It might actually be worth watching. Joining an elite group that includes J.J. Abrams and Quentin Tarantino, Green Hornet director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) will direct an episode of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. Thursday night's episode will feature his star, Seth Rogen.

The last time Rogen was on the show on June 21 last year, the studio lost power and Kimmel grumpily shot the show from his laptop’s webcam, ordering Rogen to look at the computer instead of the audience (he didn't always comply). We can expect much more from Gondry, who is a top commercial and music video director. Green Hornet opens Friday.
