GREEN LANTERN Star Finn Wittrock Explains The Audition Process For Guy Gardner Role

We recently learned that Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story) will be taking on the role of Guy Gardner in HBO Max's Green Lantern, and the actor has now explained the audition process for the series.

It was recently confirmed that Finn Wittrock will take on the lead role of Guy Gardner in the Green Lantern TV series being developed by HBO Max. If you've seen his work in the likes of American Horror Story and Ratched, then you'll know that he's an exciting choice to bring the hero to life on screen.

Rotten Tomatoes recently caught up with the actor, and while there wasn't much he could say about joining the DC Universe, Wittrock did open up about what his audition process entailed. 

"I did an old-fashioned screen test if everyone knows what that is," he explains in the video below. "Usually on an audition, you go to a casting office or here, I've done lots of auditions here in front of a screen. But the old school way of doing it was you go to a studio and they put lights and a camera like a real film and you do a proper scene, so that's what I did."

"It was kind of daunting and way bigger than I thought it would be. Vickie Thomas, who's this casting director who I was always a little, not scared of, but an impressive woman, she sat on this dolly as they pushed into my face on this little stool and read with me. She has a special place in my heart. Then like a week later I found out I got it, so it was very cool. I was very thankful."

We don't know when Green Lantern actually begins production, and there's been no word on who will play Alan Scott yet, never mind the rest of the Green Lantern Corps. As a result, it could be a while before a first look at Wittrock suited up is shared online (rumour has it that the series will have a significant budget compared to other DC TV shows, so it could end up being a VFX creation).

Whatever the case may be, it has to be better than what we saw on the big screen back in 2011, right?
