This is AMAZING. PLease hold onto your seats and try not to jump from utter joy at this awesome news. Actually, screw it. Jump for Joy. In fact, I encourage it!
Jemaine Clement, one half of the musical comedy duo The Flight of the Conchords, has nabbed the role of the villain in Men in Black 3!
Look at this sly Mother F***er!
Men in Black 3 was announce a little over three weeks ago with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back to reprise their roles as Agent J & Agent K. I can only imagine most of the original cast will be back for the third installment which is to take them back to a mission in 1969, where they will meet Clements as well as other alien life-forms.
Personally I couldn’t be more excited to see Jemaine Clements back in full force. However, for all of you who were fans of the hit HBO series Flight of the Conchords, I’m obviously preaching to the choir. Since the comedy duo decided not to continue the series, Clements has been focusing on a film career. You may remember him from Gentlemen Broncos. He’ll also be making an appearance in the summer comedy Dinner for Schmucks along side Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell.
While I was going to see this movie anyway, now I’m excited. Super stoked even. They haven’t even started filming yet. I’ll be following this project very closely now and more updates to follow.
The Flight of the Conchords will be performing at the Hollywood Bowl at the end of May.
Men in Black 3 is set to hit theaters May 25, 2012.
