Marky Mark: A Real American Hero

Rumor has it that Mark Wahlberg might play a lead role in a live-action film based on the "GI Joe" cartoon series. Popular with children of the '80s, "GI Joe" brought to life Hasbro's toy line. Wahlberg would play Duke, or First Sergeant Conrad S. Hauser, one of the American soldiers fighting against terrorist organization COBRA.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura just completed production on Shooter, another film starring Wahlberg and has already approached Marky Mark about the GI Joe project. For all the details,

IESB quotes Wahlberg as saying: "I'll do whatever Lorenzo wants me to do; it really depends on the script, obviously, but it's a cool idea. He says it's going to be kick ass, so yeah."

Perhaps di Bonaventura has '80s cartoon hits on the brain: He is also producing the upcoming film version of "Transformers." What's next a "Jem and the Holograms" movie? Wait a minute, that would be awesome! I'd cast Kirsten Bell to play Jem. Who would you pick?

A Jem and the Holograms movie would be outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

Mark Wahlberg will be great as GI Joe, but he should watch out -- he could get typecast so easily. I liked it when he mixed it up with fun, random, comedic roles like in I Heart Huckabee's.

I'd cast an actress who can really sing as Jem. I'm sick of voice-over singers.

I saw the previews for that Shooter movie. I thought that was Marky Mark. Of course, the people I was with had no idea who Marky Mark was...but at least I know I was right.
