THE GREEN HORNET gets his Kato in Taiwanese Superstar Jay Chou.
Deadlinehollywooddaily have released a press statment from Michel Gondry and Jay Chou on taking up the part:
Michel Gondry, the film’s director, added, “Jay is incredibly unique and charming and fights like a wild dog! When I filmed him next to Seth, they had such great chemistry, and I knew the movie will be great."

Chou said, “It’s an overwhelming experience to take on a role made famous by Bruce Lee. I won’t try to be Bruce Lee’s Kato – I will try to bring my own interpretation to the part. Of course, it’s a dream role, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
