Brian Tee will play the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles villain Shredder in the next installment of producer Michael Bay’s reboot, Variety reports.

Tee will be replacing Tohoru Masamune, who played Shredder in the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Megan Fox returns as the Turtles’ good friend April O’Neil, alongside Will Arnett, who plays Vern Fenwick, a coworker who fancies April. As for first-timers, Stephen Amell will portray Casey Jones, a hockey mask-donning human vigilante, while Tyler Perry will play scientist Baxter Stockman.

Variety notes that Tee is no stranger to popular franchises, as his credits include The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Mortal Kombat: Legacy. He’s set for a busy 2015, as he’ll be appearing in Jurassic World as Takashi Hamada, and he recently finished filming a NBC drama pilot for Love Is a 4 Letter Word. Tee also recently appeared alongside Diddy and Lee Byung-hun in a Funny or Die parody trailer for Rush Hour 4 / Face-Off 2.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is slated to hit theaters on June 3, 2016.
