While the new acronym for the G.I. Joe film may be utterly ridiculous and blindingly stupid, the movie is getting one thing right – the hotties. We previously reported Sienna Miller as The Baroness and now Latino Review has gotten a hold on two new cast members.

Byung-Hun Lee, a Korean mega-star has been cast as probably the second most badass ninja of all time (second only to Snake-Eyes, of course) as Arashikage clan member Tommy Arashikage. At various times Tommy, better known as Storm Shadow, has severed as Cobra Commander’s personal bodyguard, COBRA assassin, and brother in arms to G.I. Joe commando Snake-Eyes.

Upping the hotness factor is smoking babe Rachel Nichols. At first mention of her name, I said “Who?” and noting a small picture, was somewhat disappointed that she wasn’t that hot. But I was an idiot. After Googling (and then oogling) Rachel Nichols, I’ve come around to realize she is a great choice for Scarlett O’Hara. Scarlett is a weapons and martial arts champion and master, known for her use of the cross-bow and frequent romantic interludes and relationships with Snake-Eyes. As long as they give her red hair, I’m 100% behind this choice.

So while G.I. Joe is iffy in some respects (new stupid sounding name, questionable script rewrites, and a director known for cheese) the casting thus far has simply been inspired. Join the JOEs on the bigscreen August 7th, 2009.
