Ask me what I know about ‘The Green Lantern’ and you hear crickets.

Cast any one of these dudes and you hear my wallet emptying.

The THR story:

Along with director Martin Campbell and producers Donald De Line and Greg Berlanti, Warners has spent the past five months searching for the actor to play Hal Jordan, the hot-shot Air Force pilot who is chosen by a dying alien to be his successor in an intergalactic police force known as the Green Lanterns.

This week, the race narrowed to Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake. The clock is ticking on the decision as the holding deal the studio had on the actors expired Monday, meaning the three are now free to accept other offers.

It goes on to mention a couple other choices, two names I don’t recognize and then…. Jared Leto.  Hear that?  It’s my wallet closing and my legs crossing.

Don’t F this up, Warner Bros.  I’m gonna go on Wikipedia right now and read all about Green Lantern and then ooh baby I’m gonna get all worked up if you don’t stay true to the material by messing with the plot and characters I hold dear and PLEASE CAST ALL THREE OF THESE GUYS.

That was an open letter of sorts.
