Dennis Quaid Joins GI Joe Movie

Yo, Joe!

Dennis Quaid has joined the cast of GI Joe: The Movie, according to Variety.

    #4 Speak for yourself. I happen to think Dennis Quaid is a great choice for Hawk. I have no opinion about about Channing Tatum since I haven’t seen him in anything. Although I personally thought of Duke as older and more battle hardened.

    I see Arnold Vosloo as more of a Destro type then Zartan but that could still work.

    Honestly I can’t even believe they’re making this movie. I smell a flop here. I realllly don’t think there’s much of an international market for an “American Action-Figure War Hero” kind of movie these days…but on the other hand, if they do what the rumors are saying and make GI Joe more politically correct and all that, that will just water the whole thing down and make it even lamer, and meanwhile alienate the fanbase. One way or the other I just don’t see how this can be good. Forget about Dennis Quaid, it’s Joseph Gordon Levitt I’m worried about. Get out while you still can honey, before you ruin your career!

    I am a member of the United States Military. I am very angry at the GIJOE movie being changed from Real American Heroes to a more global friendly picture that plays on the anti American sentiment. GIJOE stands for Government Issued Joes which came about during WW2 from a Medal of Honor winner. My self and other Military personnel are starting an email camping to boy cot Hasbro and all related items about the movie. As fare as I am concerned this is a slap in the face to all American Military world wide past and present. Any one involved in this Movie in any way is a traitor to the American Way of Life. Since when did it become so wrong to be a Real American Hero? To add insult to injury to all Americans, Cobra Commander is an American CIA agent turned traitor who ends up leading cobra. So an American in charge of a terrorist group!! Nice to see Hollywood is so Pro America??? 1 major insult I find is, in the movie GIJOE will fall under the command of the U.N. Since when did the U.N. do any thing for the world except complain and criticize those for taking action to help to help save lives?? Any 1?

    I am a United States Marine and a Real American Hero. As fare as I am concerned the actors of the upcoming movie have turned their backs on the troops of the United States Military.Hear is a quote from a former service member Retired Army Col. David W. Hunt, a FOX News military and terrorism analyst, called the scheme to make a whole new Joe “a shame.” G.I. Joe is a U.S. guy,” Hunt said. “What are we going to call it — Global Joe? International Joe? It’s kind of stupid. It’s ridiculous that they’re doing that.
    Juts 1 More thing, GIJOE has all ways been American Soldiers.
