Here’s an odd casting rumor for the title character of WB’s Green Lantern project. According to Latino Review, Sam Worthington was unavailable due to his role in Clash of Titans, Ryan Goslin passed on the role and Emile Hirsch also just passed:
So the producers are looking at every young up and coming actor in Hollywood” INCLUDING a name I at first found peculiar, but it grew on me and I wanted to share it with you guys.
Yelchin has certainly landed some high profile roles recently — Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation and Chekov in Star Trek — but I can’t quite picture him in the role of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern.
Green Lantern hits theaters on December 17, 2010.
