We were a little confused by the lack of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ most notorious villain last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, but have no fear: the upcoming sequel is finally adding Shredder to the mix…along with BeBop, Rocksteady and Baxter Stockman. That’s a whole lot of villains, but there’s none more iconic or imposing than Shredder, who will be played by Brian Tee, one of Hugh Jackman’s co-stars in The Wolverine.

Give Tyler Perry this much: The man is unpredictable. After carving out his own extremely lucrative and popular place in the world of indie film writing and directing a series of melodramas and comedies, he’s spent more and more time in the last couple years building up his acting resume in Hollywood. He starred as the title character in the cop thriller Alex Cross, and gave a really great supporting performance as a sleazy lawyer in David Fincher’s Gone Girl. So how do you follow up that one-two punch of crime and graft? Obviously by playing a mad scientist who turns into a giant fly in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

One of the most surprising success stories of the year was the Michael Bay-produced ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ reboot, which wound up grossing $464 million worldwide. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the new, live-action take on the Turtles may have left something to be desired among critics, but audiences proved that there’s still a healthy fanbase for the enduring heroes—which is why there’s a sequel in the works. Liebesman won’t be returning, however, but Paramount has already found his replacement.
