Arrow star Stephen Amell is swapping out his hood and arrows for a goalie mask and hockey stick as the actor has landed the role of Casey Jones in the upcoming sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
One of six actors who auditioned for the part, it was Amell's chemistry with Megan Fox that led to the studio awarding him the role.
A loner who becomes an ally of the turtles and a love interest for O’Neil, Jones is a fan favorite of the series going back to when Elias Koteas played him in the 1990 New Line pic.
Amell joins returning stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett. David Green is directing the sequel with Michael Bay producing along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
