TMNT William FichtnerNow in an interview with HuffPost Canada TV, William Fichtner (Elysium, The Dark Knight Rises, Armageddon, Contact) has confirmed that he will be playing the villain, Shredder. I’ve always loved what William Fichtner does with his roles. This should be great. Here’s the excerpt.

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.
