Co-Creator Peter Laird talks Megan Fox as April O’Neil

March 6, 2013

Peter Laird, co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (along with Kevin Eastman), has commented on Megan Fox landing the role of April O’Neil in the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles.

“My only exposure to Megan Fox as an actress is through her role in two “Transformers” movies and the wretched (but happily forgettable) “Jennifer’s Body”. It may not be fair to judge her range of acting skills just from those three movies, but I think it is safe to say that there are probably hundreds of better choices for the role of April O’Neil. Of course, her name has promotional value, and maybe that’s what they want. Who knows? I can’t get myself too worked up about it.”

Now while I’m up for another TMNT live action movie, I’d rather Michael Bay and Megan Fox stay far away from it.
