'G.I. Joe 2' Finds Actor for Its Villain Firefly


Ray Stevenson


Ray Stevenson who is known for his roles in 'Thor' and 'The Book of Eli' has joined 'Cobra Strikes' as the martial arts master.

One more actor has been added to "G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes" which is scheduled to begin production this summer in Louisiana. After recruiting Adrienne Palicki as Lady Jaye and The Rock as Roadblock, Paramount Pictures has appointed "Thor" star Ray Stevenson to slip in the role of the villain, Firefly.

In the games, Firefly is a martial arts master who is also a saboteur and an expert in all NATO and Warsaw Pact explosives and detonators. He is often sent on a lone mission by Cobra. At the end of the first live-action movie, Cobra's leaders Destro and Cobra Commander are locked up in high-security prison. The actors, Christopher Eccleston and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, are not expected to make a return but the character are masked anyway, allowing director Jon Chu to do a re-cast.

On the Joes side, there's Baroness who is considered reformed. Bruce Willis reportedly is touted to full in the role of Joe Colton while an actor is yet assigned for the role of Mouse, a "teen eye candy".

"G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes" is scheduled for theatrical release on August 10, 2012.
