According to The Hollywood Reporter, Linney will star in the sequel to the recently-rebooted "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" series in an undisclosed role. The actress has favored dramatic and awards-baiting fare in the past (she's a three-time Oscar nominee, and Golden Globe and Emmy winner for her work on Showtime dramedy "The Big C"), so her addition to the big-budget, effects-heavy, kid-friendly franchise is certainly a bit of a headscratcher; we'll be interested to see just who she's playing once more details are revealed.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" is due in theaters on June 3, 2016.
