It was announced that Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova will play Cover Girl in new G.I. Joe live action movie.
Courtney A. Kreiger, better known as Cover Girl, is a fictional character from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero-themed toy line of the 1980s, appearing in both the comic books and the cartoons. She is one of G.I. Joe‘s tank jockeys, specializing in the Wolverine missile tank.
Prior to joining G.I. Joe, Cover Girl was a highly successful fashion model from Peoria, Illinois who graced the covers of countless magazines, but she found the world of modeling unfulfilling and joined the army to seek out new challenges in life. She felt very driven to master distinctly unfeminine traits in order to prove that she was not just a pretty face. [Wikipedia]
Karolína will join David Murray (Destro), Dennis Quaid (Hawk), Arnold Vosloo (Zartan), Channing Tatum (Duke), Sienna Miller (The Baroness), Ray Park (Snake Eyes), Rachel Nichols (Scarlett), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Heavy Duty), Said Taghmaoui (Breaker), Marlon Wayans (Ripcord), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Rex) and Byung-hun Lee (Storm Shadow) in the live action G.I. Joe directed by Stephen Sommers set to be released August 7, 2009.
