We’ve known for a while that Bebop and Rocksteady were going to make their movie debut in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and now, one of the duo has been cast.

Yes Bebop will be played by Star Wars: The Clone Wars and The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes voice actor Gary Anthony Williams and will “start off as a punk street thug member of a ragtag gang of misfits who acts as if he’s intellectually superior, but isn’t.”

He posted on his Facebook page: “Okey Doke! Finally I can say something! Super-Duper happy to be doing this movie! Can’t wait to whoop some teenage turtle butt! Also, NY friends, I’ll be in and out of your city a lot. Please make sure to buy me fancy drinks and delicious vegan food. But please don’t look me in the eyes. I’m real Diva-like.”

No word yet on Rocksteady’s casting.

Megan Fox stars alongside Will Arnet, William Fichtner, Eric Sacks and newcomers Tyler Perry, Brian Tee, Stephen Amell and Laura Linney.

TMNT 2 will be directed by David Green and is set for release on June 3rd, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
