Tim Robbins joins Green Lantern

Green Lantern’s supporting cast is shaping up well with Reynolds snogging with Blake Lively, Mark Strong likely playing Sinestro (but Sinestro wont be the villain yet) and Peter Sasgaard playing Dr Hector Hammond.

But now we find out that Tim Robbins has also join the cast.. but as who? Hammond’s dad?

So, that leaves Dr. Hector Hammond, played by Peter Sarsgaard, as the feature villain of the Green Lantern origins movie. We know that Dr. Hector Hammond is “the pathologist son of a senator who is seen as a disappointment in his father’s eyes” and now we know who’s playing the father: Tim Robbins!

Obviously they were not done considering Robbins, as he was originally being considered for the role of Tony Stark’s father in Iron Man – a role that got glossed over as a cover story in the plot.

Now the inevitable dad will be playing a negative influence this time as the villain will be motivated by insecurity created by his judgemental father who he could never impress. He needs a hug.

I always like Tim Robbins in the roles he plays, but he still looks like Bill Gates to me (which made him perfect for the Gates-esque role he played in Antitrust)

I can’t see his role being all that big in the story considering this will be ALL about Hal Jordan, and the villain will be secondary leaving his dad issues tertiary.
