Nicolas Cage to be the big bad in The Green Hornet

Stephen Chow is out so they are looking for a new Kato. Seth Rogen has been getting in shape to play the titular hero and Cameron Diaz was recently announced to star in the Michel Gondry directed film that may be funny, may be dramatic, may be whatever as they are still unsure what direction to take the film in.

Now Variety announced that Nicolas Cage - he of the pointing, shouting, twitching and variable hair - is in the early stages of playing the Gangster Villain of the piece.

I know in the past I have given the Cagester some stick, but I do like him. It is just that lately he has made some naff decisions with regards scripts and the way to play the characters he portrays. He seems to have been just going through the motions and become a parody of his former self.

Maybe, just maybe, with The Sorcerer's Apprentice and now this he may get himself back on the cool map. All depends on the length of his hair when he plays the part. I really must write up my theory on Cage's hair length versus the quality of his films.

Do you think Cage will be a good bad guy in the Green Hornet? Should he play it loud and crazy or quiet and subtle?
