Academy Award winning director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind, The Science of Sleep) will direct the January 13th episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in an attempt to promote his upcoming film The Green Hornet. Star of the film, Seth Rogen, will appear as Kimmel’s big guest during the episode, alongside young actress Elle Fanning (Somewhere) and a musical performance by The Damned Things. I’d love to see what kind of unquie angle Gondry will take with a late night talk show, because if you ask me, that tv genre is in need of reinvention. Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams have directed previous episodes of the late night talk show. Read the full press release after the jump.
