LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Tyrese Gibson isn't waiting for Hollywood to come knocking.

The former model and Fast & Furious star wants to play Green Lantern so badly that he's launched a social media campaign on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Over the last several days, the 36-year-old has been posting photoshopped images of himself in character as the DC Comics hero, last portrayed by Ryan Reynolds in 2011.

"I am fully committed to suiting up for this adventure," he captioned several posts.

Rumor has it that.

Reynolds is unlikely to return to the Green Lantern role, which was poorly received, but Warner Brothers and DC Comics are having another go at the character. A new Green Lantern film is slated for 2020.
