Cameron Diaz Confirms "Green Hornet"

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

 
"I'm in" Cameron Diaz recently told MTV when asked about her involvement in the Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry " Green Hornet" film, currently in development. Diaz has officially squashed the rumors and confirmed that she will be playing the role of Lenore "Casey" Case who is traditionally Britt Reid's (played by Rogen,) secretary and one of the few characters that are aware of the crime-fighting Reid partakes during his after hours. However, it seems that the interpretation of Casy's character will be considerably different from "Casey's" traditional character role. In Gondry's interpretation, "Casey" will be a divorcee and amateur detective who is unaware of Green Hornet's identity.

 
The interpretation of her character hints that the film will be very different from its historical incarnation, and that her character as well as the entire film will be modernized.


“I think she’ll have her own little [differences],” explained the “Charlie’s Angels” series star. “I’m going with Michel, because this is Michel’s movie and Seth’s movie. So, I’m playing the character that they wrote for us.”


I suppose this answers a lot of questions about what we can expect for the upcoming "Green Hornet" film; however, I continue to remain skeptical about Seth Rogen's ability to play an action role. What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing Cameron Diaz play opposite Rogen's character on the big screen?

I am just extremely curious.  To me it seems like a so-crazy-it-might-just-work kind of formula.

Can't say I'm crazy about this choice... but I'm sure she'll do a good job with plenty of laughs too.

Ditto.   
 Just to add I'm actually saving some money this year by not seeing any of the craptastic movies that have been puked out.  
  Just as well, more money will go to RD JR., Favreau, and Company when Iron Man 2 hits the theatres.

I totally agree! at first I was like "uh! Could interesting... Might be fun to see Nick Cage ACTUALLY play the bad guy for once!" But it's like every week some new story comes out for this movie that just makes me not want to see it! 
 
Cameron Diaz shouldn't play a love interest in any movie! At best, she should play the bitter, married, older sister of the love interest! LOL

Isn't Jack Black supposed to be in this,and now Cameron? As I said before,way to make a mockery of something epic.

I had never seen this picture before. Wow, I think this is one of the more lovely images of Diaz I've ever seen. Airbrushed or no. She looks nicer as a brunette. Blond is 'cute', but this is sultry.
That bracelet reminds me a little of Wonder Woman's gauntlet. Just without the flower
