Olmos joins The Green Hornet

The legendary Edward James Olmos (“Battlestar Galactica”, “Blade Runner”, “Stand & Deliver”) will have a role in Sony’s feature film adaptation of tube classic “The Green Hornet”.

Olmos, forever treasured for his role as the gruff Captain Adama in Ron Moore’s “Galactica” revamp, tells HollywoodSnitch that, “It’ll be a lot of fun with Seth [Rogen], Nicolas Cage and Cameron Diaz.”

He doesn’t reveal what role he’s playing, but I think it’s safe to say it’ll be some kind of authority figure. Right?
