:shock: That wouldn't be good. You'll need your ovaries for the next time he's in your area. *lol*

Saffy, you are right my dear friend. No accent will matter by the time the opening credits roll. :popcorn: I am so happy for him (and for me too). Another movie to anticipate!

I think many kiwi actors might find that offensive. Luckily i'm not a kiwi actor.

I hope that he keeps his accent. It makes me feel special when i hear new zealanders, especially ones with such similar accents to my own talking in films, or on TV. WE don't get it often.

Is it weird that this made me secretly happy? :oops: :lol:

I hope he keeps his accent, too. It's incredibly sexy.

I was worried about how that was coming across when I was typing it, because I didn't want it to sound that way. I think I was referring more to the fact that he's going to be in a film that wasn't made by a friend or by himself. He was heavily involved in the making on Tongan Ninja and he's worked with Taika professionally before, so it wasn't a huge stretch before to be involved in those films (not that he didn't deserve to be in those films).

What I was trying to say -- and still having a hard time with saying -- is that this time he's not an obvious choice because he's been friends for years with the director who already knows his work well and knows he's talented, as was the case with Taika. This is some relative stranger choosing him after seeing his work, which is how most (?) actors get hired. Not that one is more valid than the other. I think that a smaller film with actors/directors/etc. who know each other well has an ability to get a really strong performance from everyone, because they're comfortable with each other already.

That's why I'm so excited for him too. Thanks for saying what I was thinking. :)

I don't believe anyone has posted this, but I'm sure Sherry will let me know!! :wink:

In IMDB, they show this production as "filming". Maybe this explains his longer hair these days. So much better than the last movie!! :bounce:

There isn't much info on the IMBD page so if anyone has the lowdown on this, please share. If anyone runs into Jemaine(hint hint),please ask when we will be able to admire his work. :wink:

From what Bret said in that phone interview that poptartgirl posted, Jemaine was filming it in March in Utah, I think. In one day he had to fly to Canada to get the proper visa, then come back into the US and film!
I'm not sure if he's finished, but he's pretty busy at least until Oct with HBO, so for his sake I hope he's done. :zzz:

He could be keeping the hair longer in case there's a need to go back and refilm anything. I know he said he had to keep the EvS mullet past the original filming date, just in case he had to go back and redo anything.

Thanks for the update guys. IMDB isn't always current with things like that. :wave:

I'm still curious on when it's scheduled to come out. I don't recal seeing a studio with this. If they don't have a deal now, there's not telling on when it will be out!

I found this on conchords.net.

There are some pics of him dressed as the novelist. It seems he finished filming.

Thanks so much for posting the link. Those are great pics - Jemaine really looks like a writer/professor.

And the article was interesting. Becca picked up on his shyness, and it was nice to hear he was accomodating to the extras.
I wonder what accent he's using. She said it was funny to hear him not using his regular NZ accent. With his role named Chevalier, could it be French? Hmmm.:hrm:

aw it is always nice to read about what a sweetie he is, yep i wonder what accent he is speaking in? (but yep i'd think french too from his name) and i was wondering what his look would be for the part so thanks for posting the pics! i didn't even know what his part would be until i just read somewhere he's the guy who steals the other writer's idea--i can't wait to see him in this! :)
