Peter Sarsgaard in Negotiations to Play Villain Dr. Hector Hammond in The Green Lantern 2010-01-13 05:45:05

Peter Sarsgaard to Villainize The Green Lantern

The Green Lantern cast continues to expand. Monday's news had me a bit on the fence with Blake Lively announced as love interest Carol Ferris, but the latest casting news is a bit more exciting.

Peter Sarsgaard is in talks to play the villain in The Green Lantern. Though I never would have thought Sarsgaard would be up for a comic book movie, let alone as the villain, I'm pretty psyched on the choice. He's a great actor who can invoke a subtle sinister air if he needs to (An Education, anyone?).

Sarsgaard's character is Dr. Hector Hammond, "the pathologist son of a senator who . . . becomes infused with psychic powers when he discovers a meteor." He'll face off against Ryan Reynolds's Hal Jordan when filming starts in March.

Can you see Sarsgaard as a comic book villain?

I adore him! I think he's going to be great in the role. I do wish he did less villainous roles, but he's so darn good at what he does. I'd watch him in anything, really.
