The Green Hornet is a masked crimefighter first featured on American radio in the 1930s. By day he is mild-mannered newspaper publisher BRITT REID, but at night he and his assistant KATO don masks and take to the streets in their super badass car, the BLACK BEAUTY, to take on crime in all its forms. Their trick is that even though they're heroes, they still have such a bad reputation with law enforcement that they're able to get closer to the criminal syndicates than they normally could, though you'd think they'd catch on after a while. I have some tapes of the old radio shows, which were pretty rad, along with a bunch of Shadow radio stories but that's neither here nor there.

(There was also a nifty little fact that Britt Reid is the Lone Ranger's great-nephew.)

After he got big on the radio, some comics came along:

There was also a TV series for a while in the 60s, which I really enjoyed re-runs of (and which had Bruce mo'fuckin' Lee as Kato):

And now there's a feature film starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz and Cameron Diaz, and directed by Michel Gondry!

And we can also talk about the Shadow and the Phantom if you want, they have a similar pulpy vibe.

    Nicolas Cage had the role originally but had to drop out. I'm really glad Waltz has it now.

    Actually, let me rephrase that. Cage was going to play the long-time villain Mr. X, but when he dropped out they created the new character for Waltz to play. So, not the same role per se.

    Talking about the Shadow, the old classic radio show is still pretty dang good. Obviously dated in many ways, but of the few I've listened to several have managed to be genuinely a shade creepy.

    They're always campy in an awesome way by the end of the story, but the vocal atmosphere produced is really good. Kinda wish we still had radio dramas. A well done one is an excellent experience that just isn't entirely replaced by even an equally well done TV show.

    I'll admit though that seeing Cage acting a villain might have been hilarious enough by itself to warrant seeing the movie. Has he ever done it before?

    Well he played both the hero and the villain of Face/Off, as did John Travolta. And then there was:

    Whenever I mention Billy Zane and no one knows he is, I always say he was the Phantom

    But then I just have to say that he was the "bad guy in Titanic"

    I dig the Phantom and I think Billy Zane was actually pretty good in the role, but it's too bad that basically every other aspect of that movie sucked.

    And now there's that Sci-Fi miniseries but I think the less said about that the better.

    dude isn't really that fat, he puts on weight for movies. he explains it that people find fat people funnier for most forms of comedy.
    plus he probably gets to eat like shit

    Not going to watch the trailer. Might actually stop watching trailers entirely. They're almost always poor indicators of the actual movie, especially if not being made by the same people who worked on the film itself.

    Should he be tripping through his dreams or memories or something? Or maybe the film could be comprised entirely of Legos?
