Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Green Lantern / Hal Jordan with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Green Lantern

Hal Jordan is an air force test pilot who was the first human of Earth to ever be inducted into the Green Lantern Corps. He has been called by some to be the greatest Green Lantern of all time and is also a founding member of the Justice League.

He has also been known as Parallax and The Spectre. He also was the first Green Lantern to recite the famous oath that is now said by many other Green Lanterns.

When he first started his training as a Green Lantern, Hal Jordan was trained by Sinestro and Kilowog. As a Green Lantern he is vulnerable to the color yellow.

Having watched more of his material as Green Lantern, I'm changing to Nathan Fillion. There's a certain charm to his performance that comes across really well.

Hal Jordan, my favourite Green Lantern. If their is one thing I like about the current 52 roster, it's that they brought Hal back to the forefront. Hal's been around since the 50's so he's had numerous incarnations over the years and thus a lot of really solid performances.

If I had to with a favourite here, I'd have to go with the majority and go with Nathan Fillion, Nathan Fillion is every fanboy's hero. He's appeared in so many geeky things, he has a fun and fantastic charisma and he's ruggedly handsome (he's said so himself numerous times). I think most fans always wanted Nathan to play Hal in a live-action movie, unfortunately, I think the peak window for that to happen is sadly no longer there however it's always possible with voice acting and man does Nathan rock the role of Hal. I just think this is perfect casting and he fits the character to a tee. He can play him a cool hot shot rookie living life in the fast-lane, or play him as a respectable veteran of the corps for a few years now. This is probably why Andrea Romano gets him to reprise as often as both of them can. Pretty impressive for a non-New 52 nor DCAU casting choice huh?

My next favourite would have to be Josh Keaton from Green Lantern: The Animated Series and for a while now he was my personal favourite, and while I prefer Nathan just a smidge more now, Josh really was a fantastic Hal. GLTAS deserved to go on longer and I think they made Hal a really cool and likeable character in this show. Josh does sound young but he gets the attitude and charisma done perfectly. He works best as a young twenty-something Green Lantern rookie but I'm sure he could deepen his voice just a bit to show his age for a more experienced Hal. Still it's great he often reprises this role for many Lego adaptations.

Another of the stand outs is Michael Rye (one of Starscreamsfans's favourite performers) and I can totally get why this is his favourite Hal. He has that old timey heroic feel back when superheroes were more simpler and not as dark or as complex. I find Rye makes Hal a very likeable and dependable hero. Michael enjoyed playing Hal based on some of the interviews I've found of him and the fact he played him for such a long time in the 70's and 80's till the end of the Superfriends/Super Powers team era showed his dedication. I should mention Grant Moninger does a fantastic homage to Rye, even if it isn't my favourite casting it's nice to see this part of the DC cartoons past hasn't been completely forgotten.

I'm in the minority but I actually liked Ryan Reynolds in the Green Lantern movie, I dunno I just thought he worked well....in fact I actually like the movie. I felt the movie had some awesome casting choices despite the mediocre writing and numerous other issues. I thought Ryan tried his best as Hal despite all the issues and I feel he deserved some credit for working.

I really enjoyed the casting and performances of Wally Wingert, Joseph May, Cam Clarke, Loren Lester, Nolan North, Aaron Mace, Christopher Meloni and Kevin Smith as Hal Jordan, they all work really well despite not having the most material to work with.

I'm not really feeling Gerald Mohr, Adam Baldwin, David Boreanaz, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Phillips or John Rubinow at all as Hal. I feel personally they are miscast.

Justin Kirk really isn't that good. I'm not sure if its the voice or the way Hal is written but I'm not that found of him. I have to see him in a non-52 inspired project first before I'll really judge.

Lastly there is Jonah Hill from The Lego Movie as their own specific version of Hal. He was only casting because he and Channing Tatum (who did Superman) worked together in the directors other hit movie series 21/22 Jump Street, so Jonah as Hal annoys the crap out of Tatum/Superman and for that its hilarious....though he really doesn't fit a traditional Hal at all.

Overall Nathan Fillion is getting my vote but I also really love Josh Keaton and Michael Rye's performances too.

BONUS: For a while now I've wanted to see Kirby Morrow voice Green Lantern if Ocean ever gets the chance to work on a Justice League project. It might be typecasting but I don't care, he has the cool charisma for a role that can be played either as a hot shot rookie or a dependable dedicated member of the team. I also would like to see Crispin Freeman, Matthew Mercer, Robert McCollum, Eric Vale, Chris Cox and Matt Lanter all have a shot as Hal Jordan someday. They all have cool, cocky and likeable type of voices that would fit Hal well.

I'll group some actors together in my opinion because I share similar opinions and it would get repetitive to keep repeating them.

Gerald Mohr/Michael Rye: They are similar in that they both are typical 'deep voice hero' that the Super Friends series did. They both also have some awkward and stiff delivery. They work for their era but don't hold up.

Dermot Mulroney / David Boreanaz / Josh Phillips / Adam Baldwin / Nolan North: None of them are bad but their version of the character holds them back. Nolan's take says it best, these guys are playing more of a "beat cop". Not a bad take, some have cool deep or raspy/gruff voices, but they lack a certain charm and come off as too serious.

Kevin Smith / Joseph May / Wally Wingert: They are surprising choices that fit pretty well, the only thing that holds them back is limited material. I think they could really own the role if given another shot at their characters.

Cam Clarke / John Rubinow: The above group had limited material but at least sounded like they had potential. These two, I think would only be okay if given more lines.

Loren Lester / Christopher Meloni: Their alright, not great but not bad at all. Maybe I'd have stronger opinions if they reprise Hal but as of right now I think their decent.

Aaron Mace: He works as a mission giving, background explaining NPC but is a little too generic.

Ryan Reynolds: Ryan proved he is a pretty good voice actor and he was good in the movie (even if the movie wasn't) so I blame direction here. He's not BAD but he seems stiff in some lines. I think he could translate his good performance as Hal into voice acting given another chance.

Nathan Fillion: Nathan is one of everyone's favorites and I think he proves why. He's charming and likable (well, when the writing doesn't butcher Hal) but can give a mentor feel too him. A good performance all around.

Josh Keaton: Another popular and loved performance and it's obvious why. Josh brings his usual charming and snarky voice that he's used before but, as others have said, he does sounds a little too young. Not helped that he's used that voice for teenage characters. That said, I think he handles Hal's emotions better than others. His performance for Hal's more serious moments is really good, especially towards the end of the series. One of the shows major stand outs.

Grant Moninger: A funny kinda satire of the Super Friends acting and voices but is inconstant and forgettable.

Justin Kirk: Looking back, I can hear a LITTLE potential for a more accurate Hal. That said, his voice is too nasally and high which made the times when Hal complained in the movie come off as really whiny. Also, this version was written as a huge a-hole with no charm. Maybe if he got a second shot at Hal he could be SLIGHTLY more fitting but I think he wasn't the right man for the role.

Jonah Hill: He's funny for the kinda 'fan-boy' character the Lego Movie wanted him to be but as a more accurate Hal, he'd be a miscast. However, as a Kyle Rayner I think he'd work pretty well.

Ranking all these actors is a little hard because I grouped so many so I'll just say that I tie Nathan and Josh. I think Nathan has the better voice but Josh the better performance.

1) Michael Rye: HE IS GREEN LANTERN!!! This is exactly how I imagine Hal Jordan to sound like. Confident, brave, strong yet compassionate and friendly. What's even better is that the pre-Super Powers SuperFriends shows handled GL better than some of the other heroes (*cough* Aquaman *cough*), because he could get out of any situation or predicament faster than any other hero. He also does seem to be having fun playing GL. His Hal Jordan voice was also fine, more subdued but still confident sounding. Once again, a great performance from a great radio legend. "GREAT GALAXIES!!!"

2) Gerald Mohr: As I said before, this Humphrey Bogart look-alike and sound-alike was taken from us too soon, and his Green Lantern role is another example of his great talent. Mohr's Bogart-esque voice is a nice fit for GL, and the way he delivers Green Lantern's will is epic. "LET THOSE WHO WORSHIP EVIL'S MIGHT, BEWARE MY POWER, GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT!!!!"

3) Christopher Meloni: Meloni's performance is one of the reasons why I love First Flight. His voice reminds me a lot of Michael Rye's Jack Armstrong, which is pretty fitting for GL in his early days as the Guardian of the Galaxy. A fine performance.

4) Jonah Hill: I really enjoyed Hill as GL. He really sounds energetic, plus, he's having fun. And he also has a pretty cool sounding voice. Another standout from the Lego movie.

5) Adam Baldwin: Like the previous four, Baldwin not only delivers a great performance, but he also has a cool sounding voice that fits the character snuggly. His voice reminds me a lot of Mohr.

6) Nolan North: Maybe I'm biased on this one, because North is a personal favorite modern VA, but I really enjoyed him as GL. Once again, he delivers his lines greatly and his voice is pretty cool.

7) Josh Keaton: Now, I really hated the fact that this show got cancelled so suddenly. I wasn't so sure about Keaton at first, but he really surprised me here. Not only a great performance, but a lot of fun, too.

8) Josh Phillips: Another great performance. Phillips' voice is just so cool sounding and his delivery is pretty solid, too.

9) Cam Clarke: As with all Lego performances, I thought Clarke was a lot of fun as GL. Not much else to say, it's a pretty solid performance.

10) John Rubinow: Sure, it's mostly battle dialogue and orders, but I really like Rubinow here. His take does have potential.

11) Loren Lester: I really kinda like Lester in here. It's a pretty quirky performance. The way he delivers the Green Lantern will is kinda corny, but charming (kinda like Danny Dark's Superman performance in the pre-Super Powers SuperFriends shows).

12) David Boreanaz: He sounds great, and I really like the cool attitude he added to his performance.

13) Nathan Fillion: Like Boreanaz, he's got a really nice cool attitude, and his performance is pretty fitting.

14) Joseph May: I really enjoy his take. It's a lot of fun and very energetic. One of the better performances in that game.

15) Wally Wingert: I really enjoy his take. It sounds pretty confident and full of energy. And you can tell that he's having fun as well.

16) Ryan Reynolds: Surprisingly good. Most modern celebrites are not able to make the transition from live-action to video games, but Reynolds does it greatly, he isn't as monotone as one would expect, he retains the same amount of energy and his delivery of the Green Lantern will is just great.

17) Kevin Smith: It's a really nice performance. He has the same cool attitude and voice as the previously listed performers. And the way he delivers "And, uh.... Can I have my ring back???" is hilarious!!!

18) Dermot Mulroney: Pretty good, but the voice sounds more like Batman than GL. It's still cool, though.

19) Grant Moninger: A pretty nice comedic version of Rye's GL. I really enjoyed Moninger's performance. His voice is pretty inconsistent at times, but it's nothing to be bothered about.

20) Aaron Mace: Decent, but he sounds kinda off at times. Like most DCUO performances, it's alright, but kinda lacking.

21) Justin Kirk: I have no problems with his voice nor his delivery, it's just the personality!!! I mean, like somebody before me said, this is not Hal Jordan, it's just Guy Gardner without that trait that made Gardner fun. In other words, decent performance ruined by abysmal material.

There is something I noticed while contemplating Justice League: War, I've noticed that sometimes Hal acts like himself with his true personality, and then Kirk sounds really good, and in the scenes where Hal is given Guy Gardners' personality, this is where he sounds nasally.

Then let me explain how; If you know Nathan, then you know that how he acts in real life, as a person, is very similar to how Hal acts in the comics. The witty charm and charisma that Nathan naturally gives off is pretty much Hal's character. People vote for him because, in a sense, (but not literally) Nathan IS Hal Jordan.

Now I have nothing against Justin Kirk as I literally never heard of him until JLW, but he was really OBNOXIOUS as Hal!!! He sounds rather miscast in the role, and those were his better moments in the clip? I can't imagine it being any worse but apparently it is. Of course the way Hal was written as well as the material he got doesn't help his case.

Anyway, my vote goes to Christopher Meloni, but Nathan Fillion is very close behind. I also liked Nolan, David, Dermot, Loren, Adam(for his Injustice performance), and Josh as well.

I actually went out of my way to try and avoid a lot of Hal's more annoying moments in the film for his clip.
That said, Hal mostly whined and complained and Justin's nasally voice made it come off a little annoying. In fact I was reminded of Nostalgic Critics review of Alien Resurrection and everytime I saw Hal I just thought "I better get a snow cone!"
I don't fault Justin, I'm sure he's a fine actor but here's a character who's known for his charm and it seems the movie forgot to give him any. He seemed more like Guy Gardner than Hal.

Josh really understands the gung-ho nature of the character, and he depicts him to a T.

Tough call, but I'm gonna have to go with Josh, although David and Chris Meloni are a close second and third. David was great for the 50s Hal Jordan, and effortlessly fit into the period "sound" with the other actors. Meloni brought a lot of charm, wit and intelligence to the proceedings.

But Josh has easily gotten the best modern Hal material to work with, and he's easily added another great heroic performance to his roster.

Wish Cam went a little higher. Still Josh is once again a perfect fit for a comic character.

@Bombermanp It probably isn't a matter of money, but just wanting someone different to voice Nightwing fr different incarnations.

I voted Chris Meloni, but it's a 3-way tie of Meloni-North and Reynolds for me.

I really dug Christopher Meloni's Hal, so I'm going with him. That said, I also thoguht Nathan Fillon, Dermot Mulroney, David Boreanaz, and Nolan North were good as Hal, too.

@Anicomicgeek Still think with Christopher Meloni was the best, but yeah, Josh Keaton was good.

This is the most ridiculous voice compare I've ever seen. HALF of these guys are D-list Hollywood actors! What's up with THAT? (no offense though)

Anyway, I'm going with Nolan North on this one, even just for looking MORE like the role than the actors from the live-action films. Dermot Mulroney and Adam Baldwin were very good too.

Josh Keaton is surprisingly very good too; I think he might be my new favorite. :)

@pete In "The Once and Future Thing," the first season finale of JLU, there was a time travelling supervillain that kept changing history, including Hal being on the team instead of John. He had 2, maybe 3 lines with Adam Baldwin voicing him because he was already doing another character for the epiosde.

Does anyone else find it weird that Nolan North has voiced Green Lantern AND Deadpool, and Ryan Reynolds plays Green Lantern AND Deadpool in the movies?

@SalaComMander Yes, that's a funny coincidence. It shows how closely related the characters are that the same time of actor could play each.

@SalaComManderYep! I've noticed that when Ryan Reynolds was gaining steam as all the "Deadpool to Green Lantern" stuff was starting out. Nolan North still beat out Ryan Reynolds because Hulk Vs. Wolverine and Crisis of two earths were released a lot sooner.

@SalaComMander Well, as the joke goes, "Nolan North voices everyone".
pokemastanumba1
said at 7:18 PM on Tue Feb 7 2012
@SalaComMander Yeah, it's really funny. I mean, what kind of correlation was Hollywood making between the two? Just by looking at this VC, there's not much resemblance (if any) between the two, and they don't sound anything alike at all.

I wonder who's going to voice Hal in Young Justice?
pokemastanumba1
said at 7:24 PM on Tue Feb 7 2012
@dtemplar He's only had a cameo in the series thus far, and probably won't get a speaking role.
TheVengeanceKnight
said at 8:52 PM on Mon Feb 27 2012
@dtemplar I remembered reading somewhere that Steve Blum would be voicing him, though I'm not 100% sure.
TheVengeanceKnight
said at 5:58 AM on Fri Jul 27 2012
@dtemplar He was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker in the episode "Agendas", though GW said that Hal hasn't officially been cast yet, so chances are that he won't be voicing him in the long run.

On Michael Rye's VC, when he said, "I know," it sounded more like Adam West's Batman voice than GL's
