Jack Black for Green Lantern?

  1. I don't care, Jack would own the part, fat or not!!!

  2. Only if he lost some wait.

  3. No he's to fat.

  4. I hate Jack Black, he couldn't play the part if he had Colin Ferrels body!

    Ok, I have only recently heard these rumors, and for a while I thought it was just a joke.....until I looked around on the internet. Aparently he IS actualy being considered for the part from everything I have seen and read. I don't have any real idea wether or not this is true, and I couldn't have imagined him playing this part at all until I thought about it. But in actuality the only thing that would stop him from being a good lantern is his body type. But if he lost some weight, toned up a bit, and threw on a reeeeeeealy cool costume that only Hollywood could aford.......I think he could pull it of nicely :D

    So now I would like to know what you, my fellow members of the Hype think, and have to say on this issue.

    Aswell, all Jack Black/Green Lantern Manips would greatly be apreciated here! :)

    I looked and looked, but couldn't find the thread, so I figured I'd make one and post a poll to count. I honestly couldn't picture it when I first heard about it, but then I thought about all of the things Hollywood can do........and it started to grow on me.

    Come on you guys. Green Lantern''s muscles are useless!!! Who cares what he looks like. Black's an interesting actor and I say they go for it if they're trying something unique with the Lantern.

    This news is atleast 100 years old. Black himself said he had a meeting about it, but it came to nothing.

    WOW, I so forgot about this. This is old. LOL

    But Jack Black is awesome, maybe if they put a comedy-ish twist to it.

    The difference being Tobey Maguire was actually a good choice for the role and, thusly, the ball was in his court whether or not he'd be in the film. WB isn't offering Black the role any longer. To stretch this topic out a year after it had been debunked is pointless and does nothing put pander to hysterics.

    Oh come on, lighten up :) as we all lnow ANYTHING is possible in Hollywood, I mean for christ sakes an unkown soap actor wearing a bad costume is playing Superman, why couldn't Jack play the Lantern? If they did it comicly, gave him a cool costume, and wrote a good script, we could be in buisness. not to mention the fact that we all know how Hollywood thows a little info our way, pulls it back, and throws it out again. I mean look at Spider-Man 3!!!!

    Jack Black playing Green Lantern would be a crime against humanity.

    Jack Black would be a good Guy Gardner. Besides, that, no way.

    Didn't they already do that to The Mask?
    And Batman?
    I think that's gone far enough.

    Weight, not wait. Idiot. And it's just ridiculous about the rumor. Real or not. He will not fit the part at all.
