Casting Call For Green Lantern Movie

Here's your chance to be in the movie...or at least a way to find out more about the plot.


Have you ever wanted to be in a Hollywood movie?  Have you ever wanted to be in a Super Hero Hollywood movie?  Spoiler TV has posted the casting call for characters in the Green Lantern movie.  Unfortunately they don't list who to contact to fulfill your dreams of becoming an actor.  Maybe your agent will know.  
 
If you don't meet the requirements they're looking for, at least this gives us a little look at possible plot developments.

Green Lantern - Official Casting Call and Plot Details

[ CAROL FERRIS]
26-32, a smart and attractive woman with an MBA. She started as a pilot and now runs Ferris Aircraft. She is a work-a-holic...FEMALE LEAD

[ DR. HECTOR HAMMOND]
27-35, Character actor who is austere and impersonal, he is real "scummy." He is a pathologist and also the son of a Senator.

[ SINESTRO]
Mid-30s to Mid-40s, he is smart, tough, intimidating and in great physical shape.

[ ABIN SUR]
Mid-30s to mid-40s, he is a great warrior.


The good news is we can see they are remaining faithful by including Carol and Abin Sur.  And who doesn't want to see Sinestro?  When I was reading this, I thought, "Hey, I could try out for Sinestro!"  But then I read the "in great physical shape" part.
 
Does this get you any more excited about the movie?

I'm glad they're not starting with Sinestro as the main villain. I hope they end it with him being arrested and finding the yellow ring.

@G-Man:
 Does the movie call for the role of G'Nort?  That might be up your alley.  *I Keed, I Keed*
Don't worry, G, I'm with you on the physical aspect.      
I wonder who could be Sinestro?

That image of Reynolds isn't official is it?

Posted by johnny_spam

So GL is on the move hopefully at a normal pace. Johns is writing a Flash movie hopefully a Wonder Woman is not that far away. They should not have put Superman on hold or stopped or whatever.

I THINK its a computerized/doctored photo of Reynolds from Blade: Trinity but I could be wrong maybe its from the Wolvie movie, but otherwise I'd say no, it's not the official GL photo of him as Green Lantern.

What I really want to see are the visual effects in the movie. I really wonder how a Green Lantern's power ring being used would look like in live-action.

Is that Ryan Reynolds in the photo?  It's hard to tell because he's wearing a small mask that TOTALLY DISGUISES HIS APPEARANCE!

Epic yays.

Hector Hammond? I'm impressed...
Posted by Nahero

ok i can accept this

Posted by AngelFrost

I'd love to see Missy Peregrym as Carol Ferris
she's a great acress, Not too well known which is always a bonus. 
 Missy is known for her tall and sporty physique which is perfect for Carol :D

Oh if only I was older I could so play Sinestro, I'm such an ignorant and power hungry SOB

Posted by Bruce Vain

I would think they would want to get an established actor for Sinestro - Perhaps get Hugo Weaving for him. 
 
Hmm but what about Tomar- Re? I be down for trying out for that part & be down for wearing the prosthetics  to play him.

It can't be Ryan Reynolds. You see, Ryan Reynolds doesn't wear a mask like that mysterious stranger over there.

How do u enter this ?

They need to do something about that mask... Something about it just makes the whole costume look ridiculous.

Costume looks sharp and all the characters sound like they belong in the first movie.

Superhero movie. 
What I can't stand is when you take a hero IP and basically rip everything out that doesn't test well. Superheroes are kinda corny, and GL was way corny up until the mid 2000s, and even now it still gets way goofy. They can't run away from what it is, they need to just unapologenically soak in it.

I don't know... I feel like the mask is an acceptable casualty. I guess I'm afraid if the main character looks too silly people won't give it a chance. The rest of the costume looks pretty awesome though.

Still wondering how they will introduce the other Lanterns...

The guy as green lantern Hal Jordon must be Ryan Reynolds A.k.A Wade Willson from X-men Origins, I guess he decided to be Hal Jordon Instead of the Merc With A mouth A.K.A Deadpool! Excelsior!

@inferiorego:
well your head isss rather big, and you kinda look a little drooly in that pic
Posted by Moomin123

I think that Ryan Reynolds doesn't look right in a Green Lantern outfit. He looks like Gil Kane's Green Lantern, where as people wanna see Geoff Johns' Green Lantern. 
I can't wait for this film.
Posted by hdorman1

jeff goldblum would be a good sinestro
Posted by Mbecks14

is that image of ryan as hal an official one? it can't be right? because they havent even started shooting

Posted by NorsemanDGR8

the picture of Ryan is not official it is simply a fan edit so it is not completely finalized people. If that was the suit it would be wrong. Filming has not begun as it will start as soon as january 2010 along with Thor. So if Thor ends up with a picture similar to this fan edit of Ryan as GL then it is not official. Wait till 2010 comic con then we all can say that everything is official as the panels for Thor and Green Lantern ensue. I cant wait to meet the cast at comic con 2010 for GL and Thor. Just imagine Loki, Tom Hiddleston and Sinestro cough (Jason Isaacs) shaking your hand. Wow would that be great.

They couldve gotten Brad Pitt to play Hal Jordan and nobody would realize it's not Ryan Reynolds because of that mask that covers so much surface area of the face!

Hugh Laurie would be an awesome Sinestro, maybe a bit old, but who cares.

Posted by EdwardWindsor
