We haven’t seen enough of Tim Robbins. He hasn’t had a significant role in a successful movie since Mystic River in 2003. It’s not that he hasn’t put out quality work, he was fantastic in City of Ember, and he had a lot of fun with a little indie called Noise, but no one showed up for either of them. You’re unlikely to miss his next project. THR says he’s joined the cast of Green Lantern.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like it’s the significant role he deserves. Instead he’s been cast as Senator Hammond, father of the movie’s villain, Dr. Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard). So while he’s at least partially to blame for raising a psychic powered person of pure evil, it’s unlikely he’ll get a lot of screen time. That’ll go to his son, as he battles Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordon.

In the course of this story, THR saw fit to remind us all of this unfortunate nugget: The last time Tim Robbins did a comic book movie it was called Howard the Duck. I’m pretty sure this will be better.
