12. Seth Rogen, 'Green Hornet'
Perched somewhere between the relentless goofiness of 21 Jump Street and Starsky and Hutch and the slightly more serious-minded Spider-Man and Batman franchises, Michel Gondry's decidedly odd take on the radio/TV/comic classic mixes dark vigilante justice with candy-colored irreverence. In that light, the idea of pudgy, awkward Seth Rogen playing the millionaire publisher turned masked crime-fighter doesn't seem so odd, especially since a lot of the heroics come from his infinitely more gifted sidekick Kato (Jay Chou). But Rogen gets a decent number of badass moments here as well, several of them involving his tricked-out crime-fighting Chrysler Imperial, the Black Beauty. It's a fun comic transformation that becomes increasingly convincing as the movie goes on.
