Joshua Erenberg Talks About The Green Hornet
Recentlyly I got to speak with Joshua Erenberg who makes his film debut in The Green Hornet playing the younger version of the title character. I want to thank Joshua and Kelli for the interview
GVK: How did you become involved with Hornet and what can you tell us about the films and your character?
JE: I got involved after auditioning several times and everyone felt I looked like a young Seth Rogen. I play the Green Hornet as a young boy and my character basically sets up the story showing how Britt felt about his Dad.
GVK: What sort of research did you do for the film as it must have been tough when you consider the comic, series, and radio show were done decades before you were even born.
JE: My Dad bought me a bunch of The Green Hornet comic books. I enjoyed reading them and learned all about the history of the characters. I am now a fan!
GVK: What were some of the more memorable moments from filming and what are some of your fondest memories?
JE: I’d have to say it was when I went in an elevator and it just went up until the set was gone completely.
GVK: Did you get a chance to meet and work with Seth and how was that?
JE: Seth was great…He was really hands on and helped me out when I was doing my scenes.
GVK: What can you tell the readers about your training in acting and about your big break in the film?
JE: I have been taking acting classes for a few years now and had gone on close to a hundred auditions before I got my big break. This was a great opportunity for my first role as an actor.
GVK: If you can, tell the readers about your time on set and how you found the whole experience of making a movie. I know many people often say that they are surprised how much waiting goes on but that they cant believe how much is going on.
JE: It was a great experience. There was a lot of waiting around but director Michel Gondry and the cast were really wonderful. Michel would let me sit in his chair and showed me what was going on in the scene. I now want to be a director as well as an actor, thanks to Michel.
GVK: What future projects do you have coming up that the readers can look forward to?
JE: I will be guest starring in an up coming episode of the Adult Swim comedy,”Childrens Hospital.” My character is really funny!
GVK: What movies have you seen recently and what do you have on your to see list?
JE: Well, of course I’ve seen The Green Hornet more than once. I’m looking forward to seeing how the new Smurfs movie is made because I used to watch the old cartoon on DVD.
