"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Earlier this month we reported that Dwayne Johnson was up for the role of Roadblock in director Jon Chu’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra sequel, G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. He posted as much yesterday on the Internet (via IGN), so you know it’s true.
But wait! There’s more!
There’s also word from The Hollywood Reporter that Wu-Tang Clan member RZA is in negotiations to join the cast as — wait for it… — “a martial arts master named the Blind Master who in the past trained Joe commandos Snake Eyes and Jinx (Elodie Yung).” Also up for a role is Detroit 1-8-7 actor D.J. Cotrona, who would play the beret-wearing Joe, Flint.
