Roald the Rotten Part 2

By the way, part 2 of Roald the Rotten has been just about finished for a few months now. I just need to print it out and put it together. I will be selling parts 1 and 2 along with 2 brand new comics at the MoCCA festival on April 9th and 10th. More on that as the date gets closer.

Proposed casting for a live action G.I. Joe movie (early 90s version)

I think we can all agree the recent live action G.I. Joe movie was pretty awful. Part of the reason for it's failure was poor casting. If a movie had been made in the early 90s when the cartoon was fresh in every one's mind, producers of that movie would have available a cast most movies dream of. See my suggestions below:

In an, admittedly, bold choice I would select Dave Coulier for the role of Duke. I believe he has the combo of wholesome attitude and leadership to handle this role.

Underrated character actor Gary Grubbs would make a perfect Cross Country.

Lou Gossett Jr as Roadblock, obviously.

Peter Deluise would be able to get into the scenery chewing role of Cobra henchman Torch.

Eric Stoltz would be able to make a genuinely frightening Zartan

The multi-talented Steve Earle would make a chilling Monkeywrench.

Screen legend Robert Duvall has the depth and poignancy needed for the role of Beach Head.

How about a sultry, early 90s Madonna as the evil Baroness?

Another no-brainer. Julia Roberts as Scarlett

Home Improvement's Richard Karn would be a great Shipwreck!

Action star Lou Diamond Phillips as the karate master Quick Kick.

A Home Alone era John Heard, could make the otherwise forgettable character Lifeline memorable.

Denzel as Doc. Need i say more?

And finally utility infielder Tom Brookins of the Detroit Tigers as Bazooka.
