Ryan Reynolds Is Hal Jordan. Feel My Excitement.

In Celebrities, Film on July 11, 2009 at 10:23 pm

Ryan Reynolds has been cast as Hal Jordan in the new Green Lantern movie. I understand that he’s becoming more popular but… meh. He’s so very, very meh. He just doesn’t feel like Hal Jordan. There’s something in the shape of his head (and how it looks disproportionately big on his body) that has never sat well with me.

Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto and Justin Timberlake also did screen tests for the movie but Reynolds ultimately got the role. And again, none of them particularly feels like Hal Jordan and they don’t really look like any of his comic or cartoon incarnations, do they?

This casting is puzzling.

Is That How Biopics Work Now?

Jade Goody’s biopic is being discussed before she’s even in the ground. Michelle Ryan and Ashley Jensen are competing for the role. Apparently. The Mail is the one saying it, so a grain of salt with this story, please.

No disrespect to the dead and all, but she was basically a classless chav. She was ‘famous’ (and I use that term so loosely) for being a right dumbass on national television. She then exploited this stupidity to extend her 15 minutes of fame with a hair salon that failed, a perfume brand and an autobiography. I accept that she donated money to charity but… hundreds of people do that. She would have dropped off the radar completely if she hadn’t gone on Celebrity Big Brother. And I don’t accept her bullshit apology.

How interesting could a movie about her life possibly be?

Bleh. Whatever. I don’t care. There will be no more reporting on this subject. I never liked her.

WHAT? OMG. GREEN LANTERN WHAT?!OMGOMGOMG

CHRIS PINE MIGHT BE PLAYING HAL JORDAN?!? WHAT? OMG. SOMEONE CONFIRM THIS! IF THIS IS TRUE- OMG. WHAAAAAT. OMG. HA. WHOOOOOO!

Sorry about that. I just- it’s Hal Jordan. I. LOVE. HAL. JORDAN. I am unrepentant, I am maniacal. I love that fictional man. And Chris Pine. AUYSJHSDGAGV. VERY MUCH YES. I don’t give a damn about acting ability, and DC is never going to get it right anyway- so I’ll just enjoy the hotness. Chris Pine is just sooooo pretty…

Don’t look at me like that. I’m a 17-year-old girl. I’m allowed to just scream and flail like that in the middle of the night because Chris Pine may be playing Hal-freaking-Jordan. OMG, this is amazing. I hope it’s true.

Found that completely by accident, as well- literally straight after I posted the last entry. I’m quite lucky. Or unlucky, as I am likely to obsess now.

Also: who is freaking stoked about the Star Trek movie? MEMEMEME. I’ve never managed to sit through an entire episode of Star Trek. But I’m going to force myself to watch at least one before the movie comes out. Something good.

Also: GREEN LANTERN MOVIE. GREEN LANTERN MOVIE.
