Things are getting underway for the live action adaptation of The Green Lantern. The film will feature Ryan Reynolds as the title character, and will be directed by Martin Campbell. We haven’t been told much about the surrounding characters in the film including the villain of choice. Over at SpoilerTV, they got their hands on a casting call for Lantern, which features a few notable character names.
For those of you familiar with the comic, this will be a treat for you…
Here’s the casting call that was recently released for the upcoming Green Lantern film.
[CAROL FERRIS] – 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.
As you can see these are some notable characters from the Green Lantern Universe. Carol Ferris is a well known love interest in the comic, who’s had various reincarnations. Both Dr. Hector Hammond and Sinestro are supervillains in the DC Universe, which will make for an interesting combo on film. Abin Sur is a good guy and a member of the Green Lantern Corps along with Hal Jordan.
These are all great characters to draw from, but I wonder how they’re going to pull this off. Casting is just as crucial as the story, and I’m not sure what actors could fit into these roles. Any suggestions?
Who do you think should be cast in the supporting role in Green Lantern?
