Could Chekov be the next Green Lantern?

MTV have some interesting news on a possible Green Lantern.

Star Trek” actor Anton Yelchin (Charlie Bartlett, Star Trek) is rumored to be the front-runner to play DC’s Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, after Ryan Gosling (“The Notebook”) and Emile Hersch (“Speed Racer”) passed on the role.

According to anonymous sources at
Latino Review, the “Green Lantern” producers are looking for a young star, but also someone familiar. The site named Yelchin, who plays Kyle Reese in the upcoming “Terminator: Salvation” and a young Pavel Chekov in the upcoming “Star Trek” film, as a potential candidate after Gosling, Hersch and upcoming “Clash of the Titans” actor Sam Worthington passed.

As one might expect, there’s some disagreement in the online world regarding the best candidate for the role of DC’s popular ring-bearer, with favorite actor of Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, and “Battlestar Galactica” star Jamie Bamber also popping up as potential stars. “Mad Men” actor Jon Hamm has also been mentioned as a worthy candidate to take up the role of Jordan

Hmm, not sure about this bit of news. He seems awfully young to play Hal. Not really watched him in anything though. What are your thoughts on it. If he is cast would he make a good Hal Jordan?
