Ray Park Is Snake Eyes!

Darth Maul is a ninja.

Meet your new Snake Eyes, G.I. Joe fans!

Yes, that's right -- Ray Park, also known as Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I, has been cast as the live-action version of the coolest plastic ninja of the '80s.

Slashfilm's Peter Sciretta broke the story, giving Park only the first of what will surely be many thumbs up. He's certainly got the physical tools for the role, as demonstrated by his appearances in Star Wars and X-Men, and more than a few fans have openly hoped he'd get the gig in Stephen Sommers' hotly debated adaptation of the popular cartoons and comics.

Park becomes the second member of the G.I. Joe cast, following Sienna Miller.
