So...I hear there's a Movie coming Out

A Green Lantern movie is apparently in the works. It has Hal Jordan as the main character, which pleases me to no end. I LIKE John Stewart, but even though he may be familiar to a lot of people through the cartoon, Hal will always be the REAL Green Lantern to me. No matter WHAT Guy says. And I like Alan Scott too, but let's face it, he'd be perfect in a Justice Society Movie. Can't you see a Justice Society Movie, with Alan, Jay, Ted Grant, and Hawkman? It would be seven shades of awesomeness.

I'd obviously kill for a Green Lanten movie that starred Guy Gardner, but even I'M not demented enough to think that it would necessarily happen. I would be thrilled to my marrow if he and Kyle and John were to show up in the aforesaid movie however.

There have been any number of names bandied back and forth, about who would be the best actor to play Hal. Frankly, I'm old, and I don't even recognize half of these young men. David Boreanz I know, because I watch "Bones".

But I was watching "House" the other night, and it suddenly occured to me that Wilson would be PERFECT for Hal! Or rather, Robert Sean Leonard, the actor who portrays Wilson. He's got the HAIR! And the big soulful brown eyes! And he's....he's pretty! He's a little too nurturing in his role as Wilson obviously, he could borrow a little of House's arrogance to portray Hal. But he's also perfect in his obsession with wanting what he doesn't have...only to disdain it, once he's achieved possession of it. That's Hal to a "T".

Who would YOU cast as Hal Jordan? Be Creative!

David Boreanz did Hal's voice in New Frontier. At one time, I would've thought he'd be perfect for Hal, but I think he's a bit too old now. That, and his characters are usually a bit too angsty.

Most of the actors I can think of for Hal are either too old or too baby-faced. I'd be perfectly happy with an unknown. After all, how many people knew who the heck Christopher Reeve was before he did Superman? And few people outside of rabid film fans knew who Christian Bale was before he was Batman.

Oh, and can you just SEE the other Earth Lanterns in cameos? :-) I've been carrying around this mental image of movie John and movie Kyle working together in an office at an architectural design firm -- when all of a sudden, Hal comes crashing in through one window (due to a fight he's in) and crashing out through another. Kyle says something about how being a Green Lantern would be "really cool," and John makes some snarky remark about Hal: "How could anyone give a power ring to that idiot?" ;-) Hee, hee!

My friend and I discussed this a while ago, and since then I've been convinced that Nathan Fillion would be a perfect Hal.

I mean, just think about it! No matter whether you go with yellow-brick-to-the-head Hal Jordan or actually-kind-of-smart Hal Jordan, he'd be perfect!

And he's really good-looking.

They can't do a movie around Guy Gardner; Moe Howard is dead.

Bryan Cranston of MALCOM IN THE MIDDLE fame.

I always thought Ben Browder from Farscape would make an excellent Guy Gardner.

I completely agree that Firefly's Nathan Fillion would be perfect as Hal. But I also think Gina Torres should be Wonder Woman.

Tell me she shouldn't. Really.

Ugh, I hate David Boreanz. But that's mostly because of Angel, (lame character, lame show until they brought Spike in).

Now Nathan Fillion, he would work.

Ha! Well, anyone who's watched Firefly knows that Nathan DOES have a great butt. ;-)

This Nathan Fillion person has been brought up frequently. I blush to admit that I don't even know who he IS! But if he has a great butt, then I'll go with it.

Oh SallyP, get theeself to the video store and rent out Firefly or Serenity. Nathan Fillion is the Captain.

Or rent out Buffy season 7. Nathan Fillion is the evil preacher guy. But he's less hot in that. mostly due to the homocidal hating woman tendancies.

I've also seen a little info about this upcoming movie, along with some sketches and stuff. To say that I'm wowed would be an understatement. I always wanted a Green Lantern movie and I think I'm finally going to get it.

Of course, a Flash movie would be even better, but since it's not in the horizon (well, the excecs keep saying they will next 2009, I still doubt it.

Sweet Merciful Crap! I just saw pictures of this Nathan Fillion person over at Sea's site, and he's...he's gorgeous.

Now I see what all the foofraw has been about.

He is indeed gorgeous...but that's not even all! You really have to see Firefly (Or Dr Horrible's sing along blog which you can see for free! http://drhorrible.com/mushortio.html!) and you'll see. He's got this great sort of manly swagger almost that's just very, very Hal.
