The latest rumor online is that actor Ray Park has been cast to play bad-ass ninja operative Snake Eyes in the 'G.I. Joe' movie. The news comes from unnamed sources.
Park is well known to readers of this site as Toad in the movie 'X-Men'. He was also long attached to Marvel's 'Iron Fist' project which never took off. 'G.I. Joe' is set to roll cameras early next year with 'Van Helsing' director Stephen Sommers at the helm.
According to Slashfilm "Snake Eyes is one of the original members of the GI Joe series. Hasbro has released over 30 figures of the character since his debut in 1982. Not much is known about the ninja master’s real identity, as it has remained classified throughout the series. The U.S. Army Sergeant First Class (E-7) is known for his stealth like movements and extensive knowledge of multiple forms of martial arts. Snake-Eyes is romantically involved with fellow G.I. Joe member Master Sergeant Shana M. O’Hara, a.k.a. Scarlett."
