First shot of Peter Sarsgaard shows his Green Lantern role might have gone to his head

05.10.2010

Behold, the first spy shot of Peter Sarsgaard in makeup as the villainous Hector Hammond in GREEN LANTERN via IESB. Though not in costume, we get a clear look at what the literal interpretation of Hammond’s giant head will look like onscreen, and he looks like a cross between Sloth from THE GOONIES and a clan member of THE HILLS HAVE EYES.

I’m a bit skeptical, but Hammond always looked pretty freaking ridiculous in the comics too. Check out the comparison shot below.

Extra Tidbit: Yes, Sinestro is also in the film, and has a similarly bulbous head. What's the deal with these guys?

Looks promising.

I'm down so far. I'm more worried about Sinestro and Hal. I hope Kilowog shows up and looks cool, he's always been my favorite.

I think this was actually when he was on his way to the make-up trailer.

Dude...

You cannot rock a mullet with a forehead that big. That ain't a forehead, that's more like a fivehead. He looks like an 80's porn star with a 'stache like that. When the director asked you "how big is your head?" I think you misunderstood.

@Nite Owl - I didn't know Bob became an actor! lmfao

REMINDS ME OF THE GUY IN ROBOCOP WHO GETS RUN OVER

Who knows what it will look like in lighting and costume to early to judge looks creepy though and at least its not the giant head and tiny body version.

Hector's Appeal

In how perverted and obsessive he is. That's why he's an interesting character. Plus, this will be the closest thing that we get that to The Leader (Hulk) so I don't mind.

Ok, actually believable...

Looks more like Eric Stoltz from "Mask". A little Elephantiasis mixed with super-genius...sure, WTF, I'll buy that for a dollar.

because he's stil a Green Lantern during the origins of Hal Jordan. And that's the whole point of his character: Sinestro's fall.

I hate to be the one to say this but... and am I the only one who thinks not ALL adaptations should be hyper-loyal to the source material? Sometimes change works! Comics and cartoons have the ability to not look cheesy because they're,well,comics and cartoons. Movies,on the other hand,have real people.I LOVE superhero movies, but that thing up there looks effin' ridiculous! Sometimes a lil' tweaking does a lotta' good. The Joker, anyone? Whiplash? Wolverine?

there is a part of me who wants the Wolverine costume from the comics. I think if they could 'reboot' x-men now, they would do it. Singer didn't have a templete to go by back with the first X-Men.

Well, Wolverine in his original costume would work if the movie was stylized like Watchmen. But in a normal tone, how could they possibly not make that look cheesy? They tried their best with Superman and went the "loyal" way...look where that got them. Like it or not, Supes looks like a joke standing in public like that. Joker does not, and neither does Batman, Wolverine, or even Whiplash, to name a few.

"What is....does your face have a pelvis??!?"
"I'm beautiful on the inside!"
"Yeah, but, Rocky, there's a limit..."

I'm sorry, but that's all I can think of when I see this picture.

Oh and apparently his head will get even bigger.

He ain't getting any from Maggie in that make-up, I can guarantee that.

I'm not worried in the slightest, he looks like his comic book counterpart.

First thing that came to my head when I saw the picture was "Holy Shit". The picture does look accurate to the one on the bottom and I am glad that they are staying so authentic to the material. Like I said, this movie is going to be so 'effin good and I can't wait to see Reynolds kick some ass with his magical ring.
