Reader Poll – Who Should Play Storm Shadow in the G.I.Joe Movie?

By Great White Snark | December 5, 2007

Slashfilm just confirmed this evening that Ray Park–most commonly known as The Dude Who Played Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace–has been cast as good-guy ninja Snake Eyes in the upcoming live-action G.I. Joe film. The role shan’t be much a stretch for the martial-artist-turned-stuntman-turned-actor. (You know, especially since the character is mute.)

This leads to the question on every geek’s mind: What the f*&% was up with the Heroes finale on Monday?

Ok, so… the question right after that: Which actor should play Snake Eyes’s evil ninja counterpart, Storm Shadow?

UPDATE: The casting of Storm Shadow goes to Byung-Hun Lee, a Korean “mega-star” and American nobody.

What say you?

      Well considering he’s Japanese they should at least go with an actor who is Asian, unless they decide to do some embarrassing ass Breakfast at Tiffany’s style white man as an Asain thing.

      If we’re constrained to Japanese actors, I would nominate Hiroyuki Sanada, the badass who beat on Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai. He’s intense.
