    I think that the filmmakers found the perfect model to be Cover Girl.

    Cover Girl WAS a model so this casting makes perfect sense.

    Soooooo our last two people cast are "Where are you?" guy from Batman Begins supposedly as the main villain and Karolina who's only acting experience as near as I can tell is in a shampoo commercial where all she does is smile and flick her hair and a jeans commercial where all she does is...wait for it...wait for it...smile and flick her hair.

    Weak.

    Can't wait to see who they get for Shipwreck.

    I know. It really feels like the people behind this lost interest in quality (let along continuity) a long time ago.

    Well, the same can be said about Audrey Hepburn when she appeared in Monte Carlo Baby (meaning she had no prior acting exposure). Though I'm not expecting acting brilliance from her, everyone has to start somewhere. And in Kurkova's case, it just happens to be in G.I. Joe. Currently, we have no idea how large or complex the role is, or even of Kurkova's acting talents.

    Regarding the actor playing Destro, that is extremely unfair. Just because he made a brief appearance as an extra in a film, it is automatically assumed he won't be able to play a leading role, overlooking the fact that he is a trained and professional stage actor?

    That's definitely how I feel. People want to ignore the wealth of acting training the man has had and just focus on the fact that he's the "Where Are You?!?" guy from Batman Begins. Even so, why is that something to scoff at?

    Exactly, atleat the guys a trained actor. Half the people in hollywood are ex models or wannabe celebrities. The care about being famous first and the craft of acting a distant second.

    Hey if he makes it big he could make "where are you?" a catchphrase like Arnie's "I'll be back". Sadly enough the fact remains that outside of a comic forum nobody knows this guy.

    They have the resources to put together an ensemble cast rivalling Sin City's (ie recognizable actors) but over half their choices so far have been just bizarre, especially their last two.

    It looks and feels as if they are going as cheap as possible on the cast. Saving money for Sommer's AMAZING CGI no doubt. :cmad: :csad:

    I fail to see how this is a factor.

    300 didn't need a recognizable lead, let alone a recognizable ensemble cast, and that movie still managed to be an incredibly successful film.

    How much more bizarre is GI Joe's casting compared to Sin City? Elijah Wood as Kevin?!? Before we actually saw footage, what do you think most fans' reactions were to that casting? I'm failing to see how GI Joe's casting is bizarre. I hear a lot of people pissing and moaning about Marlon Wayans, as if he were playing some sacred fan favorite character, when in actuality, the character's a third-stringer at best. Everyone's convinced he's going to be excessively goofy, as if he's NEVER done anything where his acting had to be serious and subdued, when we know that isn't the case. Had his last movie been Requiem For A Dream, instead of Little Man, I doubt people would be complaining as much. The fact that he has done some rather stupid films, shouldn't take away from the fact that he has shined in a dramatic role that not everyone could pull off.

    As for Tatum, he's got a solid look that fits Duke, he's been building his acting resume in the past few years, I fail to see his casting as being out of left field. And everyone else looks fine to me. And we still don't know the extent of Joseph Gordon Levitt's charactere in the film, if he turns out to be Cobra Commander or not.

    I hate when people assume recognizable actors are the only way to a successful movie. Pure ignorance. This type of movie will probably be better with lesser known actors because you won't have the egos of known actors trying to steal the spotlight(ie. Halle Barry as Storm). You don't even wait for photos, you just go "oh I've never heard of him, that's terrible casting" =\

    I agree no one knew Christopher Reeves or Brandon Routh. Unless you are an incredibley well connected director with actor friends willing to take a pay cut like the ocean films you are not gonna get a cast full of A listers. We all have our dream casts but you gotta be realistic.

    Without big name actors the film won't seem as big as it did when a lot of the fans were younger.

    A solid look that fits Duke? Duke never looked like an under 30 reject from a boyband. Harsh as that may sound, it's a fact: He looks nothing like the traditional appearance of the G.I. Joe team's First Sergeant!

    The actor cast as Duke should have been someone who not only looks as if he can pass as an E-8, but someone who can portray a certain degree of experience, ruggedness and screen presence.
