Yeah, I agree, that was a terrible role for Rogen.

And while I was watching it I kept thinking that same thing, wondering how in the world a director or casting director could make such a blunder.
But I got my answer when the closing credits rolled:

Written & Produced by........drum roll, please...........Seth Rogen! LOL

I'm guessing he grew-up as a big Green Hornet fan, so when he got to be a big Hollywood name and had a little dough, he decided to make himself the Green Hornet

If you wanted a pure action or comic book movie yes, however as I saw it years after I first saw it, I actually didn't mind it. It was more of a comedy/action movie so to me it was fine for what it was. IMO, Kato is is the star of Green Lantern and was even in the series with Bruce Lee.

Here's my pick from another comic book movie, Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, the love interest of Hal Jordan in Green Lantern. She didn't emote and was a black hole anytime she was on. Everything else in the movie was decent to good, even great.

Sofia Coppola as Mary Corleone in "The Godfather Part Three.

The film had enough problems without the added distraction of her amateurish efforts.

The role seemed as star crossed as Mary Corleone herself. Winona Ryder had been cast, but became too ill to perform when shooting started. They wanted to replace her with Rebecca Schaeffer , but she was murdered by an insane fan while she was on her way to read for Francis Coppola.

I've mentioned this in other threads, so have some others, but wasn't Edgar G. Robinson's New York gangster snarl a bit out of place in "The Ten Commandments?" Ironically, Robinson was a Hungarian born Jew, but his family immigrated to New York when he was still little. Could have been worse, they might have had Jimmy Stewart as the voice of Yahweh.."Waalll, now, ugh...yeah, now the thing of it is Moses, you see, I ugh...."

And while we are on the subject, the Scottish descended Charlton Heston did not look too terribly Jewish in either "Ten Commandments" or "Ben-Hur."

Patrick Swayze as a Polish Priest in City of Joy. The whole thing was a joke.

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut. Despite being married at the time, no on-screen chemistry whatsoever.

Keaton was a good balanced Burce/Batman, he was much better at a balanced Bruce/Batman than George Clooney was in Batman & Robin. I will say Clooney was a GREAT Bruce Wayne but just sucked as Batman.
