Raphael is cast in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie!

Alan Ritchson as Aquaman on Smallville.
Paramount has just released the casting for the first Ninja Turtle in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film that is being directed by Jonathan Liebesman. 28 year old actor, Alan Ritchson, will be stepping into the role of Raphael!

Fans may recognize Ritchson from his role on Smallville as Aquaman and his upcoming role as "Gloss, the deadly dagger-wielding male tribute from District One in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Since this is a live action/CGI film the Turtles are being shot using motion capture similar to how Avatar was shot. So although Ritchson will be doing all the movements for Raphael, it'll be his voice that we really "see" in the movie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to be released on May 16, 2014.
