HBO Max has cast Finn Wittrock as the lead in its upcoming Green Lantern series.
The American Horror Story actor confirmed the news in an Instagram post on May 2, Sunday. “Beyond excited to join the Green Lantern universe as Guy Gardner. Coming to HBO Max in the not-too distant future,” he wrote.
According to Variety, Wittrock will play Guy Gardner, who is described as a “hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likeable.”
The series is based on the original DC Comics saga and will have 10 hour-long episodes. Release date details have yet to be announced.
Wittrock was nominated for an Emmy in 2015 for his role as Dany Mott in American Horror Story. He also starred in American Crime Story: The Assasination of Gianna Versace and Ratched. – Rappler.com
