While many of the characters from next summer's G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra have been seen in all of their fantastically detailed glory, one character remains absent from the public eye as of yet. And he is Cobra Commander. MTV Movie Blogs recently caught up with the actor behind the mask, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and got his take on what we can expect from this iconic bad guy.

Gordon Levitt told MTV Movie Blogs, "The cool thing about my character was that it's not that digital. I get to put hours of prosthetic makeup on and see a different creature altogether. I've seen how he looks and it's really cool."

About the voice, Joseph went on to say, "I love that voice from the cartoon. Chris Latta is a fantastic voiceover artist, but if you did that exact voice it would sound ridiculous in a live-action movie. I guess it's half Chris Latta and half me."
