Every Actor Who Has Played Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Casey (Movies & TV) – Screen Rant Leave a comment

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vigilante and ally Casey Jones has been played by seven different actors throughout the franchise’s movies and TV shows.
Here’s every actor that has played Casey Jones in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies and TV shows. The character of Casey Jones is the brainchild of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird and made his debut in a 1985 issue of the original Mirage comic book series. Like the titular Turtles, Casey is a vigilante (albeit a human one) dedicated to protecting the streets of New York from unsavory characters and is usually seen sporting a hockey mask and wielding sports equipment – like baseball bats or tennis rackets – as weapons.
There have been many different versions of Casey Jones in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, shows and movies since his debut – from a hot-tempered Dirty Harry-type to a high school student and a wannabe detective – but he’s been a constant ally to the half-shell heroes over the years. He’s often portrayed as a particularly close friend of Raphael and has been romantically linked with April O’Neil several times throughout the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

A total of seven different actors have played Casey Jones throughout the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise so far. Read on to find out exactly who has brought the vigilante to life onscreen.
Pat Fraley voiced Casey Jones in the first animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series that originally aired between 1987 and 1996. The first live-action version of Casey, however, was played by Elias Koteas and his take on the character is considered by many fans as the best. Arrow star Stephen Amell also played a live-action Casey in the 2016 reboot sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
Captain America actor Chris Evans also voiced Casey in the 2007 animated film TMNT which was directed by Kevin Munroe and co-starred Sarah Michelle Gellar and Patrick Stewart. The most recent onscreen version of the character appeared in Nickelodeon’s animated reboot Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and was voiced by Zelda Williams who played a gender-swapped take on Casey called Cassandra Jones.
Chances are franchise fans could be seeing Casey onscreen again soon as there are not one, not two but three new movies currently in the works. One is an animated feature based on Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and is set to premiere on Netflix in 2022, while another is a new live-action reboot being penned by brothers Casey and Colin Jost and co-produced by Michael Bay. Seth Rogen is also producing an animated reboot that’s helmed by The Mitchells Vs The Machines co-director Jeff Rowe and slated for a 2023 release. Fingers crossed Casey Jones appears in at least one of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies.
