Gregory Smith as Hal Jordan?

The latest Green Lantern movie casting rumor involves THIS guy, actor Gregory Smith:

Gregory Smith is an American/Canadian actor perhaps best known for playing Ephram Brown on the TV show Everwood. Like Christian (Batman) Bale, he's a former child actor who's gone on to do quite well for himself as an adult actor.

Gregory Smith as Hal Jordan, huh? Well, I admit that he's cute -- but, GEEZ, he still looks so YOUNG to me, and still a bit baby-faced. I always imagined Hal as looking a bit more rugged, and like he was in his mid-30s. (The average age of most "new" test pilots is allegedly between 32 and 35.)

One interesting note about Gregory Smith, though -- He currently holds the record for the LONGEST on-screen kiss in American cinema history: 5 minutes 57 seconds, in the movie Kids in America (2005), over the film's closing credits.

Hmmmmmmmm ...!

Hmmmmm...he's cute of course, but a bit on the callow side for me.

I like it.
I think he could pull that off.

Cue the miriad fan-made posters of him wearing a pixallated photoshop green mask!

Too teen idol-y. Hal Jordan isn't dreamy. Hal Jordan is just macho and cocky enough to make his moderately above average looks work for him. This kid could play Kyle.

I agree with Dreadful Rauw. He could play Kyle, but no way he could interpret Hal. He looks like a cute kid and that has nothing to do with Hal Jordan.

Hmmm, hadn't thought of that. He DOES kinda remind me of Kyle!
