:nod: You ladies definitely need to keep an eye out for him ;)

So according to a recent interview with Jemaine:
He is in New York filming People, Places,Things, which is about a comic-book artist going through a break-up.

Looking at the sideways photo, wouldn't you say his pants are too short? :puzzled:
Or is it a character thing? :hrm:

Yep, those trousers are slightly short :lol:

Jemaine talking a bit about People, Places, Things:

He is also quietly excited to announce he is playing the lead in People, Places and Things, James Strouse’s new film about a graphic novelist.

He shows me drawings of the character he is sketching daily. “The first time I’ve played a nice guy,” he says, smiling. But Jemaine was awesome, I insist. “He’s OK,” says his alter ego. “A bit socially unaware. Sensitive for sure.”

Someone's experience of working on the film:

Booking in the can! Indie feature w/Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords)

Yesterday, I shot my day acting opposite Jemaine Clement in, 'People, Places, Things,' directed by James C. Strouse ('Grace is Gone,' 'The Winning Season'). Man, it was AWESOME! Jemaine was incredibly cool to work with, and we shared a ton of laughs. So thankful to the lovely ladies at Chrystie Street Casting for booking me for this gig.

It was going so well, they even gave me an extra line!

I played an incredibly suspicious usher at a wedding, convinced Jemaine Clemente has crashed it. It was a small, yet important plot point, and Jim, the director, said I totally sold the moment. He was pleased, Jemaine was pleased, and overall it couldn't have gone better.

Can't wait to see it!

They've already wrapped filming. The wrap party in Brooklyn was two nights ago :)

Now media outlets are reporting about Jemaine's role in this film :)

‘Flight Of The Conchords’ Star Jemaine Clement Tackles ‘People Places Things’
by Jen Yamato
October 7, 2014 4:41pm

EXCLUSIVE: Jemaine Clement, best known as one half of the comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, has linked up with Grace Is Gone helmer James C. Strouse for indie feature People Places Things. New Zealander Clement stars as a newly single, under-employed graphic novelist navigating life, his young twin daughters, a case of writer’s block, a classroom full of students, and a new love while letting go of the woman who left him.

Strouse recently wrapped principal photography, directing from his own script. Regina Hall, Stephanie Allynne, and Jessica Williams round out the cast of People Places Things. Michael B. Clark and Alex Turtletaub are producing for Big Beach spin-off shingle Beachside. Beachside’s Tim Foley is exec producer alongside Summer Shelton. Sundance award-winner Strouse, a recipient of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, made his writing debut with 2005’s Lonesome Jim for director Steve Buscemi and also penned Grace Is Gone starring John Cusack and The Winning Season starring Sam Rockwell. Strouse wrote the upcoming The Hollars starring Anna Kendrick and Mary Elizabeth Winstead and directed by John Krasinski.

Clement has parlayed his Conchords mojo into big screen roles in Gentlemen Broncos, Dinner For Schmucks, Men In Black 3, and Rio 2. Before taking on broader comic roles, he also starred for fellow Kiwi Taika Waititi in the 2007 Sundance rom-com Eagle Vs. Shark. He’s repped by CAA. Strouse and Hall are repped by ICM. Williams is repped by UTA and Allynne repped by Gersh.

Definitely makes a change from J's villainous roles. Looking forward to watching it :)

Wow. I can't imagine Jemaine in just a complicated role. I have no doubt he will pull it off, though.

Does anyone know what sort of accent Jemaine will be using in this film?

That has crossed my mind too, Diah. No idea. He hardly puts on an American accent so it would be interesting if he does.

Jemaine speaking in a Jemaine accent is my preference. :)

There are so many People and Places in the world. Most people need to hear their voices and be exposed to their cultures more in the US.
