Over at Green Lantern Butts Forever, Sally recently asked her fellow bloggers who they thought should be Hal Jordan in the upcoming (HOPEFULLY upcoming) Green Lantern movie. Most respondents mentioned Canadian actor Nathan Fillion, best known for playing Captain Mal Reynolds on the TV series Firefly. (Sally, if you like cowboys AND science fiction, you really need to rent or purchase the Firefly DVD set!)
Nathan Fillion, eh? Hadn't thought of him, which surprises me because I rather like Nathan Fillion. But does he (or, rather, the type of character he portrays) have what it takes to really be Hal Jordan? Let's see ...
Reasonably handsome without being baby-faced?
Charming, arrogant, and completely cock-sure of himself?
Killer with the ladies?
Check. (There, Soup! I managed to sneak in a photo with Morena Baccarin, just for you. You know, if the casting rumors work out, this photo COULD come to represent Hal Jordan and Wonder Woman!)
Ooooooooh, check, check, CHECK!
Dunno that he necessarily gets hit in the head a lot, but based on everything else, it appears to me that Nathan Fillion would be an ideal Hal Jordan.
