MTV.com interviews Marlon Wayans about G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA

So far Marlon Wayans has been surprisingly silent about his role as “Ripcord” in the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA motion picture, being released August 7th of this year.  Well, he breaks his silence with MTV.com and lets the fans know what they should expect from the film.

“The movie is serious, action and some comedy – but not all comedy,” insisted the star, who will bring an extremely different look to the High Altitude Low Opening jumper in the August 7th flick. “You pull off the reigns; I did what was appropriate for the role and for the character.”

“It wasn’t about ‘Hey, let it be the me comedy show’,” promised Wayans. “It is G.I. Joe. It’s supposed to be badass action. So you commit to it – and I found the fun in being a badass, for once in my life.”

There’s plenty of other interesting tidbits over at MTV.com so check out the article here.

hiss-01Well, thanks to Jeff Bohn stumbling on it yesterday, and letting GeneralsJoes break the news, the DeviantArt floodgates have opened.  Jeff also found the page belonging to Joaquin Dos Santos, who, in turn led to several other artists who worked on the project, and a whole wealth of awesome looking concept art, backgrounds, and storyboards are up there for the enjoyment of all!  Unfortunately I haven’t been able to uncover any character turnarounds or designs, which is what I’m really after, but damn, this is some COOL stuff right here.  I’ve broken it all down into galleries below, but PLEASE check out everyone’s DeviantArt page and lavish huge praise on them.  The “look” of Resolute was one of the best things about it, so these artists deserve a mountain of credit for breathing life into our favorite plastic men and women.  Check out the shots at the “Read the rest of this Entry” link below, you do NOT want to miss these:
