Carol Ferris Star Sapphire Who Will Play Green Lanterns Girlfriend?

El Mayimbe over at Latino Review has posted an exclusive report on the pool of actresses that are said to be in the final rounds of consideration for the role of Carol Ferris, the lady love interest of The Green Lantern, Hal Jordan.

Now, the list of actresses who will possibly star opposite Ryan Reynolds (who will be playing Hal Jordan) is a pretty nice collection of former or current TV and/or film stars. All of them are hot – some of them are even good actresses. We have a nice set of photos for you to look over and consider, which is certainly not a bad way to start your Monday.

If you remember, we got our first notion of how Carol Ferris would be portrayed in The Green Lantern earlier this fall when the casting call for Green Lantern supporting roles was released. here’s what the filmmakers said they were looking for:

26-32, a smart and attractive woman with an MBA. She started as a pilot and now runs Ferris Aircraft. She is a work-a-holic…FEMALE LEAD

Caorl Ferris is the daughter of aerospace mogul Carl Ferris, and has a crush on Hal Jordan.

Now that you have some context, take a look at the list of lovely ladies Latino Review has pegged for the final rounds of consideration:

Jennifer Garner (Alias, Elektra)

Diane Kruger (National Treasure, Inglourious Basterds)

Eva Green (Casino Royale)

Keri Russel (Mission: Impossible III)

Blake Lively (Gossip Girl)

I confess that my ordering of these photos isn’t random: in considering which actress would handle the role best and would also share the best onscreen chemistry with Ryan Reynolds, my top pick is definitely Jennifer Garner. Blake Lively? No thanks.

Please also take into account: in the comic books, Carol Ferris eventually goes from being Hal Jordan’s love interest to being Green Lantern’s nemesis, Star Sapphire (see header pic), after she is possessed by a violet sapphire stone imbued with light powers much like Green Lantern’s emerald power ring (see the history of that story by going HERE).

It’s too early to tell just closely the storyline of The Green Lantern (more likely the sequels) will follow this particular mythos of Ferris’ character, but in case it goes that way, the actress playing Carol Ferris would need to be able to tackle the role of Star Sapphire down the road. For my money, Jennifer Garner works best for that.

  1. Keri’s my top choice.

  2. knowing almost everything about the comic i think that kerie is the best choice.

  3. Kruger has a more cold hearted look here. Just based on the facial expression. As always though the choice of actresses never seem to measure up to what’s put on the comics page. I wouldn’t pick any of them if I had to go by the comics. I could never make it in casting, I’d hate it. It has to be in the top five suckiest high profile jobs in the industry…

  4. what about the girl from The Book of Eli?

  5. Diane Kruger

  6. I really don’t see any of these choices working well with Ryan Reynolds….. IMHO, they need to

  7. keep looking……..

  8. Garner is a terrible choice, does no one remember how she nearly ruined Daredevil??? Hence why her character is almost completely ostracised from the directors cut.

    Out of the choices above, I’d like to see Eva Green take the role, she is very hot and I love her voice. Plus she has worked with Martin Campbell before.

  9. @ Packy

    you’re absolutely bang-on with the mention of serinda swan for the role. absolutely gorgeous woman and she’s already appeared in a DC comics role as Zatanna in smallville. she could be a perfect carol ferris even tho the competition is between the other 4.

  10. Ali Landry, enough said.

  11. My vote would be Jennifer Garner. Maybe because if the film does great, she could be used as a villain in a sequel say,
    Carol Ferris AKA. (Star Sappire) ? Her roles in Daredevil & Elektra are different and are in the past. Anyways, Aswell as the film turns out great i’ll be happy.

  12. Well, if we’re looking for an actress that’s on par with Ryan Reynolds, I think that Blake Lively is probably the best choice.

    On a serious note, I generally agree with the people who suggested Jennifer Connelly, but out of the options above, I’m in favor of Diane Kruger.

  13. I’d never seen Blake Lively before, she’s very pretty..

  14. well our opinion no longer matters (not that it ever did)Blake Lively has just been confirmed as the lead female. =/
    hope she does well.

  15. keri russel veryyyyyyyyyyyy lovelyyyyyyyyyy

  16. Blake Lively is so smexy… I think she rocks in the movie and would make a smokin Star Saphire.
