‘Arrow’ star Stephen Amell ready for more ‘TMNT’ films

Stephen Amell has won over fast as Oliver Queen and his heroic version of Green Arrow on The CW’s Arrow, but the actor is also excited for his big-screen turn in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Amell spoke with Comicbook.com about this role as Casey Jones, saying that he’s already looking forward to the future.

“I mean, how much time do you have?” Amell said with a laugh when asked what aspects of Jones he’d like to explore in potential sequels. “We set him up in this movie as a guy who is trying to find ‘where’s my path? What should I do?’”

Amell revealed there’s actually more Casey in deleted scenes that will appear on the Blu-ray and DVD, including a scene that takes place after the final scene in the film.

“There’re so many places that we can take this character. I feel like we did a nice job of introducing him and giving people glimpses of Casey Jones, but there’s way more to do,” Amell teased.

Amell confirmed that he’s “1000%” ready to do more Jones, and in fact, he signed on for several films when he signed his contract.

“I like the fact that his heart’s probably a little bit bigger than his brain,” Amell said, again with a laugh. “He makes a lot of mistakes, but they come from a place of enthusiasm, a place of good intention, and that makes him easy to forgive. I found him to be a likable guy. You never know what it’s going to be like for a role, but I had a blast playing this character. I have an awesome time playing Oliver Queen and shooting Arrow, but, man, I had a f***ing great time playing Casey Jones.”

Fans got a sneak with the scene where Casey meets the Turtles, which is in “…every way he reacts to the Turtles is fundamentally different from anything I ever do on Arrow. Just in general, people that know me and a lot of Arrow fans that know me from the media and seeing stuff that I’ve done, know that I’m a pretty happy-go-lucky guy. Oliver Queen is actually very far from who I am, whereas Casey Jones, on the other hand, I feel a kinship to Casey Jones. I feel like there’s a lot of me in him.”

Amell stars alongside Megan Fox, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Alan Ritchson, Will Arnett, Stephen Farrelly, Gary Anthony Williams, Tyler Perry.
