There are so many great choices for the role of Jon Stewart in the upcoming Green Lantern film, why they’d land on Tyrese is beyond me. That’s not to say that I don’t like Tyrese. He’s been good in the Fast and Furious movies, but it just seems like a bad fit. Almost as bad as if they were to choose Chris Rock.
I’d be so much happier if the casting rumors were around people like Idris Elba, Morris Chestnut, D.B. Woodside, or even Isaiah Mustafa. Still, it is what it is.
Here’s what he told Collider about it:
“I’ve already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we’ll see what happens. I do believe that there needs to be more black superheroes out there, but that’s not even my motivation. I think I would be the best Green Lantern and based on my fans and supporters that spent around $6 billion in box office receipts, I feel like there’s a fanbase of fans out there waiting to see me put on this green suit and do my thing. So I would love to confirm something today but I can’t. We’ll just keep following up.”
It’s really cute that he thinks it was his fans who brought the Fast and Furious series $6 billion.
