Spencer was also the character Kilowog in Green Lantern, starring opposite Ryan Reynolds, Tim Robbins and Mark Strong, and Mad Bible in Robert de Niro movie Stardust.
Swiftly teleported to the distant planet Oa, Hal runs the usual rookie obstacle course, receiving sage advice from chicken-fish hybrid Tomar-Re (voiced by Geoffrey Rush); rough training from piggish Kilowog (voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan); and sneering disapproval from Sinestro (Mark Strong), the Lanterns' supercilious, red-skinned leader.
But I can't believe they really have a character which goes by the highly dubious name of Kilowog.
