‘TMNT 2’ adds Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop

Bebop and Rocksteady were rumored to be joining the cast or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, and now one-half of the idiot duo has finally been set. Gary Anthony Williams will play Bebop, a mutated warthog who serves as one of Shredder’s henchmen.

Deadline reported the news with the description of “a punk street thug member of a ragtag gang of misfits who acts as if he’s intellectually superior, but isn’t.”

four-new-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-character-posters-leonardoBebop and his partner in crime Rocksteady were initially planned to appear in the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. There was even concept art leaked for fans, so it’s easy to see what TMNT 2 may have in store for fans.

Rumor has it Myles Humphus could play Rocksteady, but even Deadline didn’t include that hint.

Williams is known for his appearances on Malcolm in the Middle and Boston Legal, and for voicing Uncle Ruckus on Cartoon Network’s The Boondocks.

His movie roles include The InternshipHarold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and Undercover Brother.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 stars Megan Fox as April O’Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman, and Brian Tee as Shredder. David Green is directing from a script by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. Michael Bay is producing along with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.

Shooting on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is underway now. Paramount will release the action sequel on June 3, 2016.
