During the 2009 Comic-Con, actor Seth Rogen and director Michael Gondry revealed more details regarding The Green Hornet. Cameron Diaz is rumored to star as Rogen’s love interest in the action/comedy film. Check out what they said about her character below!
â€œLenore Case, would be her role,â€ Rogen said of Diaz, confirming that out of the several female leads in the â€œGreen Hornetâ€ radio, TV and movie incarnations over the last 70 years, the â€œCharlieâ€™s Angelsâ€ star will be playing the character nicknamed â€œCasey.â€ â€œAssuming all the deals close, which it looks like they will.â€
â€œIn the original show there was Britt Reid, Kato and Lenore Case their secretary,â€ explained Evan Goldberg, Rogenâ€™s longtime writing/producing partner. â€œShe was one of the only people who knew they were The Green Hornet and Kato. Cameron Diaz is a new development, weâ€™re real excited, she plays a secretary for Britt Reid.â€
As director Michael Gondry was quick to point out, however, their take on Casey will be quite different â€“ including a Lois Lane-like obliviousness to GHâ€™s identity, and an affinity for crime TV.
