G.I. Who?

This is only tangentially related to Doctor Who, but Christopher Eccleston, who played the Doctor for the first season of the revival, will be in a movie about... G.I. Joe. It's difficult to overestimate the amount of suck this movie will contain, but having Eccleston in it will mitigate that somewhat. He's a terrific actor. His appearance on "Heroes" was cool, though he was totally wasted in "The Seeker", which was awful.

Still, there's not much chance I'll go see it. And I had a G.I. Joe when I was a kid. Maybe if they can get Billie Piper to be in it too...
