Actor Joseph Mazzello is the latest Joe to be cast in Paramount Pictures' untitled G.I. Joe sequel, with Deadline reporting he will be playing a character named Mouse. Many of you already know Mazzello as a childhood actor after his role of Tim in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park but he recently co-starred in The Social Network and "The Pacific" as well.

Joseph will be joining the previously set stars Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock), Byung Hun-lee (Stormshadow), Elodie Yung (Jinx), Adrianne Palicki (Lady Jaye), Ray Stevenson (Firefly), RZA (Blind Master) and DJ Cotrona (Flint). Production on the sequel is set to begin shortly under the directing guidance of John Chu (Step Up 3D), based on a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

While we have no plot concept to pass along at the moment, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently told MTV Movies that Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock character will be a leading part of the story and "The ninja fans are going to love it. There's a tremendous amount of it. What's interesting is, we both have that going on in the Snake Eyes story, but we've found a way to bring that element into the Joes' story. I think anybody who's a fan of dark, in the middle of the night [action with] a dangerous foe arriving, this is a movie for you."

G.I. Joe 2 will arrive in theaters August 10, 2012.

What do you call the 1st G.I.Joe movie?

A crapasaurus.

Tatum is still in there....crap!!!

 Maybe Duke'll bite it early on.  Or at least be incapacitated for the majority of the movie.

Wow I didn't realize that kid kept on acting, good for him.

Mouse, is that a new addition to the team.

I hope they add Fumbles to the team, he's my favorite Joe even though he went bad :)

Spiderhero gets the quote of the day in my book!  While I enjoyed the first GI Joe movie, that was just funny.  I was never a big fan of the cartoon series, so that may be why.  It was sandwiched between 2 cartoons I liked so I watched it.  Transformers and ... something else.  :)

Oh, and is the Baroness not going to be in the sequel?

I liked to first one!! .. timidly hiding in the corner

A Snake Eyes - Storm Shadow story would be cool.  Just hope they fix Snake Eyes mask.  I hated the mouth, they really need to remove it.

Again...these studios boggle my mind with changes or additions to the story even though there is a wealth of material in the comics and cartoon.

Mouse. Yeah...nice going.  Never heard of him. Yet there are over 100  joes to choose from. sigh...

LOL! Wise.  Maybe they can have the storyline when Fumbles joins Cobra and changes into Trouser Snake.
