Filming for Martin Campbell's comic adaptation Green Lantern has been relentless since mid-March; with the movie's cast and crew monopolizing many areas of New Orleans, Louisiana. With the exception of several of the alien Green Lantern Corps members, the film's cast is major roles have all been set in stone. In fact, most of the key actors involved in the production have already had time in front of the cameras.

The Hollywood Reporter recently revealed that actor Mike Doyle has been cast for the role of Jack Jordan, the older brother of Hal Jordan (portrayed in the film by Ryan Reynolds). In Green Lantern comics mythology, Jack is not only Hal's oldest brother, but his strongest opposition in the family. In later stories, Jack became the District Attorney of Coast City, where the Jordan family had grown up.

Mike Doyle is an American actor, screenwriter, director and producer. His most notable roles to date have been a six-year run as Forensics Tech Ryan O'Halloran on Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit and Adam Guenzel in the prison series OZ.



Here is an excerpt from the detailed Green Lantern movie synopsis, which was revealed here at CBM exclusively: 'In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.'

Green Lantern will continue filming through late August, 2010; and is scheduled for theatrical release June 17th, 2011.

Which brother "died" in Coast City before it was retconned? Was that Jack? I can never remember.

This is good! Jon Tenney and Mike Doyle look kinda alike. The Jordan family will have some similiarites and thats goooood! No news about who will portray James "Jim" Jordan or is that role already cast? More Green Lantern news is needed!

Beware my power!
Joker08 - 6/28/2010, 7:26 AM
@Angelus: I agree. Reynolds too, the three of them actually look like relatives.

This guy's a good character actor.

They use him a lot on TV cuz he's that
good!

This movie is shaping up all right!
Although I think they could have chosen
a better Carol Ferris.
LEEE777 - 6/28/2010, 7:35 AM
Don't know him, looks cool enough tho.

DDD @ I think we could all of found a much better FERRIS than [frick]ing BLAKELY, damn she sucks at acting, hopefully she's taken a good few lessons! : P
TANKGIRL - 6/28/2010, 8:09 AM

DDD - 6/28/2010, 8:17 AM
Looks good TANK@ but looks can be
deceiving!

She's on Gossip Girl and that thing is
so bad it gives me a headache to
just see the commercials for it!

Just another 90210! And 90210 sh!t
is like the anti-christ to me!
lol
DDD - 6/28/2010, 8:20 AM
Heck I'd jump Blake's bones but it
doesn't mean she's any good for CBM
movies! Gawd I hope she doesn't drag
this movie down the sewer-hole!

But man, she looks good TG@!
TANKGIRL - 6/28/2010, 8:22 AM

Blake is a hottie ... She was the hot chick in Accepted and that movie was funny as hell
InTylerWeTrust - 6/28/2010, 12:04 PM
Looks like a Jordan, haven't seen him act though.
UncleDrew - 6/28/2010, 12:19 PM
He's a great choice Jack Jordan. As for Blake Lively, I think she'll do good as Carol Ferris if not they can just do what they did to Katie Holmes in the Batman series and replace her.
