So apparently all of those Karate classes you’ve been taking down at the local community center may actually pay off. No, they’re not going to get you a girlfriend or a sweet Lamborghini or respect from your peers, but they might get you a part in the new live-action adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Mirage Studios, 4Kids Entertainment, and TMNT Productions, the companies responsible for the bringing the turtles to life in the 21st Century, have opened up casting of the flick to the general public. That means that if you’re in the Hollywood area this Saturday morning, you can stroll down Hollywood & Highland to show off your super sweet black belt moves for a possible part as a foot soldier or something of that nature.

Full details for the casting call (courtesy of AICN) can be seen below. Nunchucks will not be provided (but don’t bring them because they’re not allowed)!
