Default Jackie Earle Haley to play Sinestro

Ok so i've scouted round a few sites and there's a rumour going round that Jackie Earle Haley is Sinestro ! What do you guys think ?

Maybe. In my mind though, Hugo Weaving would own Sinestro

Wouldn't be a good choice. He could have the malice down, but not so much the sophisticated/aristocratic air about him.

and you know this based on your extensive research of Haley's acting work and range?

Gimme a break. He's been in like three movies over the last twenty years and I would be SHOCKED to hear you say you've seen any of them beyond Watchmen.

He makes a decent mafia badass, but I suspected Sinestro to be more of a intellectual cat stroking Bond villain type.

He was in Planet of the Apes,

and he was a badguy in a lot of late 80's early 90's syndicated shows.

There's a giant gaping hole in his acting career from 1993 to 2006.

He's an ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATED actor.

I would be willing to be cash money that most of you haven't seen "Little Children".

I thought he was awesome in Watchmen and I'm more than willing to wait and see what he can bring to the role of Sinestro.

Yea, but I am talking about his time as villains from shows like Maguyver and Renegade.

And I never saw Watchmen either

but isn't he supposed to be the new Freddie Kreuger in an upcoming Nightmare on Elmstreet movie?

I don't understand what any of those things have to do with him being Sinestro...

I dunno, what does your calling everyone out on their lack of info have to do with his ability to play Sinestro?

I said I have seen him play thug/mafia hit man type of roles a few times in the past. But not really anything like the educated plotting villain that Sinestro is supposed to be.

He's an ACTOR. He'll be ACTING.

The fact that you haven't seen him play a certain part in the past is no indication of his ability to play that part in the future.

I'm willing to take his performances in The Watchmen, Semi-Pro and Little Children speak for his ability and range as an ACTOR and trust that he'll do a fine job.

And I have seen people who cannot act certain types of roles screw up the character.

That's fine... my point is there's no evidence to suggest that Haley can't play the "Sinestro" type and plenty of evidence to suggest that he has incredible range, depth and gravitas.

Actually my recollection was that he was almost universally lauded for that role.

I think he'll do a good Sinestro, I didn't really think of him as a choice but he does have the right look to him, though I'd like to see him with the right kind of hair (lol) for it. I think him and Ryan Reynolds will be good together.

This makes the third DC role for him I believe.

In my opinion I think that he could pull it off although i do like the idea of hugo weaving playing sinestro which i've seen people say in a few other posts.
