G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA
Actor Joseph Gordon-Leavitt talked to IESB about the action figure photo floating around. "That toy is not my face. It's a mask. I like that I get to keep my face," he said. "It has less to do with me and more to do with this character that I helped create. That's more thrilling to me. It's this thing that was born out of a creative, collaborative process between me and a bunch of other people that all worked on creating this character. The way the character looks, that's what ultimately convinced me to do the part. I saw the designs and drawings of the way they interpreted my character for this movie -- the costume, the whole getup -- and I was like, 'Oh, wow. I get to be that guy? Fantastic. Sign me up. Please. Thank you.'"
