The Green Hornet – First proper photo of Seth Rogen in costume
Posted by LiveFor on October 2, 2009
A photo surfaced a couple of days ago that looked like Seth Rogen in costume as the crime fighter, The Green Hornet, but it turned out that it was a stunt man on the set of Michel Gondry’s film.
However, this photo has popped up and it shows Rogen and Jay Chou in costume as the Hornet and Kato.
Rogen plays Britt Reid, the newspaper entrepreneur by day and masked superhero by night. Jay Chou takes over the role of chauffeur/martial-arts expert Kato, Cameron Diaz is Lenore Case, and Inglourious Basterds’ Christoph Waltz plays the villain, Chudnofsky.
Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica) also stars and recently spoke to the LA Times about the film “I’ll put it to you this way — it’s quite a fun journey,” Olmos said. “It’s my first time doing this kind of a movie. ‘Blade Runner’ is the only thing that comes close to this. I’m having a lot of fun. People are really going to like what we’ve done. …”
Olmos’ character works alongside James Reid, publisher of the Sentinel and father of Britt.
“We’re the backbone of the paper,” he said. “Things go awry, and I end up having to try to sustain what’s going on in our lives. And of course the Green Hornet doesn’t make it any easier. I don’t want to give anything away.“
“It took a while, but things are finally coming together,” said Olmos, who revealed he has one major stunt in which he gets zapped. “I think it’s going to be very exciting. People will find that it’s different than what they expect. Seth is doing a wonderful job. There’s a lot of everything. It’s going to be action-filled, and there’s a lot of humor in the situations. It’s really a well-crafted piece of work. Hopefully people will enjoy it and we’ll have a few of these films.”
Green Hornet opens 17th December, 2010
