Geoffrey Rush came out of nowhere to win the Best Actor Oscar in 1997. Since then he’s proven to be a tremendous character actor, and like the best character actors he seems to be fearless in his selection of films. He’s done just about every genre. Sometimes though that means being in films like 2011’s Green Lantern. Nobody liked this film. Anytime your lead actor moves on to another superhero franchise, that’s a sign that the first one was awful. Rush plays Tomar-Re, an alien mentor to the film’s protagonist Hal Jordan; an alien mentor with a beak.
