well lets face it The Rock is better than Cena any day of the week. Plus this isn't the first time a werstler has done a voice on GI Joe. Last of all it isn't live action.

Is Renegades going to be a Monday-Friday cartoon, or is it going to be weekly? I didn't think they did five episode a week cartoons anymore.

The Rock is not a terrible actor. And it's voice acting, so... I'm cool with it.

I'm stoked for the cartoon.

This is the single most untrue thing you've ever said. Cena >>> The Rock.

I'm pretty stoked to hear that the Rock and Lee Majors are onboard. The Rock is actually pretty damn talented. He's got alot of charisma and a great voice. Wonder who he's voicing? Can't wait for this to hit. I work the graveyard shift, so I hope the classic shows aren't on too late, or I'll have to DVR them.

The Rock says ... know your role and buy my 2011 SDCC Exclusive GI Joe figure!

Good stuff. Can't wait to see how Renegades will turn out. The pic of the MARS chopper is totally sick. I pray that this doesn't totally crash and burn. Hasbro has been hitting things right lately with collectibles'. If things play out right guys' and gals' we could be in for one helluva' ride. Yo Joe!!!

The 3 seconds of Renegades on the Hub intro video on their website looks pretty cool. Looks somewhat like Resolute...oh and Transformers Prime looks like it is worth a watch.

all this talk and what not and still no pics of the figures or actual adverisements and this comes out 10.10.10? I am not getting my hopes up for any of this until we get some prototypes out on where this is heading.

The Rock is ok, as long as he gets a cameo in ROC 2.0 :) I'll go see it just to see him playing Sarge from Doom again...

I would love to have a Rock Joe figure. What a great choice. 3 cheers. Lee Majors? I'm not sure but it'll be cool to hear his voice.

If I remember correctly the actual toy line isn't supposed to be out until next Summer/Fall. So there probably isn't a whole lot to show yet.

HA! That would be hilarious... if he said.. "sure, I can do that" and then never had to come in and record lines, he just got cut a check.

I don't know anything about wrestling but the Rock guy seems like a decent dude and isn't a terrible actor.

Can you smell what Snake Eyes is cookin!? I think I could live with snake eyes alking and his lips a movin if The Rock was making him talk!

Rock playing Roadblock, or GungHo would be cool. GungHo voiced by the Rock: C'Mon Bring It!

This will be awesome.

Oh my Christ, you have GOT to be kidding! John Cena doesn't even come close to the The Rock.

Dood... Gung-Ho voiced by The Rock!!! I can totally see this. I know he was in consideration for playing Shipwreck in the movie. Which, for the record, is a big NOOOO!!!!

But, having him voice GH for the cartoon is full of win!!!

The Rock? LOL So much for his career if he is now relgated to voice over acting for a cartoon very few people will ever see. What do you think they are paying him? $300 an episode? Jeeezzz I knew his movies were bombing but Dammmmnnnn!

@ MOD: Please change the front page.

The HUB has stated The Rock will voice Cliffjumper in Transformers and will not be lending his voice talents to Renegades.

You mean a voice for what's probably going to be the most popular "boy's show" on the new network? (Transformers Prime that is)

Also: Voice acting is in no way a sign of a weak career. It's easy money between movie jobs, for a LOT of celebrities, and easy publicity for an animated or video game project...win-win. Unless you want to try telling us that Samuel L. Jackson's career was hurting when he did voicework on Afro Samurai?

^ This.

It's now common place for even A list actors to take work as animation voice over actors. You can show up in your PJ's, make good money, and many have said over and over again that much like old radio shows, it helps their overall acting ability as you have to rely on your voice and not mannerisms.

Since the rock isn't actually in it is there any news on who Lee Majors is going to do the voice of because looking at the known characters I can see him as Hawk.

it's voice acting, and they both have great voices. Is Lee Majors going to voice hawk?

Xenos

Lee Majors is doing Hawk. It was mentioned in the "Renegades Character Descriptions and Cast" thread.

I've also updated my G.I. Joe: Renegades Superpage with all of the known voice actors so far (and who they're playing):

Good job with the site General Hawk. Its nicely organized.

Though sadly it looks like Hub and Hasbro have decided to leave marketing the series to the fan community.
