Destro cast!

01.30.2008
That exclamation mark was pretty sarcastic, and a little bit sad. I still don't think that the GI JOE movie has moved into clusterfuck territory yet, but if you ask me, this casting is a major step in that direction. It's basically one The OC cast member away. Destro, the film's main villain has apparently been cast, and the man to play him is David Murray, also known as 'Charles Bowden' from VERONICA GUERIN, or 'who?' by the 6 and a half billion people who weren't looking out for his role because they were blood relatives. Now, I'm all for the casting of unknown actors in major films, but in the juiciest role in a mega budget movie? I don't know about that. Hopefully he'll make me eat my words, though. This casting comes hot on the heels of Cap Rooney, Dennis Quaid being cast as 'Hawk' and Billy Zane's evil twin, Arnold Vosloo being cast as 'Zartan'. GI JOE is directed by Stephen Sommers (VAN HELSING).
Extra Tidbit: Murray is actually the thug in BATMAN BEGINS who fires maniacally into the night and then goes WHERE ARE YOU?? Before Bats pops up behind him with 'Here'.

I was never into the idea of a GI joe movie. And so far, nothing seems to change my opinion. this doesnt seem to be going in the right direction. hope this thing dies like JLA.

Off the top of my head, I would think Lawrence Fishburne would be a great Destro.

just my opinion.

I know Destro was supposed to be a Scottish guy (even though he's never been portrayed with an accent) but I always felt this role had Ving Rhames name all over it.

wait

Little so far seems to suggest will outright suck. We're not talking JLA here yet. In fact some of the casting has been pretty spot on. As for this casting...doesn't Destro WEAR A FUCKING MASK ANYWAY? If he doesn't...well that would be a shame. If he does, who cares who plays him? Unknowns aren't alwaysa bad thing. Routh was a great Superman, and it wasn't like David Prowse or James Earl Jones were mega stars, they were just the RIGHT guys to play Vader. The JLA thing was hilariously sad/funny.

I'm in the "let's wait a little longer" camp. I have to agree though that Billy Zane or Arnold Vosloo could have been perfect.

There's no way I will ever see G.I. Joe in theatres, but I remember David Murray from Batman Begins and he did a good job in that role. Good to see him moving up in the world.

Oh fuck...

...there goes this whole movie! Funny you guys mention Billy Zane in the article - he would make a better Destro. Even the guy who plays Dokes on 'Dexter'.
