Green Arrow FanCast
On October 31, 2014 • Author Melanie Jo • no CommentsHeadlines & Rumors

Comicbookmovie.comIn honor of the return of CW’s Arrow these past few weeks, I thought I would create a fancast for a big screen adaptation of Green Arrow. Now, keep in mind as you take a look at my cast, that this iteration of Green Arrow would exist within the DCCU that I have created in the past year.

In my past few editorials/fancast, I’ve always had a fully developed fan fiction to go along with the casting but given how I’ve never anticipated a Green Arrow movie fitting in my DCCU plans (which obviously has already been shot to hell by what’s actually going on) I didn’t bother coming up with a plot line for the movie.

WARNING: I apologize before hand for the lack of pictures. For some reason, I am having trouble uploading pictures and thus cannot embed them into the article. I will update if I ever figure out what the problem is.

Anyway, without further ado—and I hope you enjoy—the cast of Green Arrow:

Joel Kinnaman as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow: Okay, yes, I’ll admit—Joel Kinnaman is an extremely generic choice to play Oliver Queen but one can’t deny his burgeoning Hollywood status what with a lead role in RoboCop and the critically-acclaimed The Killing. The latter clearly shows Kinnaman’s ability to act and given the right script, I think he has the perfect combination to bring explore all aspect of the Green Arrow persona and that of his secret identity, Oliver Queen. Kinnaman’s experience with action is also a plus and I think he only needs the right film and exposure to become a household name.

Joel Kinnaman Snags Sunset Strip Digs
On October 14, 2014 • Author Melanie Jo • no CommentsHeadlines & Rumors

Variety.com – It was Yolanda Yakketyyak, with her mysterious celebrity real estate ways, who first tattled to this eager-eared property gossip that uncommonly comely Swedish-born actor Joel Kinnaman — currently co-starring on “The Killing” — surreptitiously shelled out $2.45 million (via trust) for a revamped, 1970s mock-Med abode high in the hills above the Sunset Strip.

The two-story residence spans 2,542 square feet, according to marketing materials, with three city-view bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms uniformly slathered in identical tumbled stone tiles. The wood-floored, open-concept main living space has huge windows, beams across the ceiling, a concrete-faced catty-corner fireplace — one of three in the house — and a column-flanked sitting area just off the kitchen and dining area.

Many houses in the steep hills above the Sunset Strip lack proper yard space, but Mister Kinnaman’s new crib has an unusually large and flat grassy yard with stone-tiled terraces, a plunge-sized swimming pool and tree-framed views that extend to the towers of Century City and — on a particularly clear day — the Pacific Ocean.
