“The Green Hornet” was released in January 2011
Prior to Christoph Waltz joining the cast in the villain role, Nicolas Cage was being courted by Sony.
Sony wanted a star aka Nicolas Cage to play the villain.
Cage wanted to play the character as, like, a white Bahamian or Jamaican.
Rogen thought this idea seemed insensitive.
At the dinner to discuss this role with Amy Pascal, Cage was doing a Bahamian accent, then no one felt casting Cage was appropriate.
The movie bombed at the box office.
Rogen wondered if casting Cage and letting him do his crazy thing would’ve been better for the movie.
