Character Revealed and Mishaps on Set for 'Green Hornet'

Mishap apparently is on the set of "The Green Hornet". A car chase scene went awry earlier this month when a stunt driver lost control of his car and crashed into the front of the Creative Artists Agency's headquarters. While the stuntman escaped without injury and none of the stars were involved, the film crew's construction department were seen working all day making repairs.

Now after that, the Los Angeles set of the film saw a bomb scare unraveling on September 29 as crew members found an unidentified metal object lying in the parking lot.

Following the discovery, the crew alerted the security which led to response from the LAPD bomb squad. The squad reportedly blew up the object on the spot with a robot. A police spokesman told E! News, "Everything is clear, they only found a smoke detector." It is unclear whether the stars, including Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz, were on the set during the incident.
In some positive news for the film, fans learned back in August that "Battlestar Galactica's" Edward James Olmos had joined the cast of "The Green Hornet," but his role remained unrevealed.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Olmos said he'd be playing Michael Axford, a reporter for the Daily Sentinel, the newspaper run by protagonist Britt Reid's father James.

"We’re the backbone of the paper,” said Olmos, “Things go awry, and I end up having to try to sustain what’s going on in our lives. And of course the Green Hornet doesn’t make it any easier. I don’t want to give anything away.

“I think it’s going to be very exciting. People will find that it’s different than what they expect. Seth is doing a wonderful job. There’s a lot of everything. It’s going to be action-filled, and there’s a lot of humor in the situations. It’s really a well-crafted piece of work. Hopefully people will enjoy it and we’ll have a few of these films.”

What do you think about Olmos being in "The Green Hornet"? And what do you think about some of the problems on set?
