Wu-Tang Clan rapper/producer-turned-actor RZA could play a martial arts expert named the Blind Master in the G.I. Joe sequel, says MTV. The character trained Joe commandos Snake Eyes and Jinx.
D.J. Cotrona, who appears on the TV show Detroit 1-8-7, is another potential new face. RZA and Cotrona are both in negotiations to be part of the movie, which will be directed by Jon Chu (Justin Bieber: Never Say Never).
If it happens, it will be RZA's most high-profile pic. He's previously appeared in Due Date, Kill Bill, Funny People and American Gangster. He just finished working on the martial arts movie The Man With the Iron Fists with co-stars Russell Crowe and blaxploitation icon Pam Grier.
