Dennis Quaid, good ol’ Cap Rooney from Any Given Sunday, will join Channing Tatum, Marlon Wayans and others in the upcoming Stephen Sommers-directed GI Joe (the stupidest idea since Justice League).
Quaid will play General Hawk, the grizzled team leader and Tatum will play Duke Hauser, the lead soldier in the Stephen Sommers-directed film, which is scheduled to shoot next month in L.A. Pic is set for release on Aug. 7, 2009. [Variety]
You know, I always thought of Dennis Quaid as an A-list actor, or pretty close. And yet here he is doing a comic book movie with the director of Van Helsing and playing second fiddle to the guy from Step Up? This movie’s basically on the level of the Dragonball Z movie, or Beyond the Ring, so my best explanation is that he has a severe drug problem or took a dump on an ancient indian burial ground or something.
I’m henceforth boycotting all Dennis Quaid movies until he makes a sequel to Dragonheart (trailer after the jump).
