Megan Fox Shows Off Red Hair for ‘Ninja Turtles’ Role

The actress is said to be playing the Turtles’ reporter pal April O’Neil in this upcoming reboot of the franchise, but that has not been confirmed.

Ninja Turtles officially started shooting in Jones Beach State Park in Wantagh, New York this past week, and while no spy photos have leaked from the set just yet, new images of Megan Fox arriving at the airport have revealed that the actress dyed her hair red for the role. It's being widely reported that the actress is playing April O'Neil, friend to the Turtles and a TV news reporter who also has a background in robotics. This has yet to be confirmed by producer Michael Bay or the studio, but the change in hair color seems to indicate that she is playing this fan-favorite character. What do you think? Will she prove to be a great April O'Neil once she dons that signature yellow jumpsuit? Or do you think she's been miscast? And if she's not playing April, then who is she playing?

By request, these photos have been removed.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released August 8th, 2014 and stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Johnny Knoxville, Jeremy Howard. The film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

    The producers don't understand, shes not a red head, it doesn't work, she was great in Transformers. They need get a real read head, with a shapely figure. Or if possible use a real reporter like Jenna Lee on Fox news, who's a real red head.

    Having watched Evil Dead last night, I'm astonished she beat out Jane Levy, who I now love.

    not really caring for the choice. This film has failed even before it started. Everything is wrong about it.

    @lets go bub
    Get her acting chops up? Really dude she is playing April o' Neil not queen Elizabeth...April o' Neil a character that's nothing but a Lois lane parody. She is not a strong character that could take care of herself like Lois could she is nothing more than a damsel in distress that was eye candy for the turtles. Up until the newer cartoon series was when they decided to make her a smart computer person.

    She looks decent, but let's just hope she did the smart thing and got her acting chops up for the film.

    Everyone who's been doubting this movie will feel like a bag of ape crap if its good. If you like Mbay as a director then you'd expect his team to create a movie similar to his. Casting for the turtles should t be an issue because they'll be in cgi. Um thinking that Megan Fox isn't a good April is retarded. Who were the first April O'Neils before and after the orginal Ninja Turtles movies. Oh and storyline for the film shouldnt be an issue neither. They gave it more depth if the turtles are from outer space. The original creator of Ninja Turtles vouched for this film, so thats two thumbs up.

    @Samuel-Perez-Garca Christina Hendricks is actually a natural blonde; she dyes her hair red.

    Im sure she'll do just fine as april. But i would of casted an unknown actress to play the part not a A listerd. And by that i mean not some1 we already know but more like an "up and coming" star. who we bearly know. Either way megan will be ok. too. lets just hope she dosnt ditch us after TMNT because then it will be kinda sh*tty to have to replace her yet again. like in transformers3.
