    Latino Review reports that Brendan Fraser has filmed what sounds like a cameo as Gung Ho in G.I. Joe, while Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been offered the role of Shipwreck. The Stephen Sommers-directed action-adventure is now filming for an August 7, 2009 release.

    http://www.latinoreview.com/news/fraser-gung-ho-for-g-i-joe-and-the-rock-to-get-shipwrecked-4331

    I have just learned through my sources that BRENDAN FRASER has booked the role of GUNG HO for Stephen Sommer’s big screen live-action adaptation of "G.I. Joe." Now, it is only a one scene cameo. The scene is question is a training sequence at THE PIT. Brendan already shot his part. Me personally, I always thought GUNG HO was the most gay looking of the Joes. I mean come on, the tattooed chest, the vest with no shirt on and that hat?! If there was a soldier in the VILLAGE PEOPLE, GUNG HO would definitely be it!

    I also learned that AN OFFER has been made to THE ROCK for the role of HECTOR DELGADO aka SHIPWRECK. At this time THE ROCK hasn’t said either yes or no, but the offer is out to him. Can THE ROCK smell what Shipwreck is cooking? We should find out soon enough. I knew it was only a matter of time before they would start offering Latino roles to THE ROCK who is Samoan.

    I have a man-crush on Brendan Fraser, but Gung-Ho? Will he be bald and gay? The Rock as Shipwreck?

    I think it would be better if The Rock was Gung-Ho and Fraser was Shipwreck. The Rock already has muscles and tats and Fraser is good at acting sarcastic and whiney.

    I have a man-crush on The Rock. Have since "The Rundown."

    But Shipwreck? This movie makes Prime's flames pretty insigificant.

    Which, y'know, they were already.

    I think both actors are decent in their own a way, but niether would I picture for either role. I could actually see Fraser playing maybe Flint. As for The Rock, I can't really think of anyone he really strikes me as.

    Hey like Dennis Quaid said...
    This movie will have ACTION AND CLEAVAGE!!!!!!!!!
    lol.


    errr..ok..


    yeah...





    I personally don't really care about the actors they choose, as long as it has a decent storyline, and it is a littler higher up than a typical "popcorn movie".

    I like Brendan Fraser, and this just sounds like a cameo, so you know, maybe a few seconds on screen. In the background.

    While Darth Maul jumps around a bit. The more I see about this film the more I like the sound of it.

    As soon as I read the OP I thought the same thing. Shipwreck is a goofy sarcastic type of guy and Fraser could do that very well, where as Gung Ho is supposed to be the tough guy so the Rock could handle that better.

    Wouldn't it be funny if both actors were playing the character we think the other is playing?

    I still can't see either actor playing either character, and the casting has been pretty amazing (IMO) up to this point...

    For me, I love both actors, love both characters, but it's still wrong.

    Fraiser as Flint sounds cool. Rock should be Roadblock.

    John Leguazamo (sp...who am i kidding, I know I spelled it wrong) should be Shipwreck, and get Steve Austin to Cameo as Gung Ho.

    I always thought Josh Holloway (Sawyer on Lost) was perfect for Shipwreck

    I dont see the Rock playing Shipwreck at all... I dont see Fraser playing Gung Ho at all either

    The actors might be alright for the movie, but the casting is ass backwards. How the hell is Brendan Fraser supposed to play a big burly badass marine like Gung Ho?

    And don't get me wrong, Shipwreck wasn't a scrawny little runt or something but he wasn't really a big guy either, and was known for being a total smartass running his mouth constantly.

    I can see Gung Ho doing the peoples eyebrow and then hitting somebody, not Shipwreck.
