It's funny, once they announced a G.I. Joe live-action film, I totally thought I'd kick ass on all the posts. See, I played with the Joe action figures religiously when I was a kid. From time to time, Superman and the Star Wars guys would cross over into my G.I. Joe universe (oh yes, I was way ahead of Hollywood on the cross-over themes), but most of the time it was just me and my Joes. Now, however, as more cast members and characters are revealed, I've found myself somewhat lost.

Like today, IESB tells us the character of Cover Girl has been cast, and that supermodel Karolina Kurkova will be taking on the role. Cover Girl? I never played with a hottie action figure! Actually, it's probably a good thing I didn't, what with the whole ... ya know ... growing up thing. Anyway, Cover Girl was apparently featured in the comics and the cartoon, and the character was actually a former fashion model who joined the army when she found her former life to be unfulfilling. Most of the info on her includes the many crushes guys had on her, as well as who she dated in what issue, etc ... -- so I imagine a lot of that will come into play in the movie. She'll probably be the hot Joe everyone wants to get with ... until one man (Duke?) eventually wins her over. My apologies to all the PC women out there, but this girl is absolutely smokin'! Check out more pics of her below ...
