in casting. Is source fidelity that hard?!!

    You know, I like William Fitchner and all but as The Shredder?! Jesus Fuck!

    I liked a video interview I saw and they asked him what lured him to the role and his basically says, "I dunno... the paycheck?"

    I'd buy Fitch as an older revision of Casey Jones but it's hard to imagine Shredder.

    Any word yet on whether Casey Jones will be in this movie? I missed seeing him in the second movie.

    Yeah, Casey Jones will be in the movie, but played by Shia LaBeouf.

    You can bet yer ass that the final film will be at least 50% like that old leaked script. You just watch, Fichtner will be "Colonel Schraeder" or whatever they called him in that.

    Yeah, that's kind of where I think they're going. Likewise, Casey Jones will be a teenage loser in much the same vein as Shia LaBeouf's Transformers character.

    Hey, it's Michael Bay, you weren't going into this expecting fine art.

    Be honest, did anyone really think a popular pizza restaurant chain wouldn't have product placement in this movie? If it weren't Pizza Hut, someone else would have volunteered.

    I hope they don't focus TOO much on Pizza. It became ridiculous on the second movie. I thought I was watching a Pizza commercial at times! :lol:

    Will Casey Jones be in this movie?
