Variety is reporting that Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of The Green Hornet as the big bad boss that will attempt to unite the crime bosses of Los Angeles.  Those who have seen “Inglourious Basterds” will recognize Waltz as the Nazi Colonel from the film.

Seth Rogen plays the titular role in “The Green Hornet,” a newspaper publisher by day who becomes a masked crime fighter at night. Asian pop star Jay Chou plays his martial arts-skilled sidekick and chauffeur Kato, while Cameron Diaz plays the love interest.

The Green Hornet is currently shooting in Los Angeles, and is scheduled for a December 17, 2010 release.

    Woo-hoo! That is awesome. I might actually watch this movie now.

    I just hope that Waltz’ next big role after that will not be a super-villain again, since he is an immensely talented actor and as a European in the US, you tend to get type-cast.
