The New TMNT Movie Has Found Its Shredder

In an interview with the Huffington Post, character actor William Fichtner revealed that he’ll be playing Shredder in Michael Bay’s new Ninja Turtle film.According to interviewer Denette Wilford, Fichtner had the following to say:

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.

If you’re not familiar with William Fichtner by name, you surely know his face. One of the more prolific “that guys” in Hollywood, Fichtner is most commonly known for playing “Creepy Bank Manager” in The Dark Knight, “Creepy Astronaut” in Armageddon, and “Creepy Deep Sea Fisherman” in The Perfect Storm.
