Posing like villains, acting like heroes, rolling in an indestructible mobile fortress dubbed “The Black Beauty,” and terrorizing the streets of L.A. pyrotechnics style: These are just a fraction of the things you’ll see in the new Michel Gondry 3D action comedy, The Green Hornet.

We’re pretty sure we’re in for a wild ride, but we want to know what you think after watching interviews with leading lady Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz (who plays the villain Benjamin Chudnofsky), the funny Seth Rogen, and Superbad writing partner Evan Goldberg, plus the genius behind it all Michel Gondry.

Will this be another Gondry type of film? We’re betting fans of his work are asking the same question.  Listen to director Michel Gondry chat about the film’s style, as well as what Cameron Diaz and Jay Chou (who plays Kato) bring to the table.

Seth Rogen is the writer and executive producer of The Green Hornet. We were surprised, too. Listen to the comedian talk about balancing action and meaningful moments in his first superhero film.

Christoph Waltz plays the villain Chudnofsky. Listen to the actor describe his character–he uses words like “lovable” and “cuddly.”

Cameron Diaz talks about the things she loves about The Green Hornet; specifically, the unnamed, masked driver and his sidekick.

It would be strange if Seth Rogen wasn’t joined by his writing partner Evan Goldberg, both of which share writing credits for Pineapple Express and Superbad. Listen to Evan further expand on the subject of blending action and comedy in his new film.

Kato is the Hornet’s assistant and has been played by a number of actors including Bruce Lee. Jay Chou talks about playing this kick-ass role and his relationship with The Green Hornet.

Neal H. Moritz has produced some great action films including Fast & Furious, and I Am Legend. Listen to the producer talk about his chemistry with Gondry, Evan and Seth. An interesting mix of talent, but admit it — you’re intrigued.

The Green Hornet is released January 14, 2011.

So are you finally excited for The Green Hornet?
