Stephen Amell and Megan Fox Talk Being Outcasts and Starring in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Actors Stephen Amell and Megan Fox are no strangers to the spotlight. One plays a superhero behind a mask on the CW's Arrow, and the other got her start as the go-to hot leading lady for director Michael Bay. The crime-fighter and the bombshell team up for this summer's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. And, yes, the sequel to 2014's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is also produced by Bay.

The pair were in Miami promoting the film, and New Times sat down with Fox, who plays April O'Neil, and Amell, who portrays Casey Jones. Watch our interview above as the actors dissect the universal theme of feeling like an outcast and why the Turtles will always be relevant.
