Mr. Nobody

Leto in Mr. Nobody. Stunning.

First, how could you not love this photo? Second, Jared! We’ve missed you! I don’t know bout ya’ll but I’ve been crushing on Jared since he was grungy My So Called Life Jordan Catalano. He’s been MIA for a bit, but I’m glad he’s back in such an interesting way.

The French film, Mr. Nobody, is tearin’ it up in Venice. Being French, the film is all kinds of confusing. According to Wikipedia:

In the year 2092, a time when Mars is a vacation spot, Nemo Nobody is a 120-year-old man who is the last mortal among humans who have become immortal due to scientific advances. When Nemo is on his deathbed, he reviews the three possible existences and marriages he might have experienced.

Riiiight. It is kind of refreshing to have these simply be his memories – or possible memories – rather than some alternate universe. I think we’ve seen that trend fizzle out (see our Cold Souls post) and die. Here’s the trailer:

And the WEBSITE. There’s lots of yummy media for this film, but it has no US distribution yet. Aw, come on US! I want to see this! Maybe I should start a petition…

STALKING: Casting news for ‘The Green Lantern’ has my loins in a tizzy

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.
