Being a parent is never easy. In today's modern world, moms and dads face an ever-growing array of concerns and dangers as they try to steer their children through a minefield of online predators, violent video games and good, old-fashioned hazing at school. But if you think it's stressful just being a parent, imagine being the parent of a superhero.

Well, that's the task facing Jon Tenney, as Variety is reporting that the veteran actor has been tapped to play Hal Jordan's dad in next year's Warner Bros. blockbuster 'The Green Lantern.' Tenney, who is best known for his role as Kyra Sedgwick's husband on 'The Closer,' joins Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Peter Sarsgaard in the story of a fearless pilot who becomes protector of Earth when he receives a power ring from a dying alien space cop.
