Geoffrey Rush a Freakish Green Lantern Now

As Warner Bros. continues its attempt to convince us Green Lantern has slightly more dignity than the first trailer and associated ass-heavy materials have suggested, the studio is expected to on Thursday announce the addition of 75%-of-an-EGOT-winning actor Geoffrey Rush to the cast. The Los Angeles Times has heard the news early, reporting that Rush will voice alien Tomar-Re--the bird-beaked mentor of Reynolds' Hal Jordan and one of the few members of the Green Lantern Corps more unsettling and frail looking than Geoffrey Rush himself--though it's still unclear if the Australian actor has already recorded his lines or, like with Michael Clarke Duncan, they're just now hurrying to throw a recognizable voice on their CGI pile. I wonder how this honor compares to being on a postage stamp.
