News Bits: Casting on 'TMNT', Redford for 'Winter Soldier'; Smith leaving 'Who?'

Alan+Ritchson+alan+png15Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot has cast its first turtle in the form of actor Alan Ritchson, who some might remember played Aquaman on Smallville and who will also appear as Gloss in Hunger Games: Catching Fire this November. While the actor is physically fit, his role as Raphael will have in a motion capture suit with the rest of the turtle done digitally. Megan Fox was already cast as yellow wearing jump suit reporter Dawn.

Deadline is reporting that Marvel is perusing actor Robert Redford for a recurring role in their franchise of superhero films, with Captain America: The Winter Solider being his debut role as an older S.H.I.E.L.D. guy. The idea is to have the character appear –much like Clark Gregg’s Coulson- in other Marvel films that are in the pipeline.

British newspaper The Sun is reporting that Matt Smith is due to bow out as the Doctor with the 2013 Christmas Special. While the newspaper has been known to be wrong before –they reported months ago that showrunner Steven Moffat convinced the actor to stay for season 8- they’ve also get it right from time to time. Still, consider this: Co-executive producer Caroline Skinner has now departed, Matt Smith’s current contract is up after the Christmas episode and has said he wants to work in Hollywood movies and Steven Moffat has made veiled comments about time commitment’s that both Doctor Who and Sherlock put on him. Then bake all of that with Being Human creator Toby Whithouse being rumored to be the one to take over the show in 2014 as the new showrunner. All of this does not mean a conspiracy, but with these with contracts finishing up and three years being what David Tennant did, the odds are we could see the Twelfth Doctor for season 8.
