Rachel Nichols
Newly submitted into the list are "P2" star Rachel Nichols, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje of "Lost" fame, and "The Kite Runner" actor Said Taghmaoui.


More are coming to enlarge the "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" brigade. The Hollywood Reporter has brought up casting info stating Rachel Nichols, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Said Taghmaoui have all joined the movie's lineup alongside previously-announced Sienna Miller and Ray Park.

Nichols, fresh from her role in "P2", is reported to play a skilled martial artist named Scarlett who specializes in hand-to-hand combat and counterintelligence. Akinnuoye-Agbaje, known as Mr. Eko in ABC's hit series "Lost", will portray ordnance expert Heavy Duty with Taghmaoui billed as Breaker, the team's communications specialist.

Scheduled for an August 7, 2009 release, "Joe" is based on the popular Hasbro military-themed action figures, comic book series, and Saturday morning cartoon. "The Mummy" helmer Stephen Sommers has boarded the flick to direct with Miller and Park playing Baroness and Snake Eyes, respectively. Script was originally developed by Skip Woods before "30 Days of Night" scribe Stuart Beattie got hired to tackle the latest draft.
