'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Star Alan Ritchson Defends New Movie

Alan Ritchson, who is probably best known for his role in TV's Blue Mountain State, will be playing Raphael in the new Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  What's interesting is that in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter at the MTV Movie Awards, Ritchson defends the new movie by stating that most of what we've heard online is false -- and that there isn't anything to worry about with the new flick.

The facts we know: Megan Fox is April O'Neil.  Are the turtles still from an "alien race"?  That came from Bay's mouth, himself, so who knows.  What I do know is that I am very eager for this reboot.  I even started rewatching Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation on Netflix if that says anything.
