It's obviously an April Fools joke, especially since the director has heavily implied the turtles will be CGI (so if anything, the actor would be motion capture and/or voice). But regardless, it's an April Fools spoof.

And honesty, the dude has some insane talent with a bo staff.

(Why do you know this, k4tz?)

I swear I don't like Twilight! I've never even seen it! But during his SNL intro he absolutely impressed me when he busted out some moves. I can't find that video, otherwise I'd post that one.

April Fools. Gotta be. He is pretty damn good with a staff though, but no, no Donnie for him.

@BlackArmor: Having garbage roles doesn't mean he abruptly lost / forgot all of his martial arts abilities. As I already said, I became aware of his technique talent when he hosted SNL, which I believe was in 2011 or 2010. I don't recall the exact year.

It's an April fools joke. Read the last line of the article.

Honestly, after watching that video of him showing off his bo staff skills I wouldn't mind him playing Donatello, only as a motion caption actor.

@cattlebattle: @BiteMe-Fanboy: @k4tzm4n: To be honest, for all the video i have seen Lautner, is more a Mike that a Donnie.

Also, he is a good casting choice, if you are going to the he is only a motion capture actor.

So far i would cast Scott Adkins as Donnie, Micheal Jai White for Rap, Taylor for Mike and Mark Dacascos for Leo.

And Marko Zaror for Shredder, because the guy is huge, kicks and punch like a demon and is faster, stronger and more bad ass that all the other huge guys.
