There has been yet ANOTHER addition to the Green Lantern cast. Jon Tenney (“The Closer) has signed on to play Martin Jordan, the father of Hal. It’s a role that will be featured in flashbacks of Hal’s youth.
Like his son, Martin Jordan was a test pilot at Ferris Air. During a test flight, Martin’s plane exploded and crashed. It was witnessed by dozens of onlookers, including young Hal. It becomes the one time when Hal feels true fear. It is also the fear that Hal overcomes in order to wield the Green Lantern power ring later in life.
Tenney joins Temuera Morrison, Taika Cohen, Tim Robbins, and Angela Bassett as a supporting player in DC Comics superhero film.
Green Lantern is directed by Martin Campbell an is due in theaters on June 17th, 2011.
