If the idea of Seth Rogen as a superhero sounds a little crazy, well, it is. But at least the guy has good taste in co-stars. He’d like to get Stephen Chow to play ‘sidekick’ Kato.
But wouldn’t it be kind of a step down for Stephen Chow to be playing a ‘sidekick’? The guy’s written, directed and starred in scores of movies (including Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle), so would Stephen Chow be interested in going to sidekick route?
Then again, we’re assuming that Seth Rogen is sticking to the ‘old school’ Green Hornet sidekick. And that’s probably not going to be the case. Either way, the L.A. Times says Rogen wants Chow on board. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around Seth Rogen as The Green Hornet. But the guy’s really darn funny, so he’s getting the benefit of the doubt so far.
