Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Casts William Fichtner

William Fichtner in The Dark Knight

William Fichtner, the Go and The Dark Knight star who will play Butch Cavendish in this summer's adaptation of The Lone Ranger from Walt Disney Pictures, has signed on to play an as-yet-unspecified role in Jonathan Liebesman's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Deadline reports, "Details on the actor’s role are sketchy but Fichtner is said to be playing a lead with iconic stature in the Turtles mythology."

Expect more details on that in the coming weeks; there will likely be quite a lot of speculation as to whether Fichtner is playing Casey Jones, Shredder or Splinter in the film, all of which roles are currently open.
