Looks like Tyrese Gibson (Furious Seven, Transformers: Dark of the Moon) is no longer the only actor lobbying like there’s no freakin' tomorrow to land the coveted role of Green Lantern member John Stewart in DC and Warner Bros.’ recently announced Green Lantern Corps movie, set to premiere sometime in 2020.
Gibson pretty much stood unchallenged these past few months: posting awesome fan art, confirming he’d met with the powers-that-be over at WB; but that time is now over. Actor Lance Gross (NBC's Crisis), who’s mostly known for his role of Calvin Payne in seven seasons of Tyler Perry's House of Payne (and a veteran of several Perry movies), is now gunning for the part of John Stewart as well.
Do you believe Lance Gross to be a serious contender for the role of John Stewart?
