Default Brendan Fraser Isn't Gung-Ho

From IESB's set visit preview:

Quote:
And finally, Brendan Fraser does not play Gung-Ho or any other Joe that has been rumored thus far and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will not be in the film.

He'll probably be one of the generic vehicle drivers that nobody can remember the name of, like Lift Ticket or Tollbooth.

Tollbooth! That's gotta be the worst codename in the entire GI Joe team. That and his only role was to drive the bridge-laying truck. I guess we never saw him much in the cartoons and comics because he blew his brains out because we was so lame.

good news.

I wouldn't have minded the Rock so much to be honest, just not as Shipwreck.

Actually, no...the article just states that Fraser won't be playing Gung Ho or any other Joe mentioned thus far.

He said in an interview that he already shot his cameo. So, he's playing someone that we don't know about.

He's still in the movie.

So you mean to tell me that Brandon Frasier is going to have either some small suporting role or brief cameo? Cool!

So was he supposed to be Gung Ho in that Cameo? I was disappointed they didn't have the tat on the chest showing . I think more people would've recognized who he was supposed to be if they had showed it.

He was Sgt. Stone. The movie was influenced by Sigma 6.

Anyone else think that he should have played Flint after seeing Fraser's cameo as Sgt. Stone? He looked just like Flint.

Did you notice during the end credits they world show a name and were showing different parts of the GiJoe symbol, at one part they showed the sigma 6 symbol.

Yep! And I enjoyed Fraser's cameo, I found him funny when he kept on saying "Again?" it was cool.
