‘Ninja Turtles 2’ Gets Tyler Perry as Dr. Baxter Stockman

‘Ninja Turtles 2’ Gets Tyler Perry as Dr. Baxter Stockman

With production set to begin later this month in New York, Paramount's action sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has brought on actor Tyler Perry to play Baxter Stockman. In the original comic books, Baxter Stockman was a scientist who created robots known as the Mousers, which were designed to kill sewer rats. The villainous Shredder eventually learned about these devices, and hired Stockman to modify his robots to eliminate the Turtles' mentor Splinter.

It isn't known how Stockman will be used in this sequel, especially since it hasn't been confirmed if Shredder will be back yet. The character went through many different transformations in the comic book and cartoon. At one point, he became a major villain who had used technology from DARPA to place his brain in a robot body, making him a cyborg. At another point, he became cross-mutated with a common house fly, and turned into a giant, humanoid fly-creature. The character actually appeared as one of Eric Sacks' scientists in last year's franchise reboot. At that time, he was played by K. Todd Freeman.
