According to The Hollywood Reporter. I’m not going to bash Timberlake as much as everyone else is – I like the guy, and I think he’s got the right attitude for the part, but not the right look. That being said, if they did choose him, I wouldn’t be devastated. All wrong for the part, in my opinion, is Ryan Reynolds. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of the guy, but I just don’t see him playing Hal Jordan. In fact, I almost see him more of a Kyle Rayner type character. Technically … if you think about it, they could get JT to play guy Gardner, Reynolds to play Kyle, and, my personal favorite, Cooper to play Hal Jordan. In theory. But they won’t, because no one in Hollywood listens to me.
Anyway, my money’s on Bradley Cooper – he’s hot sh*t right now in Hollywood, so the only thing that would keep him from getting this role is his availability. Besides, isn’t Ryan Reynolds supposed to play Deadpool? If he gets this role, which movie will get delayed?
Sorry fanboys…no Nathan Fillion (I was actually hoping for Josh Duhamel).
Green Lantern is still set to be directed by the uber-talented Martin Campbell.
