Adrianne Palicki talks GI Joe, The Rock, Bruce Willis and Lady Jaye

After the failed Woman Woman NBC TV series, Adrianne Palicki has joined G.I.Joe as Lady Jaye. In an interview with MTV this week, Palicki talked about her experiences on the set of Team Joe and talked about how she liked G. I. Joe when she was younger.

Is there less or more pressure as fans react to the “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” trailer.

It’s scary going into the shoes that have already been worn. We wanted to do something really unique and special. With such an amazing group of talented actors, you don’t want it to fall flat. How many people reached out, it’s unbelievable to hear the comments that they’re so excited, that the trailer is better than the first movie was. Just really cool reactions that you’re going, “OK, hopefully we don’t let you down.” I really don’t think we will. I think it’s going to be a really fun ride for everybody.

Working with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Bruce Willis wasn’t too bad either, Palicki adds.

“Dwayne is like a teddy bear. I know his fans probably don’t want to hear that. He might be one of the nicest people on the planet, genuinely. Very caring and very giving. Bruce is a kick in the pants. We get along really well, but he definitely came in during the middle of shooting for a week, added some flavor and left. But he was really fun to work with. I really enjoyed him.”

Palicki admits to being a fan of the ‘G.I. Joe’ comic books when she was younger, but her favorite character wasn’t Lady Jaye but Jinx!

“Lady Jaye’s a badass. I couldn’t really be disappointed with Lady Jaye. She’s the one chick in the boys club. She can hold her own. She doesn’t get the staff, but she is a weapons specialist. She has that going for her.”

The new Joe credits director John Chu for a successful production.

“Oh my God, it was a blast. Jon Chu, he’s this genius. The thing that’s so special about him is that he might be the biggest G.I. Joe fan on the planet, so that really came in our favor. He’s young and interesting and full of ambition. We really did things that were super exciting and super scary, and I really feel everything’s going to come out really, really well.”

Directed by Jon Chu, ‘GI Joe 2: Retaliation’ hits theaters on June 29, 2012 and stars Channing Tatum, Ray Park, Byung-Hun Lee, Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), Adrianne Palicki, RZA and Joe Mazello.
