The Hollywood Reporter is…um…reporting today that there are three frontrunners left for the role of Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern film. Those three individuals are: Bradley Cooper (Wet Hot American Summer), Ryan Reynolds (Waiting) and Justin Timberlake (WTF!?)
Is it me or does one of those names just not belong? Though it is well known that Geoff Johns is a huge ‘N Sync fan, this is just F’N ridiculous. I think I can safely say that if Justin Timberlake gets the nod then the “Green Lantern Movie Panel” at San Diego Con may not be ending in a huge celebration with DC and company patting themselves on the back for making such a brilliant choice. No, I don’t see things there ending well at all.
(UPDATE): Looks like Ryan Reynolds has landed the role. And comic fandom lets out a collective sigh of relief.
