would much rather have Sgt. Stalker in the movie.
I mean I'm I the only one, that looks at Marlon Wayans and sees the spiting image of Stalker?

A creator (like me ) created Ripcord witha specific look and history, and its no ones right to change it, plain and simple...if they made Sanford and Son remake and cast it entirely with Asians...it would SUCK. Just like if they remade the Jeffersons and made them all Middle Eastern....GIJOE the movie is being made because the fans have followed it and kept it alive for 25+ years , why change stuff like races? and NO im not being racist...I was pissed when they changed Spawns best friend (who was black in the comic and cartoon) into a white guy for the movie....

Marlon should play Zartan with his master of disguise as a white chick.

Look this is all pointless, he is a crappy actor and it is not a good thing to have a Wayanes Brother in your movie if your planning on making it worth while. They might as well have casted leonardo Decrapio as Duke. And to be honest there really is no one left that could play these part's. All of the good actors are all old that we grew up with and most of the new Hot shots are just to far off the mark to even remotley play GI JOES correctly.
It really does not matter which part he plays cause he will suck at any of them and still ruin the movie and you need better options in your poll because it reeks of putting people on the spot for saying they want a white guy vs. black guy which is not even the right point of this thread in my opinion (I did not pick one as none of the answers correclty sum it up for me). They just need a different actor.
If we want to get really rediculous, Eddie Murphy would do just as good as Wayans Bro....LOL!

I'm not "upset" by any of it. I'll go see the movie. I see how they're trying to update the image by modernizing GI Joe a little with the black suits, etc. But I think that a good compromise would have been to keep the characters basically the same even if they change the uniforms. I think it would have also been more crowd-pleasing to see who some of the more popular characters are and use them. I know that Ripcord is a popular character, but he might not be on the top 10 list. They can't have all of the Joe characters because it would be too costly and it was hard enough for Laryy Hama to include everyone in the comics. I just wish they would have done a little better casting job. I wouldn't like it if they used Jason Statham to play Roadblock. I wouldn't like it if they got Stacey Dash to play Scarlett (although she is smokin' hot). It's not about race but about the original character. Characters can change hair color, or shave, or get plastic surgery, but they just can't change race. I mean, would you all want to watch Billy Zane play Shaft? I didn't think so. If Ripcord was originally a black guy, I wouldn't have any problem with a black guy playing the part (although I am a little leary about Marlon Wayans in particular, but he just might be able to pull it off).

Ripcord is just a foreshadowing of bigger inconsistencies we'll see throughout the entire film.
They are not being sincere or smart about re-imagining this franchise. These people are just looking for a quick buck off of a big name.
But no one's going to convince me that I'm a rascist if I don't love Marlon Wayans as a character he was poorly cast as. Thanks but I'll stick with the real writers and creators on this one.
P.S. Heavy Duty should be played by Seth Green and Jim Carey should be Roadblock
