Yesterday Mr. Christopher Q. Campbell informed us that both Rachel Nichols and Byeong-Heon Lee had been cast in Stephen Sommers'G.I. Joe movie (as "Scarlett" and "Storm Shadow," respectively). Now comes word from The Hollywood Reporter that a few more actors have joined the fray. In addition to the aforementioned ladies (and the already-cast Sienna Miller and Ray Park), we can now add Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Said Taghmaoui to the cast. They'll be playing "Heavy Duty" and "Breaker," respectively (again).

I know next to nothing about these characters, but I am pretty familiar with both actors. (Not personally.) Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is the guy who did amazing work as Simon Adibisi on HBO's prison series Oz, but moviegoers may remember him from flicks like The Mummy Returns, The Bourne Identity or Get Rich or Die Tryin'. (Yes, he's also on Lost.) And Said Taghmaoui is another great character actor. You've seen him recently in stuff like The Kite Runner, I Heart Huckabees and Hidalgo, but I'll always remember him as the chillingly logical interrogator from the excellent Three Kings.

Expect a lot more Joe casting reports as the action ensemble continues to come together.
