'The Asian Justin Timberlake' Hits America in 'Green Hornet'

by: Matt McDaniel

Jay Chou as Kato

So why would you hire a guy who didn't speak English and didn't have a martial arts background to star in an American action movie in the role that made Bruce Lee famous? According to Seth Rogen, the star and co-writer of the new comedic superhero movie "The Green Hornet," newcomer Jay Chou got the part because
"[it] was immediately clear that he was super cool."Collapse )

Seth Rogen & Jay Chou in 'The Green Hornet'

The superhero/sidekick dynamic is usually defined by very rigid standards. The hero is brave, tough, and resourceful. The sidekick is funny and plucky but generally irrelevant.But that's never been the case with "The Green Hornet." The man behind the Hornet's mask is Britt Reid, a rich newspaper magnate with a passion for fighting crime. But he doesn't have superpowers. In fact, he barely has regular powers. The guy with the real skills is his sidekick, Kato. Kato is a master of martial arts. He's an inventor. He even gets to drive around in their high-tech armored car.

With that in mind, it makes sense that funnyman Seth Rogen would get cast as the Green Hornet. Rogen, who also co-wrote the script, doesn't really come off as the superhero type -- even after losing a significant amount of weight for the part. But since his character is supposed to be learning how to be a hero, it makes sense.

Of course, the Hornet depends on Kato to make him look good, and doing the same for Rogen is Jay Chou.Collapse )

Jay Chou prudent over choosing partner, definitely won't get divorced

On the 19th Jay Chou went on UFO Radio to promote his new album "The Era", the presenter Joseph Wang asked: "What kind of girl does your mother like?" He thought about it and said: "I guess someone who is filial and can do housework." Joseph Wang concluded: "So outward appearance is not important?" He laughed shouting: "I think it's important!" The mother and son are close, but their view on girls is very different.

Jay Chou wants everything to be diao, but he has a side when he returns to his family, Nicholas Tse has given him some food for thought, "In the past I went to Hong Kong often, I bumped into him when he was still unmarried, but after I bumped into him later, he was already a father, I talked to him about being a father, it was pretty special." Tse is 30 this year, Jay Chou is a year older, seeing him already a father of two, he's not in a hurry but his attitude is rather contradictory.

"If I had kids, I can take them out to play, go on shows, but once I go abroad, what will I do since I can't accompany them?" He said, once he gets married, there's no way he'll get divorced, "So I'll carefully choose (my other half)."

Recently he's had a lot of run-ins with girls, "Game Female Wu Kong" Honey Chen was said to have been to his room, he helplessly said: "My mother is very conservative, she believes the media very easily. She even asked me, 'When did your room have so many stars?' It's not like my room is the UFO Radio office, plus I'm not that romantic."

Besides this, Mainland China Beijing are holding the competition for musical "In Love With Teresa Teng", the producer Li Dun has already invited Jay Chou and Leehom Wang to produce the music for this musical, Li Dun revealed: "Jay Chou's company is very interested in this." Yesterday Jay Chou said about this: "I'm not clear about it, everything will be arranged by the company."
