JT is Green Lantern?

07.09.2009

Justin Timberlake When a rumor crops up that pop superstar man candy Justin Timberlake is looking to play the titular superhero in the upcoming comic adapted GREEN LANTERN, it's usually from a British tabloid looking to score some easy hits with a "what the fuck?" bullshit rumor (Cher as Catwoman, anyone?). But when grand daddy geek Harry from "Ain't It Cool News" is the one doing the rumor mongering, it's not quite as ridiculous. What's more, Harry's quick to point out that J. Tims has screen tested for the role and is being seriously considered, not that he's already signed on the dotted line. Still, though, he really shouldn't be a serious contender. No offense to Timberdog because he's proven himself to be quite a capable actor but this role needs someone who won't overshadow the character. What do you guys think?

Extra Tidbit: Timberlake's middle name is Randall.

For Fuck's Sake..

Please not Timberlake. When I saw the initials in the headline, his was the only name I could think of. And sure enough.

I don't have anything specific against the dude, but other than name recognition, why cast him? He doesn't at all scream "Hal Jordan" to me.

NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOO!

I would rather see John Goodman try to pull this roll off than to watch the agonizingly terrible performance that will come out of JT's abilities. Yes he can 'act' and I am not saying he can't, but this roll needs soooo much more than a handsome smile! Once again I am saying within a few days, this screams for a C'mon Hollywood article!

Nathan all the way please. Well...not in the sexual sense but in the "playing Green Lantern" sense. Let him finger the power ring....well, not in the sexual sense. In the "Green Lantern ring" sense. Nathan should erupt forth....well, not in the sexual sense. In the "Green Lantern movie as a vehicle" sense. Nathan should penetrate the mainstream...Nathan should insert himself into the public [link] should blow any doubters off......Nathan should erect his tentpole movie......ARGH! *BOOM*

What the fuck?

Am I the only one who just wants to smack this dude in the face whenever he says something? Everything out of his mouth is in this gangsta type of "down and cool" accent yet his voice is so high pitched that it just sounds ridiculous. I get it.. he can sing to some good beats and dance around stage. He was ok in Alpha Dog I guess.. but really?

He can disappear from Hollywood forever and I think 6 people would notice.

personal opinion

personally... i think justin is a great entertainer... i've always been happy with whatever i've seen him in, he's great at singing and dancing obviously, and he's actually quite good at acting (alpha dog and southland tales, dunno if black snake moan would really count, but he fucked alright lol) and he's also a funny cunt, all the skits he's done etc.

Now, cause I like him, I WANT this to work out, hell it does sound crazy, and HELL, who would ever cast JT as a superhero in there film. But

Lets face it, with some of the abysmal superhero films out there, i'd like to give this a chance and see what they can do.

Here's Who

Nathon Fillion.
He needs something to project him onto the A-list and this could be it. He's got a great screen presence, a cult following, and great humor. There was a fake trailer made for Green Latern on Youtube starring Fillion. After I saw it, I was convinced. Look it up.

I don't want Justin anyway near this movie. The dude can sing and he is good at it but he doesn't need to be in this movie. He is not Hal Jordan! The guy should stick to singing cause his acting is not all that great

I was actually kind of pissed when I first realized Justin Timberlake was a talented actor, because I couldn't complain about him being a talentless tool anymore. However, I think Omar nailed this one. It doesn't matter how good of any actor he might be, his name comes with too much baggage attached to it and would isolate a ton of potential viewers.

Slimbo is right, he is likeable, but he's no green lantern.

Anytime I see him, whether he's acting or not, he's got that gangsta southern accent.

Hopefully the guys who are doing lantern have better judgement.

I thought he kicked ass in Alpha Dog, but this would not be a good role for him. Sorry JT, guess you'll just have to settle for having sex with Jessica! YOWZA!!!

While some of the stuff he did for SNL was decent compared to the trash it is rolling out now, JT is just a sucky actor.

We need someone serious to play the role.

(Btw, I wonder how JT is taking MJ's death, he idolized the man and owes his entire career after his boyband days to MJ)

While I still would like to see Nathan Fillion get a chance at a role like this, I could really see Bradley Cooper from the Hangover as GL. Seems like the perfect way to take advantage of the cred that movie has generated.

Hopefully a rumor

Like I like JT and all but like him as the great GREEN LANTERN the strongest of all DC super heroes. NO WAY like I will abandon all Comic book movies if this happens. Like you can fuck up Superman but dont you dare Fuck up Green Lantern. But if this is a Rumor I feel that I would make the perfect candidate for Green Lantern if any casting directors are looking here message me through my Joblo and we can start from there Thank You.
