Should Nicolas Cage be the Green Hornet villain?

The Green HornetI'm not sure if Green Hornet fans are looking forward to the new big-screen movie based on the 60s TV show that starred Van Williams and Bruce Lee. First they grimaced when they found out that Seth Rogen was not only writing the movie but would also play The Green Hornet (even if he has slimmed down), and now comes word that Nicolas Cage might play the villain.

Is this a good or a bad thing? Cage can be uniquely awesome in some roles but alienating in other roles.

I think the important question is, should Seth Rogen be the Green Hornet? Nothing against Seth but I have never understood that casting.

I don't believe that having Nicholas Cage as the Green Hornet villain will ruin it... that happened when the decided that Seth Rogen should play the lead.

I don't mind Nicholas Cage, but unless this is a second-rate teen comedy, why is Seth Rogen involved with it?

I imagine because he wants to bridge out from comedies, and this is a subject he has a great love for.

pretty much indifferent about Cage. Like you said, he can be great or bleh...

Hey, isn't that Stephen Colbert as Cato in your pic??
