Jango Fett Is a Green Lantern

?Erg… wait a minute… I just gave myself a little nerdgasm akin to Batman wielding a lightsaber at the idea of Jango Fett actually being a Green Lantern. Pffuhh… okay. Okay. I’m done.

Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, has signed on to be alien ring-passer Abin Sur in the Green Lantern movie. I was about to type that I didn’t think much of Morrison’s acting ability in AotC, but then I realized practically no one had a good performance in the Star Wars prequels because George Lucas is a terrible director of actors, so honestly, I have no idea how talented Morrison is or isn’t. Anyways, he’ll assumably be pink. Also, actor/quirky indie comedy-romance Eagle Vs. Shark director/fellow New Zealander Taika Waititi has been hired to play Hal Jordan’s Eskimo buddy Rex Dart Thomas Kalmaku. (Via Hollywood Reporter)
