I was thinking, what with the prospect of the new live action movie, what would be the perfect cast. I have given it alot of thought (probably to much), and I can only come up with 3 actors so far.

Cobra Commander - Gary Oldman
Storm Shadow - Jet Li
Road Block - Micheal Clark Duncan

I'm really interested in hearing everyones thoughts on this.

Cool, here would be my picks:

COBRA cast:
COBRA Commander: James Woods
Destro: Sean Connery
Storm Shadow: Jackie Chan(he only played a bad guy once in a foreign film, i'd love to see him be a bad guy again)
Zartan: Vince Vaughn
Firefly: William Dafoe
Major Bludd: Jason Statham
Dr. Mindbender: the guy who played Nightcrawler from X-Men 2
Vypra: Lucy Liu
Baroness: Rebecca Roujin-Stamos
Dreadnok Ripper: The guy who played Kano from the movie Mortal Kombat
Zarana: Demi Moore

GIJOE cast:
Duke: Brad Pitt
Scarlett: Claire Forlani
Beach-Head: Tommy Lee Jones
Lady Jaye: Carrie-Anne Moss
Flint: Ben Affleck
Roadblock: Danny Glover
Heavy Duty: Laurence Fishbourne(i'm not sure if I spelled his name right)

This topic has been beaten to death, lol. But as always here goes mine:

Matrix Twins = Tomax and Xamot
Robert England = Cobra Commander
Femke Jensen = Baroness
Michael Bein = Flint
Harrison Ford = General Flagg (the father not the son)

Personally I have a beef with all the characters being well known actors but because the post is for a "Dream Cast" I'll assume that every one will work for $1

But what about a dream Director?

Dream director? ME! I gotta trilogy in my head and a script and a half on paper. Just about everyshot in my head too. I think I'd be pretty self suffcient like a one man movie maker. All I need are a few million dollars and the rights to go to work on it.

I'd be able to help with the script, as well as even come up with a few brilliant fight scenes(I watched a lot of Chinese kung-fu movies).

Alright shockwave your in because,well Shockwave is one of favorite characters. And you might have some good ideas for the Firefly, Storm Shadow, Snake-Eyes fights.

Funny, we were just talking about me wanting to go to film school specifically to make a GI Joe movie trilogy the other night at work.

Cobra Commander- Brad Dourif or Gary Oldman
Storm Shadow- Jet Li (no brainer)
General Hawk- Robert Redford
Duke- Kurt Russell
Snake Eyes- Van Damme or Ray Park
Roadblock- Big Mike Duncan (no brainer)
Baroness- Kate Beckinsale
Whoever said Joaquin Phoenix for serpentor is a genius! I mean it that is perfect.
Zartan- Vin Diesel or Hugh Jackman
It gets brain scrambling just because there are so many characters we would like to see on the big screen. Nobody thought they would ever do lOTR so hey you never know!

It's hard to imagine anyone else as the Baroness besides Famke, perfect IMO.

What happened to the one thread that had a link to a site in which the creator had pics of the actors with pics of the characters they'd play? He had Ray Parks as Snake-Eyes, Jet Li as Stormy, Gary Oldman as CC.

I, for one, am tired of ppl casting Jet Li as Storm Shadow. Storm Shadow is Japanese, and Jet Li is Chinese. I would prefer a Japanese martial artist/actor to play Stormy. Someone like Kane Kosugi (http://www.megspace.com/entertainment/highimpact/stars/male/kane_kosugi.html), or Shane Kosugi (http://www.megspace.com/entertainment/highimpact/stars/male/shane_kosugi.html). Their father is Sho Kosugi (http://www.megspace.com/entertainment/highimpact/stars/male/sho_kosugi.html), who, IMO, is too old for the part.

I think most of my picks have already been echoed here by others, except for Flint, who would HAVE to be played by Michael Madsen. Think about it.

Also, if it were my flick, Brad Pitt will only be allowed access to one role: Inept, Tiresome Security Guard Who Gets Iced in First Five Minutes of Film.
Loved him in Interview and Ocean's Eleven, but that's it.

BTW, whoever said Kurt Russell for Duke, I agree totally. He was my first pick. But we'd have to get Michael Biehn to play Hawk.

Ok....I guess I have to be the one who says it:

Storm Shadow: Ken Watanabe ( you have to remember, Storm Shadow is a sword master...not just chai lai (kung fu)
Snake Eyes: Jet Li

That's right......I'm reversing Jet Li's role!

First of all.. Sean Penn is a scum bag. NO PENN!

With that rant out of the way...

General Flagg = Sam Elliott.

General Hawk = Clint Eastwood.

Duke = Bruce Willis

Stalker = Wesley Snipes

Snake Eyes = Any wazoo martial artist with a balaclava. Out of balaclava would be Brad Pitt.

Storm Shadow = Ken Watanabe

Flint = Matt Damon

Spirit Iron Knife = Adam Beach

Shipwreck = Ed Norton

I'll think of more next post.

Lady Jaye would be well-played by the brunette with the slight Irish lilt (just like the filecard) on the Overstock dot com commercials. She looks just like her, too...

I like these casting call things, we did it on SouthernFried a year or so back...I'll add a few...

Zartan-A beefed up Iggy Pop. Possibly Glenn Danzig.

Neither one of these guys have ever acted as far as I know. Iggy is a particular strange idea since he's a washed up junkie. Did anyone see that video of Danzig getting knocked out by a fat guy? That was hilarious. Danzig deserved it.
