#3: BRUCE LEE AS KATO IN THE GREEN HORNET (1966-1967)
Decades before Seth Rogen and Jay Chou stepped into The Green Hornet's and Kato’s shoes, Van Williams and Bruce Lee portrayed the crime-fighting duo on a short-lived ABC series. Fortunately for us, Rogen isn’t a boring stiff like Williams; Chou, on the other hand, has a much bigger black eye-mask to wear. The Green Hornet introduced American TV viewers to martial arts kingpin Lee, who effortlessly stole the show and went on to star in several classic kung fu flicks. In Lee’s native Hong Kong, it was called The Kato Show. Can’t argue with that.
