PDF Print E-mail Written by Robert Sanchez Monday, 11 February 2008 The IESB has received breaking news, a last minute change has been made to the G.I. Joe cast - Who to play Destro. A devastating blow has been dealt to David Murray, the actor set to star as Destro in the new G.I. Joe film. Seems he had unforeseen problems getting into the United States and wasn't able to get a work VISA in time for the film's start date of Wednesday February 13th. Studio sources say Murray is a phenomenal actor with a great body of work and are disheartened that he was unable to get his immigration issues in order before the film was set to start shooting. Well, although the higher ups were dismayed that Murray would not be able to play the role, what's a studio to do other than re-cast? The actor will no longer be in the film, instead they have given the role of Destro to Chris Eccleston. Eccleston, a British actor, is most known for his stint as Dr. Who for one season and his role as Claude aka The Invisible Man on the hit NBC TV series Heroes. He also had a villainous role in Fox/Walden's The Seeker as the Rider.
