I might slag off a lot of things in the movies, but Duhamel isn't one of them. Granted if it is a reboot, it'd make little sense for him to be in it, but he and his soldier boys were the best GI Joes we've gotten in a Hasbro film so far.
For real. Transformers 2007 was a better G.I. Joe movie than G.I. Joe was.
Totally have to agree with that. I think having the combination of Josh and Tyrese in the films was what made some of the scenes not just tolerable but actually enjoyable. I don't think anybody else could have pulled off that scene of "ejecting" the Defense Director out of the back of the C-130 in RotF quite as well.
Like I said before, it's just too darn soon to do a re-boot, especially with the same team of Bay and Spielberg calling the shots. This is going to be a suck-fest and this is coming from someone who has been open minded throughout the whole Movie Series.
Wow. I was unaware of the fandom's rabid following of Mr. Duhamel.
Seriously though, that was just the first thing that went through my mind when I read the news article. The name Josh Duhamel hardly carries the kind of weight that would confirm the existence of a new movie, especially when he only said that certain people weren't going to be in it.
