CONGRATS to Blake!!! Excellent choice for this film. She can work this film and make it worth the view with her appearance, acting, and entertainment for all audience members. I’m really happy they decided to select her for the part. It is a very GOOD FIT~

Ben selected her for THE TOWN and he knows that she is an upcoming* with a lot of potential and strong future ahead of her.

All the best~

That’s so great! I’m really happy for her. She’s a great actress and definitely deserves it.

THANK GOD they didn’t pick Jen GARNER who was going for the same role…uh, Jen you’re 40 and the character’s 27. Good for Blake!

What was that Lainey Blind about a casting couch? Hmm..

# 7

I´m so happy for her :D she deserves it, go Blake :)

# 8

They just killed that film. They could’ve gone with anyone with some kind of talent and they choose this girl?
I don’t like it.

@anon:

I know right. I guess she slept with the right person.

The Lainey blind was clearly a reference to Harvey Weinstein who’s got nothing to do with Warner Bros which is the studio for Green Lantern. If that blind is even true it said that Harvey was trying to prevent the girl from getting her big break as a lead in a big movie. IF that was even true and he was targeting Blake then he failed.

I don’t know if this is the right casting though. Doesn’t strike me as a movie I’m all that likely to see though I like Greg Berlanti as a writer.

Thank YOU FLUTTERS for correctly quoting the blind item for the people that want to believe it is about Blake. Anyway GOOD FOR HER.

That casting couch sounds more like Hayden Pannettiere anyway. Really where has she been in movies. No where and all she does is try.

Her Body got her the job trufax! she likeable on screen and I guess that’s what they were looking for

Blake is a great choice she’s perfect for the part and has loads of screen charisma and talent something Ben Affleck spotted when he cast her in the Town. I agree #5 jen garner is too old for this role, it must be hard knowing she lost out to the girl her husband was having fun flirting with.

Garner is only 37, #5.

A few pics of Affleck and Lively laughing together and they MUST have been flirting, #13?

she’s looking more stunning than ever …did she plump up that top lip or what? I’m usually against that but it just made her a 10. …she’s actually a good actor too.

I am so proud of her,she is perfect.

Thats a stunning picture of her!

oh no i wanted eva green for the role !

not gonna watch now

they only hired her because of her plastic body, i was expecting someone with talent for hottie ryan..

Are you serious?! That’s great!

Sooo happy ! Congrats for Blake, she hasn’t been hired only for her plastic, but she has talent ! So proud of her !
