Now I have at least a little reason to care about Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. We previously reported that Fichtner had joined the film, and was playing a character “with iconic stature in the Turtles’ mythology.” The assumption was that he would be playing Shredder, and now Fichtner has confirmed that he has taken on the part of the Turtles’ longtime nemesis. Speaking to Huffpost TV Canada [via JoBlo], Fichtner said, “I play Shredder. It is cool. It’s one of those things that came along where I thought, ‘Really? Let me think about this for a minute.’ [Laughs] Then I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, this sounds like a journey.’ I’m very glad that it worked out, I’m really glad that I’m doing it.” Fichtner may not be a household name, but he’s a great addition to any movie, and I’m interested to see what he’ll do with the role.
