Alessandra Ambrosio

If you saw the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last year and thought that it needed more supermodels, then you are in luck. THR reports that Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is taking a role in the forthcoming sequel from Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes. I can't help but think that this is Michael Bay's doing as one of the producers of the new franchise, especially since the director gave another Victoria's Secret model, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, her big screen debut in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Megan Fox is already playing April O'Neil, so who is Ambrosio playing?

Ambrosio will be playing a new love interest for Will Arnett, which doesn't seem insanely far-fetched for Arnett in real life, but for his cameraman character Vernon Fenwick, it's a bit of a stretch. Apparently Ambrosio and Arnett were recently photographed kissing at a New York Knicks game a couple days ago, but that was actually for a scene in the movie. Dave Green (Earth to Echo) is directing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 with a script from Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol). Rumors have pegged villains Rocksteady and Beebop as being involved this time, and there have been rumblings of other iconic characters coming into play so stay tuned for more.

Because we all know how well casting models in a movie worked for the Transformer movies

I enjoyed it. That's right, I said it. I had low expectations, and decided to redbox it. It was entertaining. Not great, certainly not without some stupid shit, but I dug it. Still, I'll probably redbox the sequel.
