Jon Tenney (TV’s “The Closer,” “Brothers and Sisters”) has signed on to play test pilot Martin H. Jordan, the father of superhero-to-be Hal Jordan in the comic book adaptation “Green Lantern” for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Superhero Hype.
Tenney says “Ryan Reynolds is the Green Lantern, and when he is a young boy, like 11, I’m his father. I’m Hal Jordan’s dad. I’m very excited – it’s incredible company” says Tenney who will shoot his scenes during his hiatus from “The Closer” in June.
Meanwhile comic artist Jason Palmer has caused a bit of a flutter over the weekend with a piece of costume artwork he did related to the film which he posted on his DeviantArt account.
According to The HD Room, Palmer says in regards to the art’s accuracy/status – “I can’t show the submitted art, but this is some extra art I did as a cover to the submission pdf, but was strangely not included in the submission. Oh well. For this art, I didn’t use costume designs or Reynolds ref that was provided by WB, so I can share it with you.”
Filming is currently underway through until August 6th in New Orleans.
