Biz Break: Ladies and Gentlemen, Here Are Your 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Motion captures suits are funny things. I thought Andy Serkis looked pretty badass in his gear for Lord of the Rings and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Then you have Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, and Pete Ploszek running around dressed up like fat surfboards.
Don't worry though, you guys. Michael Bay will surely use the same care and precision in rendering the Turtles that he did with the Transformers characters. Like making sure they are all recognizable as specific characters and giving Donatello some huge, swinging balls or something. It'll be fine.
Also of note is the casting of William Fichtner in the movie. He is said to be playing a character with deep ties to the TMNT mythology. He isn't Splinter, Shredder doesn't seem to have been cast as of yet, and Casey Jones isn't in the mix on IMDB either. I doubt Fichtner would be Casy Jones, macking on Megan Fox's April. Krang? OOOOOH! OOOOH! He plays the ooze that makes them into mutants! (Nailed it.)
Let's finish strong with something to clean the vomit from the insides of your mouth. Here is James McAvoy looking deliciously 70s in X-Men: Days of Future Past. He's still got hair. Awww yisss.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
