Geoffrey Rush Will Voice Tomar-Re in Green Lantern

While director Martin Campbell “works furiously” to finish up post-production on Warner Bros. huge tentpole film “Green Lantern” for its June 17 release date (yes, kids, it’s almost here), the movie has officially added Barbossa himself, Geoffrey Rush, to provide the voice for the Green Lantern named Tomar-Re.

Tomar-Re, the fish-like alien dude to the left, standing with Hal Jordan on the right, is a former scientist turned Intergalactic beat cop, and the GL who Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) first meets on his way to learning the ways of the Force. Er, I mean, the intergalactic beat cop stuff.

Apparently adding voice actors even this late in the game is not new to Hollywood, or big Summer tentpole films like this.

Besides the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, Rush was also in “The King’s Speech”, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.
