He definitley looks like him. The hard part would be convincing him to do another sci-fi movie, but it could probably work.

While he is closer to looking like Hal then Ryan Reynolds I still think he doesn't quite make it.

@dernman: Why say that? When I was watching him in the Star Trek movies I thought his personality as Kirk should be exactly the way Hal should act.

Yikes this isn't a good fit. Aside from the fact that I don't think his acting skills match well for the role, he doesn't look like Hal. If we're being honest he's way too short to be Hal.

Yeah, I can see him as Hal.

I don't like the pick. I feel like it'd just end up coming across as Captain Kirk with a Green Lantern ring. I also don't think he looks much like Hal.

I can't see him playing the role and actually looking like Hal.I can see Nathan Fillion better in the role.

@tdk_1997: Nathan's apparently really hard to work with. Like sometimes on the Castle set he just doesn't turn up for work. Tbh I wouldn't want to work with him. Chris is meant to be awesome.

@batpala: Chris Pine has always seemed like a cool guy to work with or to know but I can't see him as Hal Jordan.He just doesn't look like him for me.While Fillion may be hard to work with but if they find the way to make him easier to work with than everything can turn out just fine.

@tdk_1997: It would have been better when he was younger. Last time I saw Fillion was in that Percy Jackson movie where he was looking a bit long in the tooth and could stand to lose a few pounds.

@dernman: I haven't seen anything new with him.But I think if he receives an offer for a Green Lantern movie I think he will try to get in shape.

I certainly hope so. I'd hate to see him squeeze into that type of costume carrying extra padding.

These and Nathan Fillion rules but I highly doubt DC/Warner would cast him :(

I can do with Chris Pine, I wouldn't mind Bradley Cooper as well.

Liam Hensworth would be my pick. I love Fillion, he did an amazing job voicing Hal..but I'm afraid he just doesn't have the look. And he's to old.

Pine, I like him. But he doesn't fit as Hal either. Though I wouldn't mind him as The Flash, my only argument against him is the height. But then again Tom Hardy is 5'8 and really pulled off Bane without you really being able to notice that.

I can't imagine Liam Hemsworth as GL. Any fan art?

@sethysquare: I haven't been able to find any fan art for Liam as Hal..but I myself can see it. He's got a strong jaw, a tall lean physique at 6'3, he's got the clean cut brown hair. He's also a very good actor imo. Not saying he's a shoe in for it, but I could see it working.

I wouldn't mind giving him a try. Maybe i'll chance upon some fan art and I'll share it here.

I can dig it. Seems to fit the personality fine, based off Star Trek.

I could get with it. As long as he doesn't just play Kirk with a power ring.

I think it'd be a lot tougher for him considering he's already played Kirk in 2 movies.

i'll say that fan made stuff doesn't convince me someone's right for a role. it's about the actor's ability to translate the character on screen. Chris Pine doesn't cut it.

Sounds cool, I want Chris Pine to stay at DCEU since he was great at WW, however they would probably have change his backstory to make him a descendent of Steve Trevor.
