Edward James Olmos Boards Green Hornet

Hollywood Snitch learned from “Battlestar Galactica” star Edward James Olmos this weekend that he has landed a role in Columbia Pictures’ The Green Hornet. The site reports:

I spoke with actor Edward James Olmos yesterday at Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con. Among discussing his past (“Blade Runner”) and present (“Battlestar Galactica” and the upcoming TV film), he dropped he said of his future plans that he will be joining Michel Gondry’s “The Green Hornet.”

“I’m on my way to do ‘The Green Hornet,'” Olmos told me. “It’ll be a lot of fun with Seth [Rogen], Nicolas Cage and Cameron Diaz.”

There’s no word yet on what role he might play. The studio announced on Friday that Jay Chou will play Kato in the July 9, 2010 release. Michel Gondry direct.
