Dominic West Is Not Destro

DestroRumours were flying round the internet last night that Dominic West has been cast as Destro. This morning the the Paramount lords have decreed these words to be gibberish! We get the skinny from our friends at IESB:

A very high up and reliable source at Paramount gives IESB an update on the rumored casting of Destro. After the recent posting over at LatinoReview that Dominic West was a contender and possible top choice to play Destro in the live action G.I. Joe we had to see if we could get confirmation. What we got was a quick and flat out denial. I am told he’s not even on the short list they have compiled to choose from for the Scottish Arms Dealer.

So there you go folks. Destro’s Identity still remains a secret. This still does not change the fact that that much of the news coming out of the G.I. Joe camp sucks. Questionable casting decisions and the inclusion of Heavy Duty still have my hopes dreadfully low. I want this film to rule, and although I am hoping for the best; I do not predict good things.

We are still waiting on a few key castings for some of the main heroes/villians. Getting a few solid players on board would certainly be good, and I concede that it would give me a glimmer of hope. Destro and Cobra Commander are legendary villains and their casting should be treated seriously, we need actors that are able to command respect and instill fear with their words. We need charismatic men that demand allegiance from those around them, driving them onward towards world domination!
