Megan Fox on April O’Neil’s love connection with Michelangelo in the new TMNT movie

MichelangeloRecently we got a chance to sit down with the cast and the crew behind the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. After seeing the film, we had a lot of questions for the team that had brought the franchise to life. One being what is the deal with April O’Niel’s love triangle with Michelangelo and Vernon Fenwick (Will Arrnett). Many may not know, but when Megan Fox was much younger she had a childhood crush on Michelangelo. Mike and April share the most on-screen time together out of all the turtles. We got a chance to ask Megan what it was like to work with most outlandish turtle of the group.

During shooting we kind of played around with that. There was a Raphael/April connection and it turned into Michelangelo. I think that is just totally up his alley. He’s always sorta been girl crazy, Mikey. I am happy it turned out the way it did, but also Noel, who plays him is really a talented actor. He kind of steals the movie. In my opinion it’s Mikey’s movie.

Mikey is not the only person prying for April’s attention. Michelangelo has some competition in Will Arrnett’s character, Vernon Fenwick.

 It’s pretty early on in the movie that Vern sorta makes his lame attempt at romancing April and he gives up on it quite quickly, and then Mikey moves in there. It’s hard to compete with a….turtle.

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently in theaters everywhere.
