Adrianne Palicki To Star In "G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes"

According to Deadline, Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes. Palicki is perhaps best known for her role as Tyra on Friday Night Lights and for her brief stint as Wonder Woman in the recently shelved ABC pilot.

Palicki will join a cast that already includes Channing Tatum, RZA and Dwayne Johnson, who just signed on as Roadblock. The director of the first G.I. Joe film, Stephen Sommers, will not be returning for this installment and has since been replaced by Justin Bieber: Never Say Never director, Jon Chu.

Lady Jaye is a mainstay in the G.I. Joe world and is best described as the team’s covert ops specialist. She first appeared in the 1984 cartoon series, but she has since crossed over into multiple comic books and action figure lines.

G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes is set to hit theaters on August 10, 2012.
