Contrary to Friday's rumors, 19-year-old Anton Yelchin says he's not in talks to play the lead in next year's The Green Lantern. When asked about it at WonderCon in San Francisco over the weekend, he said: "I have no idea. I think I'm probably too young. I mean, no one has approached me. No one has said anything to me. I imagine I'm just too young." Even so, he's our first choice to play Hal Jordan in ten years when Warner Bros. inevitably reboots the franchise again. [IESB via Playlist]
