Martial arts expert and upcoming Snake Eye player Ray Park sat down with the fellow geeks over at Geekscape and talked a bit about everything. From the upcoming G.I Joe to his inspiration growing up, as well as eventually landing an iconic character in a Star Wars film (Darth Maul), an X-Men film (Toad) and the possibility of leading an Iron Fist adaptation.

I never would have thought of him for Snake Eyes, but I know he'll be kick ace.

I've never interviewed someone before, so I probably shouldn't say anything, but I didn't think this guy did a very good job. Still it was lots of info I guess.

This went from due out in 2001 to just a possibility? That blows. Marvel needs to do a film with him, Cage, Elektra, Daredevil and Blade. And a few more. These origin stories usually suck like Spider PIG and FF. Just team them up and face them off against THE HAND again. Garner and Affleck deserve another shot as do all the actors who played THE HAND and M C Duncan.

Ray Park...there is a reason they keep giving you non speaking roles....stay away from Iron Fist unless Ang Lee makes it then its all yours.

All I know is that if they make an Iron Fist movie and make a game they should make it along the lines of Ninja Gaiden nex-gen games. That'd be kick ass.

That sucks, sites down so I can`t get to the article, but I like Ray Park. I don`t know if he has the acting chops for Iron Fist but then again, its not really that deep a role. I`ve never really seen Ray Park in a speaking role so I can`t judge, but I don`t see a problem with it.

Link is bad. I would have liked to have seen that also. I met him a few times at cons and he is pretty cool.

Hobbs what is wrong with his voice? Darth Maul spoke fine and was just an assassin who uses words but suffered from Lucasbonics. And Toad was great plus he did use different voices for each of those characters. I'd like to see him in a bad ass hockey film and not a SLAPSHOT remake either. Shit he would make great white Nick Fury.

what abot Ernie Reyes Jr. He is a badass.

why he is not getting this kind of roles, he is a great martial artist plus acrobat and he can act.

Ray Park is good, but he's not the only martial artist around...certainly not the best.
