In the new film, Rogen plays partyboy Britt Reid, the son of a murdered newspaper publisher who realizes his life has been a complete waste. So, naturally, he becomes a superhero.
Along with mysterious martial arts expert Kato, Reid becomes the vigilante Green Hornet and goes to battle against the city's baddies using a arsenal of cool weaponry.
Also starring in the film is Cameron Diaz, who plays Reid's secretary. In one scene, she lays a beating on Rogen. But he didn't mind.

"She's far more physically capable than I am," Rogen said in an interview with iVillage. "She's like a real athlete, and I am not an athlete. I am soft. I think she could kick my ass in real life, so it only seemed right that she kick my ass in the movie."
Rogen also talks about the great tights discussion that went on behind the scenes.
"There was a big tights debate, but ultimately I think the world was not ready for me in 3D in tights," Rogen says. "That's just too much stimulus for people ... You just can't bombard people with that much visual imagery."
Yeah, just stick to the explosions. Catch The Green Hornet when it opens in theaters everywhere this weekend.
