        wtf? Tatum/Gordon-Levitt? I don't even want to see this movie anymore. Half the cast is awesome the other is f*cking horrible.

          they need someone better to portray Duke for sure. He is way too young looking. Course i think back to how many people at first said Ledger was not going to be a good Joker...so i will keep that in mind as well. but overall i think he was a bad choice for the role

                        Hope it doesnt suck, although im sure is gonna have a pg-13 rating. It was never gonna be a serious film, but this break dancing dude just killed any chances of me watching this thing.

                          so it would seem that the focus will turn to hawk, since he is the leader of the JOE team

                              All I have to say, is that this is perfect for Dennis Quaid.

                                There really hasn't been any great actors in this movie, but now we have Dennis Quaid. He belongs in a G.I. Joe movie. And I'm not giving up on Tatum yet. If I did, all that ranting on the other page that said he was probably gonna be Duke was for nothing. heh, heh, heh

                                  Dennis Quaid is a good choice for Hawk but Channing Tatum for duke who is in charge of casting some 16 year old chick with a crush who has never seen a G.I.Joe?

                                    I am down with dennis quaid as Hawk good choice. Channing Tatum I am a little leary on I think chris evans would have been better but oh well. And I was wondering if I could get a roll possibly as Shipwreck,Flint,Gung Ho,or as the Blind master. (yeah im a dork)
