KAROLINA KURKOVA PLAYS COVERGIRL IN G.I.JOE

Excerpted from www.modelsblog.info
Victoria’s Secret lingerie model Karolina Kurkova plays Covergirl in Paramount Pictures’ G.I.Joe movie but her costume couldn’t be less covergirl-ish.
 
Promotional photos show Victoria’s Secret angel dressed in ugly grey army fatigues – just when did authenticity get a role in action fantasy with a lingerie model?

No wonder some disappointment has been expressed by the boy-bloggers and fans of G.I.Joe.
 

It appears that another concern is that the casting of Dennis Quaid and the rubber outfits are signs that the movie will turn out a little camp.

 
But Ray Park, who played Darth Maul in Phantom Menace, does play Snake Eyes.
Paramount released a few photos of cast in black rubber costumes a while back, which met with cool-to-disappointed responses from online G.I.Joe fans.
 
The latest photos were of Sienna Miller on set in her black rubber suit.
 
There’s not a lot of compliments in the online community of potential theatre-goers.
Not that Paramount will be worried about one flop next year.  As Variety’s Anne Thompson reports in her blog, the studio raked in $1 billion on the back of a year of blockbusters including: Indiana Jones, Kung Fu Panda, Iron Man, and the No Country For Old Men, which won an Oscar for Best Film.
