Seth Rogen - Chou Impressed Rogen And Gondry With English Language Skills

Actor SETH ROGEN and director MICHEL GONDRY were left stunned by how quickly Taiwanese pop star JAY CHOU mastered the English language for his role in THE GREEN HORNET, because he could only string together a few words before the cameras rolled.
Chou stars as Rogen's sidekick Kato in the new big screen adaptation of the popular comic books, and Gondry reveals casting the singer-turned-actor in the superhero movie was an easy decision to make.
He says, "We had a conference on (video calling software) Skype where Seth was reading with Jay and we felt there was already chemistry, even though it was with a 10-second delay, and we liked him for his acting."
And the Knocked Up star admits he was highly impressed by Chou's determination to learn how to converse in English so he could perfect his film role.
Rogen says, "He knew very little (English) when we started filming and a few weeks in, he could improvise his own dialogue and come up with his own jokes, which was very frustrating because that took me years to learn how to do!"
