Geoffrey Rush, you have the ability to overcome great fear. Welcome to the Green Lantern Corps!
Geoff Johns, DC’s Chief Creative Officer and resident Green Lantern guru, has announced on Twitter that Australian actor Geoffrey Rush will provide the voice of Green Lantern Corpsman, Tomar-Re in Green Lantern.
We caught a few glimpses of the notable Xudaran in the GL trailer, but had not received any word on who would be lending their voice to the beaked alien. With Rush cast in the role, Tomar-Re is getting the royal treatment. Geoffrey Rush recently won acclaim (and a third Academy Award nomination) for his performance in The King’s Speech, and will once again appear as Captain Barbosa in the 4th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, On Stranger Tides, due in theaters on May 20th.
With this selection now on the record, hopefully announcements regarding the voices of Kilowog and Salaak won’t be too far behind.
