Tim Robbins to Play the Less-Than-Proud Papa of GREEN LANTERN’s Villain

     February 8, 2010


If you always thought that Tim Robbins could produce offspring bent on world domination, then you’re probably a far-right conservative.  You’re also correct about his character in Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern as Heat Vision reports that Robbins will play Senator Hammond, the disapproving pops of the movie’s villain, Dr. Hector Hammond, who will be played by Peter Sarsgaard.  Dr. Hammond has psychic powers and, in the comics, a comically-oversized noggin.  I imagine Senator Hammond’s purpose is to humanize Hector by showing that daddy issues may not be a good reason to become a supervillain, but it’s an understandable one.

Ryan Reynolds will star as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern with Blake Lively as Carol Ferris (aka, the love interest).  The film is set to begin filming this March in Louisiana where hopefully by then they’ll have cleaned up all the Saints Super Bowl-win confetti.  Green Lantern is slated to hit theaters on June 17, 2011.
