Cameron Diaz to play Kato in GREEN HORNET?!?

Published at: July 8, 2009, 4:43 p.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here... and I was just fucking with you with the headline - However, Entertainment Weekly is running with the rumor that Cameron Diaz is on the verge of signing on to be the female lead in GREEN HORNET, whatever that means. Villain, damsel in distress, whatever she may be, let's just hope there's some magical swirling ass action. It has been too long since she activated her super power, and swirling it to the 'Flight of the Bumble Bee' would be amazing. I still haven't a clue what this film is going to be like. Gondry. Seth Rogen. Cameron Diaz. Is Chow still involved? If not, I'd love Tony Jaa as Kato. Just saying.

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    But if they were trying to make it a serious superhero film I wouldn't either. It's just a dumb-assed character. I want a HAWK MAN movie! Now THAT would be fuckin' amazing!

    Green Hornet dumb-ass?

    by Continentalop

    Far from it. The only problem is that every masked hero since him has aped so many of his angles there is nothing new to bring to the character. <p> No matter what, audiences will look at him as a watered down Batman, despite the fact that he was first and he had a special car and sidekick before Batman ever did.

    OMFG. DOES ANY FUCKING DOUCHEBAG FIND HER ATTRACTIVE OR EVEN REMOTELY HOT? THERE'S NOT AN OUNCE OF SEX APPEAL THERE, AND HER BODY IS AS FUNKY AS AN 80 YEAR OLD WHORE. <P> OH, NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT SHE CAN'T ACT HER WAY OUT OF A FUCKING PAPER BAG. <P> MY GOD. EVERY TIME I LOOK AT HER I IMMEDIATELY WANT TO SUCK COCK. SHE'S THAT FUCKING UGLY.

    Rogan reminds me of a guy I went to college with...

    by ZombieHeathLedger

    ..but I don't want to see that guy in any movies either. I caught THE MASK on cable the other night, Diaz used to be sooo hot when she was younger. The older she gets the less the whole "I'm so goofy-just one of the guys" schtick works. And the best thing the original GREEN HORNET series ever had going for it was Bruce Lee, what is there to give a shit about in this, yet another, useless unoriginal Hollywood remake? Seth Rogan? Biiittttchhhh pllleeasseeee....

    Reminds EVERYONE of someone they went to college with. That's what's so endearing and yet bugs you about him. And I think C-Diaz was only hot in The Mask, back when she had meat on her bones and hunger in her eyes.

    let's be real

    by CaptainSpamtilles

    Seth Rogen is a capitalist. He is just looking for properties to make him rich. He is not a true performer and does not care about the fans or about the properties he wishes to perform in. No one born in the 80's knows about the green hornet, so they would have no passion about bringing the green hornet to the screen. Rogen = CUNT!

    That's news to me... so they're gonna camp this up??? I'd have preferred it be a more dark comedy type thing if they wanted funny, like a superhero James Bond. Anyway Tony Jaa as Kato would be awesome!

    and Head Above Water, the hbo movie w/ Harvey Keitel and She's the one. Basically, from '94 to 2000. I'll give her Something about Mary but that was in '98. And I"ll even give her Vanilla Sky. But her personality is dumb and lacks every little maturity and now that shes' like 37 she better change her ways asap!

    Why not Jet Li?

    by The Dark Shite

    Yeah, he's Chinese & I'm pretty sure Kato's a Japanese name, but so was Bruce Lee & Jet Li's about as close as you can get to a modern version of him. <p> There's no way Jaa could be Kato. He's great, but a Thai Kato? That's a stretch too far even for Hollywood & its generic Asians.

    I thought she was great on Maher's show

    by Ash Talon

    I thought she and Maher had a good chemistry. I was actually surprised at how mature and smart she appeared to be. I found it very refreshing that she said not everyone has the drive to have children, and our society fawns over the very thought of parenthood. She's content with her social situation and is enjoying life. <p> Have all you yahoos forgot that she was in Being John Malkovich? She's a good actress that has been pigeonholed into broad comedy. She's trying to expand beyond that, and I'm looking forward to what she does next. <p> This project, on the other hand, has no appeal to me whatsoever. Who really cares about the Green Hornet? No one. It's got flop written all over it.

No, seriously, I hope the whole thing is shot green-screen and CGI'd so it looks like comic book colors, then (and I'm keeping my fingers crossed here!), I hope they cast Eva Mendes and maybe those Disney brunette chicks as scantily-clad death babes, and maybe Martin Lawrence as "El Spooko", the Green Hornet's ruthless arch-nemesis whose only weakness is pork chops. And have a part where Lawrence's character shoves a golden plunger up Rogen's ass. You're welcome, Hollywood!

    As a female Kato. I don't dislike Rogen. But he doesn't need to be in everything. At this point this movie would be better off with Channing Tatum in the lead. The whole project is fucked.

  • July 8, 2009, 9:10 p.m. CST

    50? Not even close

    by cookepuss

    Diaz is not even 37 yet. <p> <p> Say what you will though, if you ever got a chance to meet her, you'd cream your pants before saying hello. =) <p> <p> And the thing about her ass.... She's never had much of one. She just knows how to shake it and display it. I think that she looked her hottest in Charlie's Angels 2. She was hot in the Mask, but she still kinda had this baby fat look to her - being 21yrs old and all.<p> <p> As far as this movie goes, I think that 90% or more of the movie going audience won't have an idea who the hell the Green Hornet is. Really. I was born in 1974 and only vaguely remember the Bruce Lee Kato cameos from the 1960s Batman TV show. <p> <p> The property is something like 70+ years old when you include the radio show. The average 18-35 moviegoer is just way too young to actually remember the Green Hornet.<p> <p> Hollywood can pretty much do anything with the property at this point and only a hardcore few will care. It's not Superman we're talking about, whose presence in the public eye has been constant since the 1940s. Green Hornet is one of those things from a generation long ago, way before any of us here were born.<p> <p> Personally, as comedies go, I'd actually like to see the Brown Hornet. (You 2 Fat Albert fans here will get that one. =) )

  • July 8, 2009, 9:12 p.m. CST

    As for Rogen

    by cookepuss

    Don't worry. Hollywood will suck his career dry and rape his soul just like they've done to Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler, Jimmy Fallon, Tom Hanks, and just about every other "flavor of the month" comedian. <p> <p> Let him enjoy his 15 minutes of fame. It's only a matter of time before nobody finds him funny and he resorts to drama and/or starts begging for change on the freeway.

    Hey, ReelMan, the garbage strike not bad enough?

    by kabong

    Just joking. Get a thick skin. Don't take any crap from me. <P> It's not a bad piece of work, but it's not going to win any awards. <P> Acting? Uh uh. They've got to forget there's a camera on them. <P> Dialogue? Too mundane, as somebody else indicated. Half as much but twice as punchy. <P> Maybe some recutting would help. Yeah, I know you want that suggestion. <P> Make the hand-washing shorter and put more emphasis on Genevieve saying, "It's showtime," or whatever she says. Maybe tilt up for some contrast between blood going down the drain and her kissing her image. <P> When Neil is lying to his wife, a little more irony might be good. Cut in some bars and hookers from his POV during his phone chat. <P> The shot where Neil rolls out of the car needs more set-up, IMHO. Maybe a shot/reverse shot of the two of them in the car with some sudden realization hitting Neil just before the blade. <P> Just suggesting. Good luck. You'll be the next Cronenberg while the rest of us at this brain trust will still be yackbacking.

    by AnnoyYou

    The lumplike Rogen, a Kato played by a cougar - pure comedy gold! Thank God it's one of the lesser superhero stories. I'm sure they're hoping for a reprise of "Iron Man;" what they're going to get is subpar-"Watchmen" (if there is such a thing). Bleh.

    A modern Bruce Lee-less remake of The Green Hornet starring Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz. Do I need to say more, or have you read between the lines yet? Ol' Smeg won't be paying to see it, let's put it that way. Asteroids The Movie is starting to sound better. Who would have thought..?

    It's the fucking Green Hornet! No one cares! Who's idea is this? It's a dopey Spirit rip-off in a green mask with a side of Kung Fu fuck stain. Don't just stand there, ToGo, get me some fucking Moo Gai Pan! I can't fight crime now, I'm hungry! I can probably fight crime after I eat that foul dog slop you people make, but only for a little while; I'll probably be hungry again in half an hour, so come to think of it, make it a double order! And bring your sister back with you. I need my dick sucked. Two dollah! Speaking of magical swirling ass action, have you ever considered Carmen Diaz's asshole? I mean, really thought about it? I know, it's probably squeezed out 6 thousand turds by now, but would you lick it? Do you think Justin licked it? I'd lick it. God, I miss Michael. We are the world. I'm sorry, I'm grieving.

    God this sounds like a mess

    by blackshuck

    The only thing it has going for it is that other than old geeks like Harry, there's almost no public awareness of the character, so they can pretty much do what they want to it, or 'deconstruct' it - or as I like to say, 'piss all over it'. Gondry? Jesus...I know he's clever and all, but I just can't fucking stand his films. Too cute by half.

  • July 9, 2009, 7:15 a.m. CST

    by Halloween68

    Chow plays Kato. The dude is perfect for the role. Since Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, I can't imagine anyone else playing him. Even Jaa. Especially if there is a comdedic element which it sounds like they're shooting for with Rogen as the Hornet.

    THE GREEN HORNET could've been a

    by Master Bruce

    straight action film...but obviously not w/Seth Rogen in the lead. If they want to make it an action-comedy, then Rogen should play Britt Reid's stoner nephew who accidentally stumbles upon his uncle's Green Hornet gear & w/Kato's help-played by Jackie Chan- he decides to give crime fighting a try for himself. Again not my preferred way, but w/this cast & a 1930s-era character, probably the only way to get asses in seats today.

    ...if they did, for the love of god, PLEASE cast an Asian woman! Hollywood really knows how to screw properties up....I know the headline was a joke, but it honestly wouldn't have surprised me if it were true.... If there was a girl Kato, though, what about Gianna Jun? In her U.S. film debut?
