Blake Lively landed the female lead opposite Ryan Reynolds in Warner Bros.’ ‘Green Lantern’, according to THR. Blake will play Carol Ferris, who runs her father’s aerospace company and hires cocky test pilot Hal Jordan (Reynolds), who later becomes the intergalactic policeman Green Lantern. In the comics, the romance became complicated when an alien race bestowed her the power of a crystal called the Star Sapphire.

The role called for a slightly older actress, but Blake impressed the studio and filmmakers with her audition. They were also impressed with her work in ‘The Town,’ its adaptation of the gritty Chuck Hogan novel directed by Ben Affleck now in post-production.

    I agree with LightningRider, Carol Ferris will be tough role for anybody! She should only be the love interest for the first film, as the villian should be Sinestro! Blake’s not a bad actress but Keri Russel was up for the part too and a much better choice IMO! But hey I don’t make the movies!

    Seriously? Am I the only one here who thinks she doesn’t have the acting chops to go aganst Reynolds? No offense, but she hasn’t impressed me so far.

    I’m watching The Daily 10 on E! and Demi came out in the category “Fashion Miss”. She should have worn a more appropriate/prettier dress to the PC Awards.

    Hun, she’s Carol Ferris. Do you know who the hell Carol Ferris is? She’s a multimillion dollar businesswoman who became head of an air force company fresh out of college. She’s suppose to act serious, and she’s suppose to be a love interest, and a villain at the same time. We don’t see it.
