    I guess Hollywood has run out of tv shows to make into movies and have turned to toys instead. What’s next, a live-action Cabbage Patch Kids flick???

    GI Joe was a cartoon as well.

    Sounds like a non-event.

    Mark is good, but I think Kurt Russell is ideal for the role. Remember Soldier?

    I wish New Kids on the Block would get back together.

    He was never in New Kids on The Block, his brother Donny was. Mark was Markie Mark and the Funky Bunch. waaaaaay before NKOTB.
    He’s a great actor, wouldn’t want anyone else to be GI Joe!

    Kids today have no appreciation of just how big NKOTB were in their day; the “Hangin’ Tough” tour in particular was a musical and cultural event that may never be topped.

    Jordan Knight is the greatest frontman in the history of rock and roll, but Danny Wood was my favourite NKOTB.
