When it comes to voicing opinions about all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the millions of hardcore fans – and the millions who have left it behind like old pizza crust – will never be more outspoken than the half-shelled heroes’ co-creators Peter Laird or Kevin Eastman, who have rarely been shy about letting their feelings known about current projects.

Most recently, Laird shared his thoughts about Megan Fox’s involvement with the movie, and of all places, it was on his blog Peter Laird’s TMNT Blog in response to a fan telling him about Fox’s casting. Of course, Laird is talking about some strong speculation that she'll be playing April in the film that Michael Bay is shepherding. But unless she’s going to play Donatella, or Michelleangelo, this is probably a fair piece of criticism on Laird’s part. Read his not exactly encouraging words below.

“My only exposure to Megan Fox as an actress is through her role in two Transformers movies and the wretched (but happily forgettable) Jennifer's Body. It may not be fair to judge her range of acting skills just from those three movies, but I think it is safe to say that there are probably hundreds of better choices for the role of April O'Neil. Of course, her name has promotional value, and maybe that's what they want. Who knows? I can't get myself too worked up about it.”

Maybe he hasn’t paid attention to the growing trend in April O’Neil’s wheelhouse of news reporting for hiring more and more attractive ladies, regardless of how smart they make Shia LaBeouf look.
