"I play Shredder," Fichtner revealed, adding: "It is cool!"

He went on to say: "It's one of those things that came along where I thought, 'Really? Let me think about this for a minute'.

"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 will star opposite Megan Fox as April O'Neil and Will Arnett as April's cameraman Vernon Fenwick in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Alan Ritchson have been cast as the four Ninja Turtles.
