GI Joe: Destro Gets Recast

Chris Eccleston as Destro

The live-action GI Joe movie started shooting back in February.

IESB has reporting that unforeseen VISA problems have prevented David Murray from playing the villainous Destro. The studio found a quick last minute replacement (which is always a good sign for any movie production): Chris Eccleston, a British actor best known for playing Dr. Who and in America as Claude (the Invisible Man) on the NBC television series Heroes.

David Murray has has such groundbreaking rules as “Jumpy Thug” in Batman Begins (Where are you? HERE!) and Merlin’s Lieutenant in King Arthur. But the guys who hired him were pretty psyched up to have landed him for the part. You can't allow for the unknown!
