The rumor of the moment is that Chris Pine (Trek 2.0's Kirk) is being considered for the role of Hal Jordon/Green Lantern. I've yet to see him in anything, but almost everyone I know who's seen Star Trek has loved Star Trek, and its sort of hard to love something and hate the lead.

Sure it'd be nice to have two franchises under your belt (*cough*christian bale*cough*), but would starring in GL be redundant? As the script stands, Hal Jordan is a hotshot pilot who bucks authority and through great circumstance becomes a hero that saves earth...which sounds an awful lot like J.J. Abrams's vision of James T. Kirk.
