While we sort of don't really care about "G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes" this writer likes these stories if only because it's an excuse to look up the elaborate back story some dumb toy solider was given. It's kind of amazing that somebody actually sat down and thought these out no matter how cornball they are.

While we sort of don't really care about "G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes" this writer likes these stories if only because it's an excuse to look up the elaborate back story some dumb toy solider was given. It's kind of amazing that somebody actually sat down and thought these out no matter how cornball they are.

Anyway, THR reports that Elodie Yung -- probably best known for her turn in "District 13: Ultimatum" -- is in talks to play Jinx in the upcoming sequel. So who is she? Get this. Jinx is a martial arts expert and Bryn Mawr graduate (lol) whose name is actually top secret (so how she got into school is beyond us) and was trained by a Blind Master in seven forms of fighting. She gets recruited into the G.I. Joe team by Snake Eyes.

Should all the ink dry, she will join Channing Tatum (Duke), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Lee Byung-Hung (Storm Shadow) and Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock) in the film that is gearing up to shoot later this year. She will next be seen playing the girlfriend of Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." Oh yeah, the other reason we like this G.I. Joe stories? Looking up the cartoon clips related to each character. Check out the below.
