Use a garbage matte to eliminate the area that is not green.
Many cameras have viewfinders or LCDs that do not show 100% of the image being recorded. My SOny FX1 has that problem. Just get used to it and be more careful in the future.
I agree with Steven. Your camera's viewfinder is not showing the whole picture, Premiere is. Had the same thing happen to me with a boom mic once.
The good news is that for DVD output, most any TV will hide that cinder block wall using overscan, just as my mic never showed up in the final footage.
For computer or web output, however, you probably should correct the situation.
Ideally (but not always possible) you should check what you are shooting on a monitor with an underscan option.
It sounds like you need to fire up Adobe Ultra, and use that to set up your GS shots. I believe it's included in CS3PP. It's been quite a nice addition for me, and I don't even use the camera viewfinder after I set the exposure & focus.
