I am – Hercules!!
Some inspired casting!
Jemaine Clement (“Gentlemen Broncos,” “Dinner For Schmucks”), the hilariously low-key star of HBO’s “Flight of The Conchords,” has been cast as Yaz, a (presumably alien) villain in “Men In Black III.”
Aliens in the series have been played in earlier movies by Vincent D’Onofrio, Tony Shalhoub, Lara Flynn Boyle and Johnny Knoxville.
Josh Brolin (“Jonah Hex”) is the other newcomer to the franchise, which again reunites director Barry Sonnenfeld with Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith.
Etan Cohen ("Beavis & Butt-head," "King of the Hill," "Idiocracy," "Tropic Thunder") penned the screenplay this time around.
Brolin plays a younger version of Jones’ Agent K, so everybody’s guessing J will be going back in time.
