    No!! She can't act! Bad bad choice.



  2. 2

    you are way after, this was reported 3 days ago. Perez, you are overrated!



  3. 3

    two thumbs up, get it S!



  4. 4

    this is going to be one hot movie, looking forward to it.



  5. 5

    She is attractive and think she has potential. I also liked her in Traveling pants, silly title but that movie is good.



  6. 6

    Interesting. This will be her chance to prove she can act.



  7. 7

    ooooOo, yes! Reynolds and Lively, hot!



  8. 8

    this is the worst thing they could possibly do for this movie..i love GG but i can get over how TERRIBLE blake is



  9. 9

    Someone shoot me, I've been a GL fan ever since i was 5, and Ryan Renyolds and Blake Lively as the principal cast is almost like they've given up on the film, shame on DC, same on New Line, this is a DISASTER



  10. 10

    sure, why not?



  11. 11

    Wow didnt expect that. Good for her! I saw the headline the other day that they chose someone but I skipped it cause I didnt care about the movie. Might have to look into it now.



  12. 12

    She's a good actress, i don't know what you people are talking about.
    I can't till this movie comes out though (:



  13. 13

    Blake Lively is hot hell ya good choice



  14. 14

    i feel like we've only seen her as a one-dimensional actress since she hasn't done much. however, i am a huge fan of actors surprising the audience in weird casting choices, so i hope she does well!

    What is with all these blondes getting cast as brunettes? First the atrocity that was Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane, then Siena Miller as Baroness and now Blake Lively as Carol Ferris. Are there no brunettes that can act left in Hollywood, or are they just not interested in these roles?



  16. 16

    nooooooooooooooo.



  17. 17

    Terrible choice.



  18. 18

    I think she is wonderful.. I had no opinion about her either way until I saw her on SNL, and she was FABULOUS. She has real star potential for sure.

    Blake Lively as an aerospace executive? Ha Ha now that is funny. Almost as unbelievable as when Denise Richards was in a Bond movie. I pictured someone brunette in their late 20's or early 30's. Whatever. Did Harvey Weinstein have something to do with her getting this part? Isn't she his new "project". The thought of her sleeping with him makes me throw up a little.

I pictured a brunette who was at least in their late 20's or early 30's playing the part. Whatever. Did Harvey Weinstein have something to do with Blake getting the part? Isn't she his new pet project? The thought of her sleeping with him makes me throw up a little.

    Female casting in superhero movies has generally been so blah. So in keeping with the homely Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Bosworth, Kristen Dunst, etc. this Lively person is a perfect fit.

    PS. to movie studios — most of these female characters in comic books are supposed to be super hot or striking looking. Way to fail.



  22. 22

    I think she should get a sex change to play Green Lantern himself



  23. 23

    BAD casting! Carol Ferris becomes Star Sapphire - there's no way I see this Barbie doll doing that. This role should've gone to Jennifer Garner.



  24. 24

    I'm sorry, but how can someone with zero acting skills and a lack of interesting facial expressions be expected to carry a film? I don't get it, but maybe she will she will surprise us all.



  25. 25

    I love her!



  26. 26

    WELL, IT'S OFFICIAL!!

    The GREEN LANTERN will SUCK!!



  27. 27

    she is sooo annoying. so. so.



  28. 28

    worst choice ever……….i was looking forward to the movie until i heard this….



  29. 29

    WTF? Blake Lively as Carol Ferris? That is one bad dreadful choice!!

    As a fan of Green Lantern & Green Lantern Corps, Blake *cannot* reminisce as Carol Ferris!

    I'll agree with fans that GL will flop.

    R-

    Hey! Wake up people!

    She will only be in the first part of the movie and probably the end because most of the movie takes place IN SPACE.

    **Sigh**

    This movie obviously won't be the Dark Knight or even Spider-Man. Ryan Reynolds is a horrible dramatic actor. He can't carry a serious scene. He was the best of the worst in Wolverine but ppl forgot the worst part and just think he's the best. Blake is a typical choice. She can do ensemble well but she can't really pull of true leading lady status. And that's what Ryan needs. Can't have the leading pretty boy getting upstaged. They should have casted Matt Damon and Naomi Watts or if it was so important to go young (which shows this movie is more about looking good than talent) then try to steal Natalie Portman from Thor.



  32. 32

    AGREE.

    i'm still thanking god for his nudity in "buying the cow".
    who cares about the co-star as much as we can see him more and more and more!?



  34. 34

    hmmmm…..I wonder if this has anything to do with the rumor going around a couple of weeks ago about Weinstein wanting to get in her pants in exchange of a feature film career…gross



  35. 35

    Hell No!!! She's a No Name, Can't Act and has about as much Sex appeal as a Paper Bag!!!

    This Movie sounds tragic!!!

    I hope they cast Christina Aguilera as the Black Cat in Spiderman 4!!! Now that is something I'd watch…



  36. 36

    THE GREEN LANTERN WAS BLACK! CASTING CHANGE!



  37. 37

    No. No. No. *facepalm* Fucking stupid Hollywood.



  38. 38

    She's really pretty



  39. 39

    Love S! Way to go!



  40. 40

    im not familiar with green lantern but I love Blake and will totes go just to see her ^^ Congrats chica!



  41. 41

    I LIKE BLAKE, BUT SHE CAN'T ACT…WELL EXCEPT FROM THAT SCENE IN "SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS" WHEN SHE WAS AT HER MOM'S FUNERAL AND SHE STARTED RUNNING. THAT WAS GOOD. BUT OTHER THAN THAT, NOT REALLY. THEY SHOULD HAVE GAVE HER NEW ROLE TO CHRISTINA RICCI OR LEIGHTON MEESTER.



  42. 42

    apparently harvey weinstein finally hit that



  43. 43

    Reynolds and Blake are the hottest starts in Hollywood. Whoever is responsible of hiring these two together is brilliant!

    I will advise Scarlett to be careful… Blake is divine…



  44. 44

    booooring.



  45. 45

    Well, that's one movie I'll be crossing off my list.



  46. 46

    eeuw



  47. 47

    No. Never. No "gossip girl" who doesn't know a thing about comic books is going to screw up such an anticipated film!



  48. 48

    I worked on "Gossip Girl" and she was not only DEVOID of talent, but a grade A Bitch. Rude to everyone, including co-stars, taking off costumes and tossing them on the floor for an AD to pick up…really classless.



  49. 49

    There's also something called the "Blake Lively Eye Roll". Whenever anyone on set had to deal with her or relay her rude responses, it always was preceded with the "Blake Lively Eye Roll."



  50. 50

    The girl can't act….still can't figure out how she got the lead in Gossip Girl. She mumbles every line. She will definitely need alot more than this to prove she is an actress. It's a good thing "Mumbles" is young.



  51. 51

    I think she's a great choice and will do well.

    Go Blake ! :)



  52. 52

    LOVE IT! LOVE HER!



  53. 53

    yes i love Blake she's so incredibly beautiful!



  54. 54

    If she doesn't use her whiny annoying voice then I guess she'll be an okay choice.



  55. 55

    whoever said she was great on SNL, is NUTZ! That was one of the worst shows all season. I couldn't believe how horrible she was for an actress. Every line was monotone and mumbled. I wished that she wasn't in the next scene and unfortunately, it didn't happen. She may be attractive, but she is spoiled and ungrateful. Does anyone recall the story of her bringing her sick puppy into a party and it peeing on the hostess?



  56. 56

    Re: Caraqueñ!!!SEMICOLON!!!ita82 – That was my thought too!



  57. 57

    can she act?



  58. 58

    She is a terrible actress and not that pretty. Sick of her.



  59. 59

    i agree lol



  60. 60

    Re: Angiekins – she did ok in the 2nd pants movie in her crying seen that was the only time she was ever good.



  61. 61

    Re: mbizzle

    She's with Penn Badgley so I doubt it



  62. 62

    As much as I love Ryan [Reynolds] and do watch GG enough to know Blake isn't THAT bad, I think this movie will indeed suck. First of all, the Green Lantern is a BLACK guy! He's probably the only cool black superhero there is! Giving the role to a white, Canadian guy just shows how in Hollywood it's all about looks and not talent ( I love Ryan and all but he's not a "great" actor). From what I've read, it seems like she was only given the role for being the "hottie" on Gossip Girl.

    Anna Paquin would've been a great choice.

    i love this actress, everytime i see her, i think she's cute to death.
