It does sound like "heal macaw". True, could be!

Didn't Jemaine mention that he played an instrument on the track? Maybe bass? I don't hear the omnichord. :lol: The track is tight. I love it.


:nod: Yes, it's such a brilliant song!

Um...that beard is really freaky in action there. :worry: But he is so magnetic, charming and unaffected. Lovely. Oh my, so his alien is hideous?!?!? :nails:

OK you guys... beard or not, Jemaine looks HOT. :drool: I am loving these pictures. It's killing me that I can't hear Jemaine sounding adorable in the interview Venus posted! I'm at work. Stupid, boring, non-hot and adorable work. :? Speaking of which...

nonchalant obsession wrote:Mock....back away from the boss. :tsk: :lol:

Ha! No worries. ;) I think the main similarity is the beard, which IMO is Jemaine's least attractive feature, lol. It's a testament to Jemaine's hotness that he is able to overcome the hillbilly facial hair.

Jemaine Clement was photographed with fellow hottie Rodrigo Santoro

"Fellow hottie", lol.

There's also transcript underneath the video (I didn't notice this when I first saw it)

Transcript: Jemaine Clement Interview - Rio and Men in Black III

Rebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the LA Premiere of 20th Century Fox's Rio.
Jemaine Clement - 'Nigel' in Rio

First of all, I'm a huge Flight of the Conchords fan...

Jemaine Clement: "Oh, thanks."

And I'm very upset that it's not coming back ever.

Jemaine Clement: "Sorry."

Why did you do that to me?

Jemaine Clement: "We did it just to get you. 'I know what's going to annoy Rebecca.'"

But the song in this is very Flight of the Conchords-ish. Did you do that on purpose?

Jemaine Clement: "Flight of the Conchords-esque. No, I guess that's just how I write maybe."

Did they let you just go for it?

Jemaine Clement: "Yeah. And they had some other people help, there's a version in the script and also they had a writer, Yoni Brenner, who was in the studio with me. So when I was recording it, he would suggest other lines and I'd use the lines that I liked of his."

How difficult was it to play an evil bird?

Jemaine Clement: "Not difficult."

You channeled your inner evilness.

Jemaine Clement: "Yeah. I'm 90% evil in real life. It's harder to be good most of the time when I'm only 10% good."

Did you have any input on the character's look?

Jemaine Clement: "No, none. They had already come up with it when I first met them. They said, 'This is what the bird looks like and we're trying to find a voice for him.'"

How difficult was it to find his voice?

Jemaine Clement: "Oh well, they just wanted me to use my normal voice, really. I tried some other things because it's a native of Australia, that particular kind of cockatoo I think. And so I tried an Australian accent but they didn't want it."

I heard that Carlos actually acted out the other birds opposite you. What's he like?

Jemaine Clement: "Yeah. Sometimes he's acting like a female parrot, and sometimes he's acting like a little bulldog. He really gets into it. He throws himself into the part."

Is it hard to take him seriously as a director when he's being a bulldog?

Jemaine Clement: "It's hard to take him seriously as a woman."

Are you a fan of 3D?

Jemaine Clement: "At times. This has some really great 3D parts. Because it's about birds there's lots of flying, and I think that's a good use for 3D."

Do you think your character is going to get his own spin-off?

Jemaine Clement: "No. Maybe. If you talk to Carlos, just suggest it."

And you're working on Men in Black III?

Jemaine Clement: "Yes."

How's that going?

Jemaine Clement: "Great."

Is it still in production because I heard they were shut down for a while?

Jemaine Clement: "We had a long break over the Christmas period, what you guys call the holidays. So we had some long holidays, but we're back at it now."

How does it compare to the first two?

Jemaine Clement: "It has a lot of twists from the first two. But, yeah, it's funny. A lot of action."

And you're not an alien, are you?


Jemaine Clement: "I am an alien."

Are in an alien character mask?

Jemaine Clement: "Right now?"

No, on the set. Yeah, right now.

Jemaine Clement: "Not right now."

Do you have a cool alien costume?

Jemaine Clement: "Yeah, I have prosthetics. I look hideous. Not now."

Why should people go see Rio as opposed to every other family film out there?

Jemaine Clement: "It's the only film on at the moment. There are no other films."

Oh my! The beard looks longer in action, lol! And yep- I agree with mock...he looks HOT!
I hope he's not some uber-hairy-Uncle-Fester-like alien with hairy tentacles coming off his chest or something! What with the chest-hair shaving talk and now the hideous comment.....ugh! ;)

This pic is fabulous- he OWNS it. For me, there's no one else in this shot:

Hey! so I finally got all (but one) of the pictures! my friend is a photographer/uses photoshop so I think she's doing something to that last pic b4 she sends it to me(mostly because I get sketchy reactions when I ask anyone about it :worry: :lol: ) and for some reason the pictures wanted to be weird sizes when I tried posting them... so here's the link http://s1140.photobucket.com/albums/n574/Yapics7476/
there are pics of him signing stuff and then pics of me out in front of Chevalier's Books (and yeah.. um... I am wearing a Maori necklace :whistle: )

MMS! Those are great shots! :D How funny about Chevalier's shop. I wonder if Jemaine noticed it? And you look so beautiful, girl! LOVE the necklace. How did you end up with a Maori bauble?
