Orlando Jones has spoken before about his desire to play the DC Comics character Black Lightning and recently spoke about it again and the fact that the creator Tony Isabella has endorsed him for the role.
You’re a big comic book fan, let’s say you get the chance to play any character – Marvel, DC, Valiant are all making movies now… What’s your number one pick?
OJ: Right now I gotta go Black Lightning. He’s an interesting character that I think hasn’t been explored a lot. He’s a DC character, which I love, and I think there’s so much potential for that.
And actually, the creator, Tony Isabella, sent me a message on twitter and said he wants me to play that role!
Well there we go! We’ll get the campaign started right here, right now, Orlando Jones for Black Lightning!
OJ: Dude, let’s do it. Let’s make it happen.
Happy birthday @TheOrlandoJones and know the creator of Black Lightning (namely, me) thinks you would be great playing the character.
