  It seems as though this "Green Hornet" film is actually going to happen. According to a report by Sci Fi, actor Edward James Olmos has joined the cast of the upcoming Green Hornet film. Elmos is best known for his roles in "Battlestar Gallactica," "Miami Vice," and "Blade Runner," and will join Nicolas Cage, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz and Seth Rogen in the upcoming film.

How do you guys feel about Edward James Olmos? Are you looking forward to the upcoming "Green Hornet" film now that news regarding the film's cast seems for the most part to have been released?

I'm not an Olmos fan, but I admit that he's a good actor.
 
I'm really interested in how this movie turns out.  As a Seth and Green Hornet fan, I'll be watching it.

Given what Rogen has said what he intends to do with the character I am not liking any news attached to it, regardless who comprises the list of actors.  Olmos must need to pay his mortgage.  Why Cage is involved I fail to grasp, maybe he lit up a doobie with Rogen one day and Rogen convinced him to appear in the movie.  Personally I think it has fail written all over it.  If I'm wrong that's fine and I'd be happy if I am wrong because I'd like a Green Hornet movie to be done nicely.  
 
This could be The Spirit all over again, that movie had top name actors in it.  *sighs*

Olmos is the only name attached to this project that doesn't make me shudder. I know that Rogen promised that it wasn't going to be an out and out comedy/spoof, but it still has the vibe of Jack Black's pitch to lampoon Green Lantern a couple of years back.
 
Edit: I hope at least this will prompt a release of the Van Williams/Bruce Lee TV series on DVD.

Meh.  While EJO is a capable actor, I am still having doubts about this movie.

I love Olmos, love him in BSG.  I will give a thumbs up to Admiral Adama in anything.

 @Decept-O: Yeah, but this, to me, is a so-crazy-it-might-work kind of situation

 Olmos is great. His character in Battlestar Galactica was incredible. I do wonder what kind of character he would play in the end, and if he'd bring back that mustache he loves.

Olmos, may man, cash the check quick and laugh all the way to the back.  I hope they pay him a fat fee for this one.  He was great in BSG but I still think America Me was his high point as an actor.
 
So let me get my head around this, Nicholas Cage + Seth Rogan + one Metro-Sexual-Hong Kong Pop-star?!??!  How does that not add up to comedy?

Admiral Adama is in this? I may just watch it for that alone.

I just really hope Cage isn't playing Green Hornet. The show might of only had 13 episodes but I watched it like religiously as a child. I don't want to see him screw up another one of my favorite superheroes. I already think it's really dumb that their aiming for a more comedic movie. The show was always kind of dark and same with the few GH comics I've been able to obtain. Hollywood has to stop screwing over great fanchises.

I have a good feeling about this movie, except for the person who is playiny Kato. I would have chose Jackie Chan or Jet Lee.
