A little while ago I posted that veteran theater actor David Murray had agreed to take on the role of Destro in the upcoming G.I. Joe movie. A great role as what many assume to be the central villain of the film. Well I guess Murray had some work visa issues, because word comes down today, one day after filming officially began, that he is out and who is in but none other than Doctor Who himself Christopher Eccleston! Here is a good rundown of Destro's character, or just read his handy dandy filecard.
I think this is inspired casting. Eccleston will do great with the role. Good choice :)
