Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively will face Peter Sarsgaard in The Green Lantern
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Hot off the news that Blake Lively will be playing Carol Ferris in THE GREEN LANTERN comes word that Peter Sarsgaard will be playing the film’s villain, Dr. Hector Hammond. Dr. Hammond is a Senator’s son that obtains psychic powers when he discovers a meteor. Ryan Reynolds, of course, stars as Hal Jordan, The Green Lantern. The film will be directed by Martin Campbell.
Peter Sarsgaard is one heck of an actor, but he has a bit of a feminine quality about him that prevents me from ever being intimidated or scared by anything he does. I’m not saying he can’t do it, I’m just saying that it’s going to take some work on his part to pull off the role of villain. Also, I’m not very familiar with this character, so maybe that’s exactly what it needs.
