'Ninja Turtles' Has All Its Turtles Cast

They're mean, they're green — and according to Deadline, they're almost totally anonymous, as four relative unknowns have just been cast to play Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot.

But since "Ninja Turtles" is going to be an "Avatar"-style motion capture CGI extravaganza, does it even matter who plays the turtles?

Fans of "The Hobbit's" motion capture icon Andy Serkis would, of course, argue that the people behind the animation are very important. So for those folks, here's a rundown of the turtles: Alan Ritchson (left), who will be playing Gloss in the upcoming blockbuster "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," is set to portray Raphael, while "The Twilight Saga" bit player Noel Fisher will suit up as Michelangelo. "Parks and Recreation" guest star Pete Ploszek will be Leonardo and newcomer Jeremy Howard will be playing Donatello.

The four turtles will be appearing opposite Megan Fox, who will be playing long time Turtles den mother April O'Neil. Splinter and Shredder have yet to be cast.

So what do you think? Are you going to run out and buy yourself a Pete Ploszek poster? Or is it irrelevant who is inside the CGI turtle costumes this time around? Frankly, as long as they keep our streets safe for skateboarding and eating pizza, we don't care who is on night patrol.

Turtle power!
