As for the Fraser/Rock rumor, I believe that has been dispelled as the Rock has said, he wasn't approached to be in the movie and Fraser says he rides a motorcycle and the character's name was completely different. In fact, the last rumor going around about Fraser's character was that he was either Rock N Roll or an all new character. IIRC the rumored scene with Shipwreck had him in a sub.
Either way, we'll all know for sure once the movie comes out

Ok... Firefly007 contacted me about the thread war here about a movie ver. Shipwreck. Now since I've read some of the stuff going on here, Figured I'd add my two dimes into this.
I'm rather knowledge ridden with Shippy since he's a favorite of mine, and has been for a very long time.
Hector Xavier Delgado is hispanic born in C.A. just a short ways from the San Diego Shipyard. Now, growing up he used to dream of being in the Navy. He enlisted when he was 4 months away from being 18. Now He is hispanic but he's American born so was his mother and father, However his grandmother wasn't, neither was his grandfather on his father's side. That said, we all could really go that way too through family trees.
If you guys want to throw stones at the movie figures, here's one for you.... Polly was also changed. The original Polly art work is a double yellow head Amazon, the figure is a Yellow Nape Amazon, and the new one is a macaw. big difference. There are also Rate conflictions with Shipwreck as well.
His original rate was E7(Chief Petty officer)
Second was also E7(Chief Petty Officer)
New file card FF 25th line E8( Senior Chief Petty Officer)
Now Movie line, he was busted down to E7( Chief) What backstory could be held now for his getting busted down a rank? Pop Gung Ho, or Law?
One thing I did not like is giving him the rank of E7, yet having him in E6 Utility clothes (work blues) He should have been in Khakis with a cap, not a Dixie. His stripes were on the wrong arm, should have been on the LEFT arm, not Right. ONly thing right was his dixie was squared. Now Granted I love Shipwreck, and the USN( up till where they changed most uniforms recently)
Now ... other thing I'd like to point out on the movie note... if Ship's in it, should have him wearing a Budweiser on his uniform. this time have him in the right uniform for his class. I don't care who they get to play him. just hope he's got some lines, and gets some action time.
YO JOE! If you want to know what Budweiser is, ask me.
