Stephen Amell is reportedly trading in his bow for a hockey stick.

According to Variety Arrow's Stephen Amell has been cast as play Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. An outsider who befriends and allies with the Ninja Turtles, Jones is a staple in Ninja Turtles’ supporting cast. He has also served as a romantic interest for reporter April O'Neil. 

And according to the report, Amell was one of six actors who auditioned for the role this past weekend. But as Variety reports, Amell's chemistry with the studio Paramount Pictures landed him the gig.

But just to say for the record Paramount Pictures has not officially confirmed anything as of yet. But Variety is usually a trusted source.

Production on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is believed to be called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell and is set to start shortly, with Dave Green taking over directorial duties.

Amell will join cast member Megan Fox as April O'Neil and Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. Plus the voice cast for the Turtles themselves is back on board. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release on June 3rd 2016.
