Rogen on Hornet

You can either love or hate the idea of Seth Rogen as the Green Hornet, but you can't say it isn't intriguing. Yesterday, the man took the time to talk to MTV a little about the role. "Just a few weeks ago, [co-writer Evan Goldberg and I] laid out our outline for the movie to the studio, and before the phone call, Evan and I were like, 'This is not like any superhero movie — they might just hate that'... 'It's not using any of the normal superhero movie formats. It's not an origin story. It's more like a regular action movie.' [But] they really liked it and told us to go for it." He also talked a little about the need for him to buff up, or at least lose some weight for the role: "You should believe that I can do some physical activity... You have to believe I can do something." What do you guys think about this? Rogen also told MTV that all the naysayers should hold off judging this thing, until they've seen PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, an action comedy that he has coming out soon with James Franco. Of course, a lot of the success of the film is gonna be down to Kato, and the two names he dropped for that role were Stephen Chow (KUNG FU HUSTLE) and Tony Jaa (ONG BAK). I think Chow would get my vote, since I'm not convinced by Jaa's acting, and Chow is one of the funniest people on the planet.
