Well this is certainly unsurprising news.
Co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Peter Laird, took to his blog to give his opinion about the casting of Megan Fox as April O’Neil in Michael Bay’s
version bastardization of everyone’s favorite heroes on the half shell.
“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.”
In other words, he said in the nicest way possible that Megan Fox sucks. She sucked in Transformers and she sucks so bad that he doesn’t want her in a movie where all she has to do is wear yellow and talk to fake, CGI alien, non-ninja turtle like creatures that like to blow stuff up excessively. It’s Michael Bay, you know I am right.
When asked for response, Megan Fox had this to say.
