vote! for the Green Lantern

It's down to these three guys.

I dunno, I'm liking this Bradley Cooper guy for the role...

If those truly are the Final Three, I'll go with Bradley Cooper. I'm not a big Timberlake fan, and I'm still holding out hope that Reynolds will play the Flash (even though I know it's not very likely now ). And even if that never comes to pass, he's already got his comic book role in Deadpool.

Re: vote! for the Green Lantern

Can we have another option? Like, "Either one that's not Justin Timberlake?"

Or perhaps "Any person living or dead that's not Justin Timberlake?"

Seriously. I'd rather have, I dunno, Paul Lynde or Fred "Rerun" Berry play Hal Jordan than Justin Timberlake

Re: vote! for the Green Lantern

Bradley Cooper was great in The Hangover and like stated above Renyolds is working on developing Deadpool right now and as much as I've enjoyed his SNL skits I just can't see Justin Timberlake as Hal Jordan.

While he's no Fillion or Browder, I do like Cooper so I'm gonna go with him.

Re: vote! for the Green Lantern

Cooper... He's been getting noticed more and more as of late.

I liked Reynolds as Deadpool... before the craziness at the end of Wolverine, so as long as they fix that mess, then I'll be fine with him in that role.

But even so, that still doesn't mean he can't play Flash since it would be a totally different Sandbox and all... (Hopes for it.)

I'll go with Cooper, I suppose. Timberlake = FAIL.

Re: vote! for the Green Lantern

After seeing him in The Hangover, I think Bradley Cooper is definitely my pick of the three mentioned, which is admittedly a woeful list to begin with. Ryan Reynolds, while exuding the natural charisma required for Hal Jordan, is a bit too witty of a choice, and plus, he's already Deadpool! That and I think he'd make a great Flash, too.

Justin Timberlake? Why the hell is he even being considered, nevertheless in the running?! That would be just as bad as if Ashton Kutcher became Batman like all of those premature casting rumors circulating Batman Begins back in the summer of 2003.

But Cooper... He just has natural screen presence. He can be fun and playful when required, but I have this strange feeling he probably has the most dramatic gravitas out of those three. I can't quite explain it.

Cooper isn't my ideal choice for Hal, mind you. That would be Nathan Fillion. But out of those three mentioned, Cooper is the clear winner. I'm surprised there's even a contest.

I don't really know Cooper but he has the right look for Hal Jordon so I voted for him. I'd still like to see Ryan Reynolds as the Flash.

Re: vote! for the Green Lantern

That list sucks. I was hoping Chris Pine would get the job. But I guess out of the three I would go with Cooper. If JT is picked, I'm going to have to do the unthinkable and boycott a GL movie. I've proudly never watched a film with JT in it, and that record must remain unbroken, no matter how painful it would be.

I voted for Cooper, but Reynolds would be fine, too. If Timberlake gets the part I'm going to Hulk the fuck out.

I've waited for years for a GL movie and they want to put effing Justin Timberlake as the lead? Hell no! Cooper all the way.

I'm voting for Cooper just because he was on ALIAS.

As for Justin Timberlake . . . hey, he's better than Jack Black!
