Do you feel like Brenden Fraser kind of got the shaft?

Recommended Posts

Okay, admittedly it was a cameo. Still, the guy has has probably done more action movies than the entire cast combined. I also think he could at least got a core comic character than Sgt. Stone. Paramount and Sommers way underused him.

A cameo is just what we got. He was never intended to be a highlighted character. There's no other point to be made with the character as it is.

would ave to argue about Frazer being in more movies. Wayans has been acting for a long time, I'm sure his movie work equal Frazer's, in quantity not quality. I mean after all Wayans was considered for the part of Robin in Batman Returns before the part was written out.

Considering that he was not hired as one of the film's stars, I wouldn't say he got the shaft since he was just in the film for 1 minute. His character wasn't even a pivotal one and was never intended to be one.

 

 

The role could have been given to some unknown actor and Paramount would have saved some money. The guy was probably on set for one day total and got an easy check. Shaft isn't the word that comes to mind when I think about Frasier's role in the movie.

Seriously, I really agree. I mean, he does have 3 Mummy movies under his belt and I would rather have seen him be any number of characters from the movie. Hell, he would have been a better Duke.

Take out Wayans TV variety show credits, and he's a bit shy of Frasers resume of films.

 

 

I don't think Fraser should have been in G.I.Joe at all, if not as a more leading role. He practically smirked his way thru the entire role as Sgt. Stone. I didn't like it.

I will admit, I did not really mind it. I have a feeling that he is a really big fan and anted to be an easter egg. Which, I am fine with it. My big thing if that there were suposed to be more "Easter Eggs" but here were they?

They should have put Sgt. Slaughter in there. Why Slaughter didn't have a cameo in that movie called GI Joe (It wasn't a GI Joe movie) I'll never know?

The Sgt. Slaughter character is owned by the WWE/F/Q/whatever it is now. As far as I know.

 

But I think you have a point considering that the role was as small as it was I doubt the wrestling people would get all bent out of shape over a cameo considering they are pimping themselves out the sci-fi syfy channel now.

If your gonna get that technical you forgot all of Fraser's T.V. appearances. You mentioned all of Wayans and not even a nod to Brendan's re-occuring role on Scrubs. @smilepunch@

Im going to laugh when he gets a leading type role in the next one at all of yo all that can't stand him. I personally like him a lot. One of my fav actors, like a lot of his movies. I think he did great in the Mummies, so he can do this.

I was a slaughter fan as a kid, not so much as an adult, but he is well known among the casual joe fans.

 

They could have gotten around it in several ways. Just use the actor or someone who looks like him and not the name. When DDP couldn't include him they had someone who looked like him in the background of a frontline issue. The writer said something to the effect that he was just going to call him "Butcher"

That was one of my problems with it. This guy could have been the real Lt. Stone (not srg.) Or Slaughter, or even Beachead or some other character. It was another missed opportunity and added to the feeling of some new international, not what we knew Joe.

 

I understand they probably didn't want to give him a named status because then that could rule that character out for a sequel if he wasn't in for it, but that's just an argument for him to not be in it imo.

the could have shown him during the attack on the base, killing a viper or what not but its no big deal. the figure og him is great for customs, made a custom squad of cobra mercs with his body.

First off i have watched the movie a few times and still can't make out who he was supposed to be one guy calls his name but for the life of me it's to fast and i can't hear it so does anyone know who he was name wise?

 

And 2 i thought the movie was bad not just bad but fing awful. Where was bazooka and flint and quick kick gung ho just to name a few. And ripcord and scarlett i don't think so thats dukes chick in my eyes she always has been. And the whole him and baroness NO again i never saw them have any relationship in the toons. They may have in the comic but i wasn't into the comics

 

The best part about that movie was snake eyes. And how could they kill off storm shadow This movie was not even a joke it was just a fail in my eyes. I knew it would be but damn
