Haley is Sinestro?

10.17.2009

   Jackie & Sinestro

UPDATE: as one of our schmoes pointed out down there, the folks from Collider got hold of Haley for a quick vid interview this weekend where he told them “you guys are out in front of it and I don’t know anything about it yet. If something comes up I’ll let you know.” Guess we'll have to wait n' see.

 

Holy mother of GOD I hadn't seen this one coming but if it turns out to be true I'm gonna have a geek overload!

Ain't it Cool News' head honcho Harry posted a rumor from a source he calls "pretty reliable" that director Martin Campbell is looking to lock the rest of GREEN LANTERN's main roles in the coming days, and the lead choice to play Sinestro would be none other than Jackie Earl friggin Haley. First Rorschach, then Freddy, and now Hal Jordan's nemesis - that guy is on fire!!!

Harry also mentions the possibility of a Superman cameo in the film, but who gives a crap about big blue - I wanna see Rorschach kicking Ryan Reynold's butt!!! What say you schmoes about this?

Extra Tidbit: If they cast Michael Madsen as Kilowog like for the FIRST FLIGHT animated film, I'm doing a naked dance of rapture! Be advised.

Haley might still do it

I talked to Jackie Earle Haley on the red carpet that night too. He said he hadn't heard about it, but he gets roles all the time by being suggested for them. He isn't ruling it out. http://bit.ly/1Z5jbP

You really don't know who Sinestro is? He's got to be the 3rd best comic book villain ever and thank God everyone will finally know it!

As for Jackie Earl Haley.....don't care. Watchmen sucked hard. They should cast Powers Booth to play him. He's the perfect choice.

Any top billing role for Haley is good news to me...I just hope after this he does another truly dramatic role a la Little Children. I fell in love with that guy after seeing that movie.

Seriously, am I the only one who thinks Mads Mikkelson would be perfect? I think the smarmy arogant way he played le Chifre in Casino Royale would be perfect for Sinestro. And he's got a physique to bring to the game, and he's not too old, no offense to Haley. Honestly, if I didnt want Mikkelson so damn bad, I'd like Haley for the role, in fact he's probablly now my next best choice....but I'm just married to Mikkelson. My thumbs go way down for Hugo Weaving.

Fuckin' comic book character retread. i hate that shit. This is now Reynold's THIRD comic character and Haley's second, all in a relatively close time frame. Annoys the hell out of me.

Eh, this wouldn't be the worst casting, but I'd much rather have Hugo Weaving.

Kilowog? That's a rather unfortunate name, isn't it?

KEEP IN MIND

Sinestro is huge. He's 6'7" tall so even though he is slim is still over 200 pounds. I would have liked Weaving or Oldman esp but Hailey is a good actor. Sinestro also fought Kyle and Hal in hand to hand combat at the same time.

I would have preferred Hugo Weaving, but I'm not complaining with Haley.

How is this a surprise? Haley has worked for WB before, they only cast people they've worked with.

HUGO WEAVING

would be my choice, he seems a better fit seing as Sinestro was based on DAVID NIVEN, can't see Haley pulling off that type

I like where this is going.

I really hope this happens. As my personal choice has no chance (James Remar). As for Kilowog? John Goodman hands down. Madsen sounded like the poozer was on crack, and for the 10+ years I've been reading GL I've always heard John Goodman's voice in my head.

nice! in comment to anothers, i've never seen sinestro as a big warrior type. He was the best, but not cause he could "fight" better. i always saw him as not the best physically, but he just wields the ring better than anyone else. and cuz he's evil. Sinestro has mostly been portrayed in that skinny look. not big at all.

Good choice, but not the best...

Haley would obviously do a kick ass job, but Sinestro should be a tall, built, warrior type. Aside from playing the evil side, he's also gotta play Sinestro as he was original: the greatest GL of them all before Hal Jordan joined...
