While some actors can’t even get their mail without being spotted, there are others with the exact opposite problem: costume actors. It’s strange that someone can play such iconic characters as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man or Michael Myers and then completely go under our radar. For example, the following actors, mostly known for their costumed characters, have also appeared unmasked in other roles you might not have even noticed…

Well, guess it didn’t look as good as we all thought it did. THR reports (via /Film) that Paramount has decided to push its upcoming G.I. Joe sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, from its summer release date (one that’s barely more than a month away) in favor of a 2013 release date that will afford it less competition at the box office. Oh, and what’s that? Yeah, they’re also post-converting the Jon Chu-directed movie to 3D. Ugh. The film, once set to open on June 29, 2012, will now open on March 29, 2013. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis, Adrianne Palicki, D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, RZA, Joseph Mazzello, Elodie Yung, and Walton Goggins and, despite following the money-making but underwhelming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA, has long looked promising. While an unexpected post-conversion 3D job rarely instills confidence in people, announcing one when the film was set to open in just over a month is quite shocking.

GI Joe: Retaliation

You can keep your Avengers. You can have your Expendables. You can even take your Ridley Scott directed space operas and your Christopher Nolan-crafted epic conclusions — alright, so maybe The Dark Knight Rises is taking it too far, but you get the idea  — for my money, the most macho film to be released this summer is the sequel to G.I. Joe, from the director of Step Up 2: The Streets, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Step Up 3D. Surely, I jest, but we all saw that badass trailer. If it proved anything, it’s that the key to a great sequel is to kill off most of the characters from the first movie, dash in a little bit of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wielding a ridiculous machine gun, some Bruce Willis wit, a redubbed version of “Seven Nation Army” and an aerial ninja fight. Admit it: none of that doesn’t sound awesome. Adding to the machismo flood that will undoubtedly come when G.I. Joe: Retaliation hits theaters on June 29 are these 9 character posters, featuring some new, some old and all quite dangerous folks from the upcoming sequel. It’s bound to be a very sexy, over-the-top affair.

Channing Tatum is back as Duke, Ray Park is in as Snake Eyes, and Lee Byung-hung is reprising his role as Storm Shadow, but that’s about all the true connective tissue you’ll find between G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and its sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Plus, from the looks of the trailer, its Dwayne Johnson as Roadblock that will really be leading the team. Behind the scenes, Joe is being led by a new director in Jon Chu and new screenwriters in Zombieland scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. It’s truly a brand new team. But the trailer speaks for itself with pyrotechnics. Check it out for yourself:
