Cooper going green?

05.06.2009

I'm not quite sure what to make of Bradley Cooper. He works in ensembles like HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU and he looks good in the upcoming laffer THE HANGOVER, but I'm not quite convinced that he can carry a movie on his own. However I'm just a lowly writer with bad breath, and Warner Bros. seems to disagree with me. Rumour has it that Cooper is in talks to star in the upcoming DC barnburner GREEN LANTERN, to be directed by one of the hottest directors in Hollywood Martin Campbell.

Chris Pine and Ryan Gosling were once rumoured to be playing the role of Hal Jordan, the ordinary man who is given the power ring and battery by a dying alien named Abin Sur to fight evil form across the land, but it looks like Cooper is currently the front-runner. We all agree that THE HANGOVER is poised for big things this summer, but is Cooper really the man for the role? You tell me.

He would be a great choice for Hal Jordan. He has the looks, charm and movie star charisma. I say he's the man for the job, nice choice.

And how is the Hangover poised to crash when the studio announced that it has already green lit a sequel?

The Hangover is poised to crash and burn. I don't think we all agree on anything with that flick.

Yes!

I really like Brad based on Alias and a few other roles. He'll make a great Hal!

Although I think Pine or Gosling would fit the role better, I have no prob with Cooper at all.

Common out!

People are getting confused here.

Common was up for Green Lantern in the Justice League movie, not the Green Lantern movie. Even then, Hal Jordan is the current GL in the comics AND the perfect origins story. Without him, you don't get Kyle, Guy, or John.

cool but....

I think they got the casting wrong as in which superhero he should play. I still think Common would be perfect for Green Lantern his size and his attitude make him a perfect superhero. I love Cooper especially when he was on Alias but I think he would be a perfect Capt America, hes got more of that look.

Bradley Cooper is awesome

Bradley Cooper is awesome! The best part about him is that he has starred in some great genre pictures on his way up - namely MY LITTLE EYE and MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN! Yeah dude, love B-Coop!

I like it. It's certainly better than some no-name TV actor.

I would accept Bradley.

However ideally I would have him play Guy Gardner not Hal Jordan. Sam Jaeger was DESTINED to play Hal.

I haven't thought about this more than a few seconds, but he could be a fine Hal.

But Jordan is an asshole that loves fucking blue, green, orange, and purple women, relishing in being an asshole... the asshole. In this I feel he could stroke for par.

Fans need to be grateful if this even greenlit.

Let alone with a good actor like Cooper playing GL and Martin Campbell ("THE" Bond director. "THE" as in besides John Glen, there's nobody better) directing him. That's all I got to say.
