Ray Stevenson Briefly Talks About Firefly's Fight Scenes in G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation
Click the jump to find out which G.I. Joe Firefly battles one-on-one twice in the film. Also, he talks about the challenges of filming The Three Musketeers in 3D.
G.I. JOE 2
YOU DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A GAP BETWEEN SHOOTING THAT (JAYNE MANSFIELD'S CAR) AND GI JOE 2: RETALIATION, IN WHICH YOU PLAY FIREFLY?
We did the last scene in the movie (JMC), which we finished at 2am one Saturday morning, and at 12.30 that afternoon I took a flight down to New Orleans to start on GI Joe 2. Literally out of the frying pan into the fire. I get to beat up The Rock twice, or I try to, and I get to play this cool, gnarly pyrotechnic guy.
THE THREE MUSKETEERS
YOU'RE ALSO PLAYING PORTHOS IN THE THREE MUSKETEERS
Yes, I'm going to be in London on October 2 for the premiere. I haven't seen it yet but it was such a good shoot. (Director) Paul Anderson and (Producer) Jeremy Bolt were just tremendous, and as was the whole cast.
HOW DIFFICULT WAS IT FILMING WITH 3D CAMERAS?
The only difference with the 3D camera is that the camera 'sees around you', so your fencing has to be absolutely on point; on target, so the whole discipline had to be stepped up for that, which was great because it made you keep great focus on set, but what a story to tell!
BONUS INFO FOR FANS OF HBO'S ROME
ROME WAS A GREAT SAGA WHICH SEEMED TO HAVE MORE LIFE IN IT. WERE YOU GUTTED IT ONLY LASTED TWO SERIES?
Yes, there was a whole lot more, and even HBO admitted publicly they made an error, an error of judgment pulling that series. But they took the decision, they pulled it and then it went huge. I can't complain. It's got me my access to get representation in the States, and it's been regarded very, very fondly. Everybody would have loved to have continued with it, but the decision was out of our hands.
The Rock and Firefly battling! Awesome! I'm shivering with excitement at the thought of two of my favorite G.I. Joe characters duking it out. Thank god the first movie, which was piss did not ruin Roadblock. Instead the soiled Heavy Duty, who we all know is the second rate version of Roadblock. And I never thought I would hear the word gritty attached to G.I. Joe after that hack Sommers put the Joes in bionic battle suits. Why not toss nipples on the suits too while your at it?
