Eccleston must have the mortgage due.....or he needs to fire his agent.

Surely he should still be embarrassed about Gone In 60 Seconds. He belongs in Hollywood as much as Americans belong in the Premiership.

Being a big Action Force fan as a child (english name for GI Joe) I really want this to work, however with the amount of B list shit attached to it or in Eccleston's case (A list scumming it) plus with Sommers capacity to make gold look like shit, then frankly I'm not hopeful.

Ecclestone has realised that he has to lower his standards and to get chosse more often over other similar actors (Paddy Constantine after all did Hot Fuzz so he has a fun side his normal hardened, gritty persona we normally see).
Ever since he did Dr Who he has done Heroes (with the worst girly hair in the flashbacks), the crap Dark is Rising and now this. He must be buy a huge LA house now he lives there.
Oh and GI Joe will be crap - it's directed by STEPHEN SOMMERS after all.

Good news I think. As I mentioned in the other G.I. Joe threads, I don't think it's a particularly good idea to use Destro in the film, but I'm pleased to hear that an accomplished actor such as Eccleston is playing the part, rather than some unknown douchebag. Could make the character worthwhile, he should have no problem with the Scottish accent either.

Why should he be embarrassed? He's getting paid.

The entire reason he left Dr Who was of his fear of being typecast. So it sounds like he is one of those actors who aspires to retain some choice and integrity in the roles he plays.

That's why I'm suprised he's chosen such hollywood fluff. Dark Rising aside (you can be forgiven once for a big paycheque, and once only) His only other main foray into big budget land, as far as I can see, is Gone in 60 seconds. Mind you, who would turn down a bit of scene chewery bad guy action, even if it is crap.

Heroes is an excellent bit of work from him. Small role that could be expanded and, if it bombs, it's only a TV show. So no risks there.

Therefore, GI Joe beggars belief. He'll be in High School Musical next.
