Alan Ritchson Cast As Raphael In Paramount’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

Friday 22nd March 2013 by Shawn Madden

Casting is currently on Paramount and Platinum Dunes upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not long ago we had learned that Megan Fox has joined the cast of the Jonathon Liebesman directed live-action/CGI reboot of the franchise as April O’Neil and now they’ve begun casting the film’s turtles. Alan Ritchson, who will be appearing in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, has been cast as the film’s Raphael.


Unlike the original film series, which saw actors in bulky suits, we’ll see the turtles brought to life via motion capture technology. Filming is set to begin next month, so we should expect to hear about the rest of the cast very soon.
