Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively has beat out the likes of Jennifer Garner, Eva Green, Diane Krueger and Kerri Russell for the role of Carol Ferris in The Green Lantern movie (working title: Ryan Reynolds in Spandex – The Movie). Apparently, the director and the producers originally wanted to cast someone older, but Blake’s
chichis game audition impressed them so much that they gave her the job. Somewhere in Downtown Manhattan, Harvey Weinstein is quietly weeping into his bowl of crushed double-stuffed Oreos and buttermilk while sitting on the toilet. Yes, I’m a firm believer that Harvey is the eating on the pot type.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Carol Ferris is an aerospace executive who hires cocky test pilot Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) who later becomes The Green Lantern, Yes, Blake is going to play an aerospace executive. This is almost better than the time Denise Richards played a nuclear physicist in a Bond movie. It looks like Megan Fox’s dream of playing a trigonometry professor could come true after all.
Shooting is expected to star in Louisiana this March. The Green Lantern will be out in theaters on June 17, 2011.
Hopefully, they will add subtitles to this shit, because whenever Blake talks it sounds like she’s got a bunch of oversized anal beads in her mouth (aka Tommy Girl’s second language).
