First Look: Scarlet in G.I. Joe

scarlett_full.jpgActress Rachel Nichols is transparently attractive. Anyone who suffered through the final season of Alias or even those of us who took a flier on her first star vehicle, the quickly cancelled The Inside can see how beautiful she is. That the former model is a decent enough actress is a cherry on top.

Nichols is starring as Scarlett; the Joe deadly with a crossbow, Master Sergeant of espionage. And did we mention she’s a redhead. Knees buckling. The first redhead I’ve ever had a crush on.

JoBlo got their hands on the first official photo of Nichols as Scarlett and aside from the horrible outfit she looks like a dead ringer. But lets talk about her military outfit. It’s way too X-Men and Batman Begins to be taken seriously. I do think, it was the only logical choice, however, given the vast array of colorful G.I. Joe costumes in the comic and cartoon. But still, that’s the best they could come up with? It’s not even remotely as cool as Snake Eyes’s costume. Cuz, that was dope.

And yeah, we coulda included this in the previous post, but that would have robbed us of showing the goods. Also, I don’t like that they’ve muddled the photo by putting her in front of an essentially black and white background. Never a good sign.


G.I. Joe is directed by Stephen Sommers (Deep Rising, The Mummy, Van Helsing) and written by both Stuart Beattie and Skip Woods. The movie arrives in theaters on August 7th, 2009.
