Carmelo Anthony will have a cameo in the Ninja Turtles sequel

Thursday May 7th, 2015

Add Carmelo Anthony to the roster of NBA players who will appear in next summer's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel.

Anthony was spotted on the film's set in Brooklyn on Wednesday, the sixth NBA player to film a scene. DeAndre Jordan, Austin Rivers, Matt Barnes, J.J. Redick and Spencer Hawes already filmed their scenes last month.

Redick accidentally revealed in an interview with Grantland's Zach Lowe that the movie will be called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell

It isn't clear what sort of role Anthony is going to have, but he looked pretty sharp in a nicely tailored suit.

Melo isn't a stranger to acting. He had a brief appearance in the FX series Sons of Anarchy and also had roles in two episodes of Nurse Jackie

Don't expect to see Melo dunking in the movie. He's still recovering from the knee surgery that ended his season.
