Some of us laughed when it was announced that funnyman Seth Rogen would play the heroic Green Hornet in Michel Gondry's upcoming film, but now that Sony has released the first two official photos from the film, maybe it's time to stop laughing.

This isn't the first time we've seen Rogen (with Jay Chou as his Kato) suited up, but most of those other images were fuzzy on-set or behind-the-scenes photos, and we never got a clear look before. What do you think?

And check out Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight for the first peek at the trailer.

The Green Hornet will hit theaters on Jan. 14, 2011.
