Dailies | Ryan Reynolds Gets All Lit Up in ‘Green Lantern’ Trailer (Video)

“Adventureland” actor has a rough transition to heroism in his latest movie

Apparently, the old adage is true — it really isn't being green.

Hard to blame him, really, with all of the sword fights with pointy-eared foes and nasty explosions.

Take a look at Reynolds' rough transition to heroism in the video.
