Default Gi Joe

I just read at IESB that Mark Whalberg is going to play Duke in the GI Joe movie, good news. Now they have to get Vin Diesel to play Destro and Angelina Joelie to play the Baroness!

He is one of the few actors in Hollywood who could pull off a silent role well.

G.I. Joe Gearing Up For Deployment
And who does the producer want to play Duke?
by Stax

US, March 5, 2007 - Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura revealed during this past weekend's press junket for his new film Shooter that the long-in-development, live-action movie version of G.I. Joe will be his next project after Transformers.

Di Bonaventura also informed IESB.net of the star he has in mind for the lead role of Duke, the Joes' second-in-command and leader in the field: none other than Shooter star Mark Wahlberg.

Wahlberg and di Bonaventura also teamed up for Four Brothers. The screenwriters of that film -- David Elliot and Paul Lovett -- have also penned a draft of the Joe script.

IESB later asked Wahlberg if he'd be willing to star in G.I. Joe and the Oscar nominee expressed interest.

"You know what, I'll do whatever Lorenzo wants me to do; it really depends on the script, obviously, but it's a cool idea. He says it's going to be kick ass, so yeah," Wahlberg said. "But he's already putting that out there, so who knows. He knows how to get me to say 'yes.'"

The site also claims that the film's plot will follow the rise of Cobra Commander before the formation of Cobra Command.

Steve Austin could play Gung-Ho. I don't think this movie should be too hard to cast. But of course they'll do it wrong.

Except this isn't just a silent role, it's a faceless role; meaning you don't pay actors of his caliber (thus wasting your money) to have him play that part. Furthermore, while I like Joaquine Phoenix, he is neither a martial artist nor a stunt man which is far more important to the role than his ability to act. Ray Park (Darth Maul) has already proved himself quiet capable of a silent role and is a stunt man. You don't need to look much further than that.

Yeah, Ray Park as Snake Eyes is pretty much a given. That guy would be a geek god. Hell, he already has Star Wars and X-fans, now if he added G.I. Joe to the list?! He'd be the most popular guy on the convention floor.
I never pictured Whalberg as Duke but he's not a bad choice I guess. I just don't know if he comes off as authoratative enough to be a commander.

If he plays Duke akin to his role in The Departed, then I can see it. Obviously it would be a much different Duke than the one seen in the 80's cartoon and the Marvel comics, but I don't think he would be a particular bad choice.

Ray Park as Snake Eyes?

So here is what we have/want so far:

DUKE: Mark Wahlberg (NAY)
I agree with co2. I was having trouble picturing him as Duke but didn't know why. He hit the nail on the head, I can't picture him in an authoritive role either. I'd have know problem with him in the movie, it would kind of work, just not as Duke. Plus he is only 5'7", I always pictured Duke as closer to 6'0"

SNAKE EYES: JOAQUIN PHOENIX/RAY PARK(NAY/NAY)
ShadowBoxing is right, if Snake Eyes remains under the mask Joaquin is a stupid choice. I kind of felt he would be unmasked in a live movie. Don't be surprised if he does go maskless. True Joaquin is not a martial arts guy but how into martial arts was Keanu Reeves before 'The Matrix' or Wesley Snipes before 'Blade?'

Ray Park is a viable option but I would explore some others first. Plus, he may feel if he does this he is going to be permanently type cast in comic book type movies. No actor wants that.

GUNG HO: STEVE AUSTIN(YAY)
Uh... that one right on the money. Gung Ho was the one character I coudn't cast in my personal casting choices. The best I could come up with was a buffed up Will Farrell. The problem is that I think he may have a contract with WWE Films.

If they can't get anyone else of quality then go ahead. But I happen to think Powers Boothe is the perfect choice.

I'm telling ya, Tony Jaa should play Snake Eyes! I don't think he speaks much english but that's okay, since Snake Eyes is mute anyway. He kicked so much @$$ in The Protector, imagine him doing all that with a Ninja sword!

Ray Park wouldn't be bad either.

Hugely. Both were about third degree black belts in martial arts, Snipes, for example, had been taking Kung Fu since he was like 8 or 9.

It wouldn't be wasting your money to get a talanted actor. You need a talanted actor to pull Snake-Eyes off. It takes a truely supurb actor to play a part without speaking and without showing your face well.

No you wouldn't. You may think it's incredibly important and necessary but it isn't. All he has to do is stand there and act stoic, be bada$$ when the script calls for it...not a meaty role.

EXACTLY. Which is why I say Joaquin Phoenix. Further, we all know there is going to be 'alteration' to GI Joe in a movie. Why not have Snake Eyes without his mask in non action/combt scenes? That is honestly how it should be. You really think a guy(SNake Eyes) who is in the most elite special forces unit in the world is shy about showing his face to his comrades??? And uh... he can't wear the mask 24/7.

Joaquine Phoenix has no martial arts training to my knowledge. That's the main reason why an actor like Tony Jaa or Ray Park would be vastly preferable to me. Also, I don't think Joaquine Phoenix has the kind of look I'd want for Snake Eyes.

How about KEANU REEVES as Snake Eyes. He was one of my choices prior to Phoenix.
