Who needs the trades and studio press announcements when you have Dwayne Johnson on board your production. With the actor star poised to lead John Chu's G.I. Joe sequel, he was the first to reveal a glimpse of his Roadblock character in uniform and the first to confirm that Bruce Willis would be in as the first Joe, General Joe Colton. And now he's revealed via his Twitter that his friend DeRay Davis is also poised to play a character in the production which is shooting in New Orleans. Check out a photo of the two arm wrestling by clicking on the image above. There's no word yet on which character Davis will be playing.
Davis joins Channing Tatum (Duke), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Byung Hun-lee (Stormshadow), Elodie Yung (Jinx), Adrianne Palicki (Lady Jaye), Ray Stevenson (Firefly), RZA (Blind Master), DJ Cotrona (Flint), Joseph Mazzello (Mouse), Walton Goggins (Warden Nigel James) and Bruce Willis (General Joe Colton). Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the screenplay.
G.I. Joe 2 will hit theaters June 29, 2012.
