Ray Stevenson joins Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson in G.I. Joe 2
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The casting announcements for the second G.I. Joe film continue to roll in and it looks like they’ve bagged another (somewhat) big star in Ray Stevenson. He’ll be playing the Cobra covert operative Firefly. Firefly was a demolitions expert in the comics and cartoons. The somewhat odd thing with this casting is that if they hold true to the original description of Firefly, then they’ll have to leave that ski mask on because Firefly never reveals his face. With that in mind, they could have cast anyone to play Firefly, so it’s odd they went with a recognizable face/name.
He joins a cast that includes Channing Tatum as Duke, Dwayne Johnson as Road Block, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Lee Byong-Hun as Storm Shadow, Elodie Yung as Jinx, Adrieanne Palicki as Lady Jaye, D.J. Cortona as Flint and possibly Bruce Willis as General Joe Colton. Jon M. Chu is directing the film that hits theaters on August 10th, 2012.
