G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes Adds Ray Stevenson As Firefly

The cast of G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes continues to grow. Dwayne Johnson, RZA, DJ Cotrona, Adrianne Palicki and Elodie Yung are all set to join returning star Channing Tatum in the 2012 sequel. Now The Hollywood Reporter confirms that there’s one more new face as well: Ray Stevenson.

You know Stevenson from any number of places. Most recently, he played Volstagg in Thor, but he also starred as the vigilante Frank Castle in Punisher: War Zone and held a starring role on HBO’s Rome. In Cobra Strikes he’ll play Firefly, the terrorist organization’s camouflage ski mask-wearing saboteur and stealth ops expert. You probably won’t see his face, but now you’ll know who it is kicking everyone’s ass.

    It’s a shame all of these more capable actors will have to settle in Tatum’s wooden shadow. :(

    This sequel sounds like it’s going to be better than the first film.

    I finally sat down and watched G.I. Joe; Rise of Cobra the other day.  For all intents and purposes, it wasn’t designed for the hardcore or even casual fan, but geared towards selling more toys (accelerator suits???) to the kids.  It wasn’t entirely bad, but I agree it was a train wreck.   I also had to question some of their casting, I thought Arnold Vosloo was wasted as Zartan.  I would have liked to see what he did with the Cobra Commander role or even Dr. Mindbender.  They also tried to introduce too many characters at one time.  It was obvious this was being set up as a franchise. It would have made more sense to tease Cobra Commander in the shadows at the end of the movie and keep the focus on Destro, Baroness, and Storm Shadow.

    I think the movie should have been Destro, Baroness, Major Bludd, Storm Shadow, Zartan, and the Dreadnoks committing terrorest attacks and assassination around the world to weaken the Joe team and preparing for Cobra Commander and Emperor’s attack on the United Nations.
