After recently adding New Zealand actors Temuera Morrison and Taika Waititi, Variety reports that Angela Bassett is the latest to join the cast of Green Lantern. Bassett will play Dr. Amanda Waller, a character from DC comics whose inclusion could mean that Bassett may turn up in other DC adaptations, namely the adaptation of Suicide Squad, where her character is a member. Producer Dan Lin has described Suicide Squad as "Dirty Dozen set in the world of supervillains".
MTV reports that two more have joined the cast: Gattlin Griffith (Changeling) as "Robert", and Brazilian model Marcela Duartee, who used her Twitter account to announce her casting.
I've just received script of my frst participation on a Movie.by Warner Bros.So Happy!Tomorrow flying to New Orl. to film w/ Ryan Reynolds.
Duartee blogged about her experience, which is a real linguistic workout for anyone without a working knowledge of Portuguese, but it seems that Duartee is playing the role of "Beautiful Girl". Duartee also posted a photo of herself with Reynolds from the set just in case no one believed her.
In related Green Lantern news, Blake Lively told Vogue that she may dye her hair to play the typically dark-haired Carol Ferris (who eventually becomes the villain Star Sapphire in the comics).
That's all under discussion. Anything is possible, just not the pink bodysuit, please!
Star Sapphire's costume is a rather aged color of pink, but as Reynolds has pointed out: The movie's not about the costume. Posted 03.26.10 by Ryan
