Cris Pine Confirms Green Lantern Negotians
There have been loads of speculation to who will bear the most powerful ring in the galaxy and become our favorite Intergalactic Cop, Hal Jordan. Last week it was reported Cris Pine was, and then was not offered the role. Today's news is that Cris Pine himself confirms only negotiations have begun.
Nothing official from the studio but Cris Pine himself has confirmed that only negotiations have taken place, No one is officially signed. Cris goes on to say:
“No, I had a meeting with [casting director] Pam Dixon and [executive producer] Donald De Line, but a meeting was all it was,” Pine told MTV News. “I have not been offered squat. I do not have the part and haven't read a script.”
Others rumored for the part are yet to be discovered stars such as Jon Hamm, Nathan Fillion and Sam Worthington. However we can strike one name of off this list Sam Worthington, as Sam will be busy fighting over sized Scorpions for the next few months in Clash of The Titans. Which could very well push Sam into the A list Actor category.
Out of the above list I hope Pine gets the role. Pine looks the part and has the acting chops to turn in a quality performance. Pine is rumored as not a fan of the source material. That fact will make a few fan boys upset but what we need to pay attention to is who will actually land the role. If the actor who gets the part also gets the character and turns in a good performance, then I can forgive that actor for not loving the comics.
