This all but confirms Fitchner for Shredder, which, doesn't bother me.

Fitchner confirmed in an interview he is The Shredder.

This news really helps to offset the Fitchner news. Love me some Mos Def.

Mos Def is a great actor and is pretty much perfect for this kind of role. He pretty much played a nerdy, tech-y kind of character in The Italian Job, so I have no doubt he can pull this off.

I liked Hitchhikers Guide so I'm pretty much ok with this casting. Should be interesting to see.

So far one of the few good decisions.

This is the the best decision the studio has made thus far.

This turns out to be fake.

It's from a site that posts news "Geeks wants".

Mos Def is a good actor, so its more of a loss than a gain. But whatever.

Be the ignorant troll you are so very hard trying to be.

I'm not ignorant, nor a troll. I have seen the man once on TV, and that was enough.

Somehow he ended up on the same show as Christopher Hitchens and Salman Rushdie and made a complete fool of himself. It was painful to watch.

Well as someone who has seen much of his work, I can tell you without that he is a very talented actor.

You don't have to take my word for it but I don't think you should judge of one random performance of his you saw one day while watching tv.

If you would watch the episode (it was Bill Maher's show), or even the clips (you can find them on youtube easily enough, one has over half a million views), you might understand my serious doubts about him playing a scientific genius.

But perhaps he really is a masterful actor, I admit I have never seen him in anything.

He wasn't even acting on that.

He was.... HIMSELF.

That was a freaking interview for crying out loud.

You are being ridiculous.

A roundtable, actually. Just watch it.

I think then you'll understand my point of view.

Though if he isn't playing Baxter Stockman, then I have no idea why we're having this conversation.

I did watch it. and no, I don't.

You can't judge someone's acting talent based how they are in real life.

Alright, I'll admit, I'm curious now. I'll see what he's been in and watch something.

At least they got Baxter's ethnicity right. Unless William as Shredder is a bait and switch.

No....Mos Def isn't just any 'rapper turned actor'. He's probably one of the shinning example on how to do that transition right. He's a gifted artist.
