We Have Our First Ninja Turtle – Raphael Is Aquaman

Later this year, we’ll get to see what Alan Ritchson can do with daggers when he takes the role of Gloss in the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire. Already seems like he must have transferable skills with blades, though, as he’s also been cast as Raphael, the Sai-wielding one in Jonathan Liebesman’s Ninja Turtles.

Where will this typecasting end? Jack the Ripper?

Deadline remind us that the role will be played with the aid of motion capture. All, the same, here’s Ritchson’s pretty face. And body. And ball.

You may recognise him as Arthur Curry, alias Aquaman, from Smallville.

One down, three to go. Who else will Megan Fox’s April O’Neil get to chew a stuffed crust with?
