On the final episode of Dinner for Five, Jon Favreau and guests discussed the legendary "is" credit. The only person at the table to have received an "is" credit in his lifetime was, surprisingly, Peter Billingsley, who was given an "is" credit for The Dirt Bike Kid. The "is" credit is indeed rare, so when it comes along we must congratulate the actor or actress enjoying this royal honor. And, as you can see above, Hollywood has given out another "is" credit, and it's gone to ... Seth Rogen.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen ... Seth Rogen is The Green Hornet. Sony has established a teaser site for the previously-announced film, which comes with a nice shade of green and a release date of June 25, 2010. Still a far way to go, but I'm sure it will be well worth the wait. Rogen will play newspaper publisher Britt Reid, who, at night, fights crime as a masked superhero known as The Green Hornet with Kato, a martial arts expert, at his side. This version of GH was written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express), and there's no director currently attached.
So, who's looking forward to this one?
