Green Hornet has its Kato

After a long search to replace Stephen Chow, Michel Gondry and the Green Hornet team have picked Jay Chou to play Kato.

Taiwan-born Chou is something of a phenomenon in Asia, as an accomplished musician who more recently began appearing in movies, and notched up a role in Zhang Zimou's The Curse Of The Golden Flower.

And Gondry seems happy with the choice. “Jay is incredibly unique and charming and fights like a wild dog!" he said in a press release, sounding somewhat like a villain introducing his fight-ready henchman.

"When I filmed him next to Seth, they had such great chemistry, and I knew the movie will be great."

Well, that remains to be seen, but at least it looks like the Hornet now has a full cast in place...

What do you think of the casting? Have you seen Chou besides Golden Flower? Speak!
