Jemaine Clement, one half of the notoriously funny singer/songwriter/rapper duo Flight of the Conchords, is in the final stages of being cast as a villain in the upcoming Men in Black III.
While the name of the character has metamorphosed from Yaz to Boris while the script has been developed, he has been described as charming and creepy at the same time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Clement, who declined a third season of his hit HBO show, has been seen recently in Gentlemen Broncos and will be seen soon in Jay Roach’s Dinner for Schmucks.
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are both back on-board for the film, along with Josh Brolin, who will play a younger version of Jones’s character. Other villains, if there are any, have yet to be cast.
The movie is expected to be released sometime in 2012.
