Jemaine Clement to be baddie in 'Men in Black 3'

“Flight of the Conchords” star Jemaine Clement is in final negotiations to play one of the villains in Columbia’s “Men in Black 3.”

Will Smith recently signed his deal to return as the alien-chasing government agent, as did returning director Barry Sonnenfeld.

Most of the action is taking place in 1969, with Josh Brolin playing a young Tommy Lee Jones, who will bookend the movie.

Most of the new casting will be the villains, whose identities, look and super-abilities are being kept under lock and key. It is known that Clement is playing a villain named Boris, who is described as being charmy and creepy at the same time. (The name Yaz was used as a filler name, and since the script is still being polished, there is a chance the name may change again.)

The CAA-repped Kiwi made a name for himself as one-half of the comedic singing duo in HBO’s “Conchords” and has been slowly making inroads into features. He appeared in the little-seen “Gentlemen Broncos” and has a role in the Steve Carrell-Paul Rudd comedy “Dinner for Schmucks.”

Jemaine Clement Confirmed for MIB III
He's playing the villain
Source: Deadline

Jemaine… Present! It would appear that Jemaine Clement has gone from being on the producers’ “possible” list for a role in Men In Black III to part of the cast.

According to Deadline, the Flight Of The Conchords star is now in place as Yaz, the Big Bad of the third film that has hit the warp speed button to production for a May 25, 2012 release date.

The threequel will see agents Jay (Will Smith) and Kay (Tommy Lee Jones) travelling back in time to sort out some intergalactic menace). Along the way, they apparently meet up with a younger version of Kay (Josh Brolin, assuming he locks in a deal).

Etan Cohen penned the script that got Sony excited to finally make the thing, with David Koepp polishing the shooting draft and Barry Sonnenfeld preparing to shoot it in 3D.

Clement is slowly notching up a healthy series of roles, having cropped up in last year’s Gentlemen Broncos and this year’s summer comedy Dinner For Schmucks. You’ll also be able to hear his voice in CGI ‘toon Despicable Me.

And though Jemaine and co-Conchord Brett McKenzie won’t be making another series of their HBO series (boo!), the boys are currently on tour (hooray!).

YAY Jemaine is gonna steal the scenes he is in no doubt especially if any of us are asked. :prayer: And I do not believe there will be pressure for him to carry the movie, those writers are awesome. The actors are top notch, I mean Josh Brolin and Will Smith! :clap:

Hey, now we can say (with a bad Russian accent) "Boris; Darling" :D

Yay! Oooh! I like the idea of him as a villain. I do hope they change the name Yaz though. It seems like that should come with warnings about adreneal or heart disease, blood clots, and all the other varied warnings every new medicine comes with lol.

I'm really hoping that the script is good, because there is sooo much potential with such an awesome cast! I can only imagine the hilarity that will ensue off camera between Jemaine and Will Smith. It makes me giggle just thinking about it! I adore Will. :love: And Jemaine too, of course. ;)

Posting this one because there's a photo of the J-Dog. They've changed the villain name. It's no longer Yaz. It's Boris, and Sacha Baron Cohen was up for it:

Men in Black 3 Names Its VillainPosted 05.19.10 by Jim
Sony has officially announced that Jemaine Clement will be joining Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones for the third installment of Men in Black. He will be playing the alien antagonist Yaz. There is no word yet as to his villainous intent, except that he'll be placing the planet in peril once again. This announcement wraps up the main cast nicely and is great news for the franchise, which is in dire need of a resurrection after a less than stellar MIB 2.
Earlier in the year there was news that Josh Brolin might be replacing Jones as Agent "K". That news had fans of the franchise uneasy until confirmation came that both Smith and Jones would be coming back. Now that we know the rest of the storyline, the Brolin report makes sense.
The third MIB movie involves Agent "J" (Smith) traveling back in time to 1969 to meet a younger Agent "K," who will be played by Brolin. While that is all we know of the plot, it's easy to speculate that the story will revolve around the historic moon landing.
