DJ Cotrona confirmed for role in G.I. Joe sequel

Just yesterday we posted rumors about RZA and DJ Cotrona being possibly linked to the G.I. Joe sequel.  Well, even though Jon Chu has been retweeting several articles in reference to RZA, the first semi-official confirmation is for DJ Cotrona, and it comes from the Twitter page of G.I. Joe 2 scribe Rhett Reese.  In a response to HissTank.com staffer Echo7Solo, he writes:

“…that one I can confirm. DJ in the movie!”

Rumors abound that Cotrona will be playing famous Warrant Officer Flint in the Joe sequel, and I think he would make a great one.  Granted, most folks haven’t seen his work, but as a huge fan of Detroit 187, I’m pretty familiar with him.  He certainly wasn’t the strongest personality on that show, but I think he would still make a fine Flint.  Check out a YouTube embed below for some of his work:

Again, not the strongest personality in the show, but he’s got a great foundation and a bunch of potential.

Confirmation – Zellers to receive Ashiko and HISS Scout Alpha Vehicles!

Start making some friends North of the border… JoeCanuck  has gotten word from Hasbro Canada that Zellers has agreed to carry the missing Alpha Vehicles for the Pursuit of Cobra toyline, which includes the highly sought after Ashiko w/ Cycle Armor and HISS Scout vehicles!

The exact phrase of the email is below:

“Just got word from Hasbro Canada that due to the fan outpouring and
feedback on these units, Zellers has stepped up to the plate and ordered
them!

That’s right – The HISS Scout and Cycle Armour have left Hasbro’s
warehouses and are en route to a Zellers near you! Look for them to arrive
within the next little while.

So, we said our piece, and Hasbro and Zellers listened. Now it’s up to us
to show them that it was a good decision by getting out there and buying
this stock up!
