This article says that the Green Hornet movie is written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, of Superbad and Pineapple Express fame. And, they chose this Chinese actor, Jay Chou, who barely speaks English to be Kato. I fear that this is gonna be a SUPER bad movie for Asian men. They are gonna probably use Kato as comedy relief, making those stereotypical Asian jokes that white people love to repeat over and over and over. The author of this article was wondering why a better English speaking Asian American actor wasn’t chosen. I wonder why? I bet they didn’t cast a more sophisticated Asian American actor simply because they didn’t want one. This movie is just gonna strengthen the stereotype that Asian guys are kung fu fighting comedy relief. Get ready for some abuse, SAMs.
