The Jew Hunter Hunts the Green Hornet

Christopher Waltz

Fresh off his stint as the Jew Hunter in Inglourious Basterds, Christopher Waltz will face off against Seth Rogan as the villain in The Green Hornet. Now I’m torn. I really like Waltz. His performance in Basterds was glorious and I’d love to see him in more stuff. But I don’t want to see him in stuff that will suck. An action comedy Green Hornet is not something that I want to see and I doubt very much that fans of the original Green Hornet radio drama or even the television show will much appreciate this re-envisioning. It will probably make a fuck ton of cashola because if I think it’s horribly fucking stupid, it’s almost guaranteed to make a fuck ton. If that’s what it takes to get Waltz more exposure in America, that’s fine. I just hope he doesn’t get mistakenly type-cast as the “goofy villain.”
