Select Page spoke with Joseph Gordon-Levitt about the upcoming G.I. Joe: The Rise of COBRA motion picture, particularly about the recently revealed look for COBRA Commander.  The actor had some interesting things to say:

“That toy is not my face. It’s a mask. I like that I get to keep my face,” he insisted, explaining. “It has less to do with me and more to do with this character that I helped create. That’s more thrilling to me. It’s this thing that was born out of a creative, collaborative process between me and a bunch of other people that all worked on creating this character.”

He also mentions that COBRA Commander’s “look” was a big reason why he wanted the role to begin with:

“The way the character looks, that’s what ultimately convinced me to do the part,” he noted. “I saw the designs and drawings of the way they interpreted my character for this movie – the costume, the whole getup – and I was like, ‘Oh, wow. I get to be that guy? Fantastic. Sign me up. Please. Thank you.”
