G.I. JOE: RETALIATION: Voice Actor Playing Cobra Commander Finally Revealed!
The other day I asked Jon Chu on Twitter who was voicing Cobra Commander? All he would say at that time was that one actor is voicing him and another actor is in the suit. So guess which actor that had guest roles in Justified, and Grey's Anatomy got the part?
If you said, Robert Baker, then you guessed correctly. He revealed the info in a recent interview with PopSugar.com (via generalsjoes) at the 6:25 mark in the video. Rick was a friend of Jon Chu in college and was asked to lend his voice for Cobra Commander for a temp track. The studio liked his effort so much that they asked him to be the official voice of Cobra Commander, and the rest is history as they say.
Jon Chu has just tweeted me that Luke Bracey is the actor that will be playing Cobra Commander behind the mask. So chew on that.
In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy, Cobra, they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe® characters. March 29th, 2013!
