Everybody wants to be in big damn summer blockbusters and this proves it: according to The Hollywood Reporter, three-time Oscar nominee Laura Linney is joining the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Linney will co-star with Will Arnett, Megan Fox, Tyler Perry, Stephen Amell’s abs, and four turtle ninjas.
As of right now, there is no word on what role Linney will play, but my money’s on Bebop. Or Krang. Or… you get the joke.
In all seriousness, it’s entirely possible that this could be an all new character and with someone of Linney’s talent — she of The Squid and the Whale, The Truman Show, and The Big C — expressing an interest in climbing aboard the project, the role has got to be juicy and maybe villain-y. That, or Laura Linney decided that it’s time to get PIZAYED with team Michael Bay. I’ll never speak like that again, promise.
