Green Lantern – Peter Sarsgaard could be one of the bad guys

Posted by LiveFor on January 13, 2010

Peter Sarsgaard (An Education, Garden State) is in negotiations to play the villain in “Green Lantern,” Warner Bros.’ big-budget, Martin Campbell-directed film according to Heat Vision.

As we all know Ryan Reynolds is starring as Hal Jordan, the test pilot who finds a downed spacecraft with a dying alien who passes him a powerful ring, introducing Jordan to a interstellar police force known as the Green Lanterns. Blake Lively was recently cast as his love interest, Carol Ferris.

Sarsgaard will play Dr. Hector Hammond, the pathologist son of a senator who is seen as a disappointment in his father’s eyes. He becomes infused with psychic powers when he discovers a meteor.

This could be very good casting. Sarsgaard is another big name for the cast, he is a good actor and I think he will be able to carry off Hammond’s sleazy aspects quite well. It sounds as if the film may be following Geoff Johns’ recent origin tale in the Green Lantern comic book. If that is the case Sarsgaard may end up spending half the film playing a catatonic big headed freak.

Still no word as to whether Sinestro will be in the film yet. As he is a major player in the comic I imagine he will show up, but who could play him?

How do you feel about Sarsgaard playing Hector Hammond if he gets the role?
