Peter Sarsgaard

Dr. Hector Hammond, created by John Broome and Gil Kane in the early 1960s, originally appeared in Green Lantern (vol. 2) # 5 (March-April 1961). Unlike many supervillains, Hammond does not use an alias.

Hammond's abilities include genius level intellect, potent telepathic and telekinetic abilities, and he occasionally displays the ability to absorb and mentally redirect the Green Lantern's emerald plasma.

The other article had more info but first in wins I guess.
ecksmanfan - 1/12/2010, 3:42 PM
I tried =(

Good news though. The info I had on my article that was tossed was interesting. Sounds like we get Sinestro and this guy. Let me look the info up again.

I really hope Hammond is not the main villian in this movie it would really suck. Hopefully he is just in the background during the Earth scenes like Dr Connors in the Spiderman movies. Like some Douche bag that has a thing for Carol Ferris.
Gweedo - 1/12/2010, 3:44 PM
@ecks Yeah I wonder how far they will take the villian. Perhaps he will just be some dude. Don't know if they will get him that duplicate ring.
ecksmanfan - 1/12/2010, 3:44 PM
This is from
When Hector Hammond first appeared, he was a normal but genius, man who found a meteor that increased evolution. He used it on four scientists and weakened their wills so they had to obey him. He used their futuristic knowledge for his own purposes, and gave the scientists little credit, if any. Hammond gained noteriety and acclaim for 'his' discoveries which brought him to the attention of the Green Lantern, Hal Jordan. By chance, he was able to steal a duplicate power ring and dueled with Green Lantern. However, he lost their fight and wasn't seen for some time.

The next time he was seen, Hammond escaped prison and evolved himself through exposure to the same meteorite he previously discovered. Because his will was not crushed, he gained mental powers. He also made himself immortal, but at the cost of losing mobility throughout all muscles of his body including those responsible for speech

There's a few other storylines he was involved with but I have a hunch this is the direction they go.
Gweedo - 1/12/2010, 3:46 PM
@Swift Awesome thanks!

@ecks Thanks also.

Good information all around.
Diamond1995 - 1/12/2010, 3:47 PM
Legion is going to be the main villain, Hector is going to be a side-villain (just for the earth scenes)
LEEE777 - 1/12/2010, 3:49 PM
Oops you got a pic lol!

Still cant see it myself but he'll probably do good!

ECKS @ Happens to us all man!
LEEE777 - 1/12/2010, 3:50 PM
DMON @ He's not, theres a SINESTRO casting call man!!
ecksmanfan - 1/12/2010, 3:50 PM
@LEEE- Yeah. All good though. As long as we get to see the news!
LEEE777 - 1/12/2010, 3:54 PM
Yeah, i know how you feel though, i spend a half hour sometimes on articles just to get beat, just a race game lol.

Dmon - 1/12/2010, 3:55 PM
@ Diamond and Leee I know it will have Sinestro and supposedly Legion I hope so. I just said that because Hammond has always been my least favorite GL villian.
Frogman - 1/12/2010, 3:56 PM
LEEE@ i think they're saving Sinestro, hes gonna start off Green Lantern like the comics then lead the Sinestro Corps.

And at least we're hearing casting for this!
InTylerWeTrust - 1/12/2010, 3:58 PM
Nice! Some great casting to make up for the mediocrity of Lively!

Nice one Gweedo!
longbowhunter - 1/12/2010, 4:06 PM
Cool, Hector Hammond is gross!
LEEE777 - 1/12/2010, 4:17 PM
My fellow 777, like it lol! ; D

FROG @ Yeah man, your probably right!
RorMachine - 1/12/2010, 4:28 PM
Yeah Sarsgard is good. Cool, GL news is coming a ta fair pace now, some set pics to follow:)
dellamorte1872 - 1/12/2010, 4:28 PM
he's not a great actor, but he could pull it ioff well and LOOKS like a good choice to play HAMMOND
Set2Fallfirst - 1/12/2010, 4:34 PM
He would be a good senestro he is a good actor dellamorte he really is. Michael Madsen needs to be killawag
RedDevil - 1/12/2010, 4:36 PM
this seems fine but it's jus that Thor has literally converted me lol. The news on Thor is tremendous compared to GL which seems not all too exciting for me. Gl is like 3rd place for me in most anticipated films but once i see the casting for sinestro then i could go back to Gl fanboyhood.
dellamorte1872 - 1/12/2010, 4:58 PM
Diamond1995 - 1/12/2010, 5:09 PM
wow the first actual good-possible casting for this film.
slimybug - 1/12/2010, 5:26 PM
^ Agreed. The first good casting decision I've heard!
theartofoneness - 1/12/2010, 8:54 PM
YAY Green Team!

Phinehas - 1/12/2010, 11:41 PM
Good deal! I was thinking Thor when I saw this. LOL
Cool! He'll really have to get his nerd on for this role!
LEEE777 - 1/13/2010, 2:32 AM
We need some GREEN SCREEN!! ; D
airbeyonder18 - 1/13/2010, 8:55 AM
Who is he going to play? Simple, he's Guy Gardener. Come on guys, Sinestro? Please.
thegreek - 1/13/2010, 10:17 AM
Either way this is good stuff.... Awesomness

i think not making sinestro the main villian in this movie was a good idea, makes a good build up. Maybe throw him in there for a few minutes maybe :)
jimdrums - 1/13/2010, 8:52 PM
I agree with you UltimateSpidey, the GL saga is so rich that you could have at least 1 or 2 other good sequels if they are done correctly. Lets hope the acting is good enough to propel the story properly.

THR’s Heat Vision blog reports that Sarsgaard is in talks to play Dr. Hector Hammond, “the pathologist son of a senator who is seen as a disappointment in his father’s eyes” and eventually develops powers of his own after contact with a meteor. Those powers include mind reading and mind control, depending on the version of Hammond in question.
