Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot linked to anarchist group

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot linked to anarchist group
The subjects of a soon-to-be-revived multi-million-dollar merchandising franchise are, it turns out, fervent anti-capitalists looking to bring down society from within. And eat pizza.
Discussing Nickelodeon's forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot with EW.com, Executive Producer Ciro Neili revealed the cast members as follows.

Each turtle still plays a particular role: Leonardo (Jason Biggs) is "the leader", Donatello (Rob Paulsen, who originally voiced Raphael in the 1987-96 series) is "the brains", Raphael (Sean Astin) is "the muscle", and Michelangelo (Greg Cipes) is "the wild one".

It's like a band. You want a Beatles thing.
Leaving aside for the moment the fact that I've just heard the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles compared to the Beatles, which means there is no future for us as a species and we might just as well all build a spaceship, cram every man, woman and child on board and fly it into the sun, I couldn't help but make the following observation.

Ignoring the first and second rules of the shadowy organisation he represents, Raphael's voice artist Sean Astin enthused:

I'm excited because there are four turtles. There were four hobbits. I love the idea that somehow guys in four can make a change in the world, make a difference.
I would argue that he's taken something of a logical leap here. There are also four members of JLS.

Now I need to listen to all the Beatles albums again to make up for the blasphemy done just there. Somehow that ordeal has a happy ending. Yay Beatles!
