Seth Rogen learns to drive Black Beauty in “Green Hornet” clip


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re starting to get excited about Michel Gondry’s “The Green Hornet,” which casts Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, a billionaire playboy turned masked superhero. The 3D action adventure opens next Friday, Jan. 14, which means we are going to see a healthy number of clips and teases between now and then.

One of the first, which landed on Yahoo! Movies this morning, shows Rogen and Jay Chou (playing the Hornet’s sidekick, Kato) trying to make a quick escape in their souped-up vehicle, the Black Beauty. Needless to say, it doesn’t go as planned.

What I like about the clip is that it suggests Gondry, who directed the spectacular “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” has figured out how to introduce comedy to this world … which is why I figured he went against type and put Rogen in the lead in the first place. The presence of Cameron Diaz in the love-interest role of Lenore Case only solidifies this belief.

Anyway, we’ll know much more about “Hornet” once it opens, which is soon.
