Michel Gondry has found his Kato

When Michel Gondry replaced Stephen Chow as director on the big screen adaptation of The Green Hornet, it was obviously only a matter of time before Chow dropped out of the film all together, leaving the role of the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato, up for grabs.

After screen testing many of Asia's hunky young dreamboats, they've finally decided to cast pop star/actor, Jay Chou.

IMDB's trivia page for Chou states:
-Favorite current actor is Jet Li, though his childhood dream was to "become Bruce Lee".
-Favorite Sports include Basketball and using nun-chucks, for leisure purposes only, courtesy of his fondness of Bruce Lee.

So dreams do come true. Even if they're in the form of unnecessary TV to film adaptations made by the odd couple of Michel Gondry and Seth Rogan.

Chou will next be seen in Yuen Woo-ping's TRUE LEGEND.
