The latest DC Comics’ superhero tale Green Lantern continues to add thesps in small roles, and the latest to join the film is Jon Tenney, who will play Martin H Jordan, AKA Hal’s dad.

Tenney, usually to be found co-starring on quirky US cop drama The Closer, has a prior connection with the DC Universe, having played a Kryptonian warrior who falls for Teri Hatcher’s Lois Lane in the ‘90s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman.

"The Closer's letting me shoot off in June a little bit, and I'm doing a little picture called Green Lantern, and that will be fun," he tells SuperheroHype.

"Ryan Reynolds is the Green Lantern, and when he is a young boy, like 11, I'm his father. I'm Hal Jordan's dad. I'm very excited – it's incredible company.”
