Seth Rogen Says Nicolas Cage Wanted to Play the Villain in “Green Hornet"

Screening Of Summit Entertainment's "Drive Angry 3D" - Red Carpet


Seth Rogen says the part of the villain in “Green Hornet” almost went to Nicolas Cage…but his idea for it was too weird.  He wanted to play the role as a “white Bahamian or Jamaican.”

Seth said, “Yeah, not that there aren’t white Bahamians, but it seemed perhaps insensitive…

“We [went to] dinner with Nicolas, and I [was like] ‘If he does the white Bahamian thing at the dinner, I’m going to lose it’…and within 20 minutes of getting to the dinner he’s fully doing it.”
