Academy Award winning director Michel Gondry wants to take on absolutely everything! His latest film, The Green Hornet hits theaters this Friday and as an added bonus he’ll be taking over “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this Thursday to promote his film and show us something we’ve never seen before. He’s not the first director to have done it, Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams have both directed episodes in the past to promote their films, but he may be the craziest one so far!
The episode will feature none other than an interview with The Green Hornet himself, Seth Rogen. The last time Rogen was on the show, the studio lost power and Kimmel grabbed his laptop shooting the entire show from his computer’s webcam. Hopefully this time there will actually be something for Gondry to direct!
Though Gondry is most well known for his award winning film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind he’s also directed multiple music videos for artists such as Bjork, Paul McCartney and The White Stripes. this week, Gondry will be returning to his musical side and directing a live performance The Damned Things
Tune into “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday, January 13, at 12:05am ET/PT to see what Gondry will get up to!
