Seth Rogen as "The Green Hornet": Not as bad as you might have imagined


The first trailer for Michel Gondry's "The Green Hornet" has indeed been unveiled (and the first picture is above), but if you'll indulge me for just a few seconds during a short post today (have to get to work early so I can take off during tomorrow's U.S.A.-Algeria match), there were a few great things that also caught my eye.

First up comes some confirmation that when Harold and Kumar finally return again for Christmas day 2011 with "A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas," they're gonna bring the serious funny. Shooting has just begun, and word came out yesterday that veryfunnyman Patton Oswalt has joined the cast, though I'm not sure yet in what capacity. "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay," while far from awful, wasn't nearly as funny as "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," but here's hoping that as Harold at least finally tries to grow up in the third installment, the guys go out on top (assuming this will be the final chapter of the stoner saga - but here's hoping I'm wrong again.)

Secondly, and this can really be a shock to absolutely no one, HBO has gone ahead and ordered a fourth season of "True Blood" just as the third season is getting going. While the first two season three episodes have been heavy on exposition, they've also been as wickedly funny as the show has ever been, and though I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read Charlayne Harris' sensationally entertaining Sookie Stackhouse novels, I'll just say that the arrival of lovably dimwitted Jason (Ryan Kwanten) in Hotshot is going to signal a major transformation, probably as soon as episode three, that you definitely don't want to miss. Stay tuned ...

And thirdly before we finally get to "The Green Hornet," I just assumed the World Cup ratings headline in the U.S.A. was going to be "Blame it on the Vuvuzuelas," but I guess I should have a little more faith. In fact, per the Hollywood Reporter, "through the first 14 matches of the World Cup, ESPN and ABC have delivered an average crowd of 3.35 million viewers, marking a 64% increase from the same period in 2006, when the nets drew 2.9 million fans. The initial portion of the round-robin stage was distinguished by the much-anticipated June 12 U.S.-England tie, which drew 13 million viewers on ABC, making it the most-watched first round World Cup game in U.S. broadcast history." Bully. And again, just in case you're looking for an excuse to drink a beer or two for breakfast tomorrow, U.S.A. v. Algeria for all the marbles tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. Tune in.

OK, indeed the main event here was supposed to be the unveiling of the first trailer for "The Green Hornet," and here it is. And although the idea of Seth Rogen as a superhero raises its fair share of doubts, he really doesn't embarrass himself here. The problem, at least in this snippet, is that it really doesn't show any of the signature trippy style of director Michel Gondry, who seems to have been tamed by the superhero flick. Anyways, there are certainly worse ways to spend two-and-a-half minutes of a workday morning, so enjoy, and have a perfectly passable Tuesday. Peace out.
