More From William Fichtner On Playing 'Shredder' In TMNT; Confirms NO Bebop & Rocksteady

While talking to The Hollywood News about his new series Crossing Lines, the Lone Ranger actor reveals a bit more about another villainous role he has coming up: iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles baddie, Shredder.



William Fichtner has spoken about his role in the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot in the past, but was always careful not to reveal too much about this take on 'Shredder'. Now while talking to THN, the actor confirms that this version of the character will indeed go by the name 'Eric Sachs', and we are in for a very different take on the Oroku Saki we all know from the comic and animated series. "What I read about Eric Sachs in the script was great, and then how the character has been molded and changed when we started filming has become something really quite remarkable in terms of what we’ve seen before of the character." Fichtner also comments on the Turtles themselves, saying that they're “some messed up mutant turtles!”. And finally, he confirms to the site that Shredder's two not-so-bright henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady will not be a part of the movie. Are you disappointed by this or was that to be expected?
