Oh, that's unfortunate. Do you know where the cable broke? If it just broke at the lever, you should be able to grab the end and still release the hood mechanism. If it broke further up the line where it's not accessible, then things get a little complicated. I'll have to check my grill area to see if you can access the latch by removing any components from the exterior (after work).

Checking the setup on my 06, there is limited access to the latching system through the grill, but the cable portion is masked by a small shroud. Like delhiboy3732 mentioned, the dealer will probably have a simple trick. I wish I could be more help.
