I thought we could also use a thread for random Jemaine'ness when I saw this...

RUMOUR ALERT!

'Men in Black 3' Casting to Begin Soon, Names Being Thrown in the Ship
Monday, March 8, 2010

By: MrDisgusting

Columbia Pictures is officially having conversations regarding their third entry in the Men in Black franchise as we're being told by industry insiders that in addition to Jonah Hex cowboy Josh Brolin likely (still unconfirmed) to star, they've shown strong interest in both Sacha Baron Cohen (Sweeney Todd, Bruno) and Jemaine Clement ("The Flight of the Conchords") for a character named "Yaz" (a new agent?). Neither are locked, this should be taken strictly as rumor for now. Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder, Igor, Idiocracy) wrote the screenplay. Shooting was originally rumored to begin this spring. The 1997 Men in Black grossed nearly $600m worldwide, while its 2002 sequel took in $440m. Why so long for another sequel? Who knows!

Just say no, Jemaine! :-X

Also... "Yaz"? That's the name of the birth control I used to take. [image]

from a snippet that links to the above (from what Ami posted):

Russell Brand and Jemaine Clement ("The Flight of the Conchords") are said to be fighting for the role of 'Yaz' in "Men in Black III".

I'm not feeling this either. Why did they take so long for a sequel Threequel? Because Hollywood loves the moneys and they are coming short on original ideas.

Just the concept alone seems like a hunk of fail. :-/ (But will probably do well...)

Its not helping that I hate Russell Brand. Throw the project at him please and just ~never look back~.



BUT... I would totally pay the ticket price to see Jemaine in a suit for two hours. Lord knows I'll see whatever he's in. :P

I'm going to pretend you never said that.











Just jokes! To each her own, betch. [image] [image]





Actually, I do agree with you. Russell should definitely take the role, because although I love him, I don't care if he stars in questionable movies. [image]

I'm ready to cheer him on whatever project he's into but I'd love to see him rather realizing projects that he's got with Taika. I wouldn't want him to be sidetracked and sucked by "Hollywood monster". You know, stay true to yourself... [image]


But ... yeah... if you feel like doing this, Jemaine, then I'm sure you'll give this shii your unique flavour [image] .

Oh I could do this alllll day. ;D [image]

Yea. I usually don't care if someone I like/love star in questionable movies, because it happens too often. :P I might be all, "Aw, really?!" That's the business for a lot of them.

I just want to see Jemaine do what he wants to do. I might be against it now, but lets face it: I'll go see it when the time comes. [image]



Ok, I need to remind myself that this is a rumor. :P

*dry humps stephen colbert's leg*

we'll just have to see what comes of this rumo(u)r. in hollywood, they're about as common as silicone implants + botox injections, so i'm not holding my breath.

i would also go see anything that jemaine became involved in because i know, no matter how crappy the script (and he's unlikely to involve himself in a project unless there's SOME kind of worthwhile writing involved) he'll still wow the audience. i have confidence in his performances, just not the typically vapid hollywood industry.



i'm totally excited to share jemaine randomness in this thread, by the way...


i'm just waiting for the random goodness to happen! :D
