Dear me! :shock:
I agree, Laura - as bad as the skin and the eyes are, there's something REALLY creepy about those teeth, and they're not even the really gross teeth. I'm gonna need to hold someone's hand to watch this! :nails:

That shot certainly inspired the action figure.

(the action figure must have seen Dr. Rey about his neck)


I can really get used to seeing Bret and Jemaine when flipping through the pages of my Entertainment Weekly. 8)

It's a great issue. Kimbra gets a lovely write-up.

Somehow I'd forgotten that Rick Baker was involved. The Best! I think it's great for Jemaine to be working with such high caliber people: an Oscar winner (Tommy Lee Jones), two Oscar nominees (Will Smith and Josh Brolin), and Rick Baker. So cool.
And he should feel right at home, since he's such a wonderful talent! :nod:

Did anybody else catch Josh Brolin on SNL last night? He played some funny characters. :thumb:

An interview with Jemaine :D :lol:

Quote:
Jemaine Clement on the Flight Of The Conchords Tour and Pashing Nicole Scherzinger

Jemaine Clement is one half of New Zealand's "fourth most popular folk-parody duo," the inimitable, hilarious and hirsute Flight Of The Conchords, who - as you might have heard - are about to embark on their first ever headlining tour of Australia (and New Zealund). The multi-instrumental live comedy show will run the sartorial gamut from animal sweaters to robot costumes and will encompass the creme de la sheep's milk of kitsch instrumentals, from the sweet tunes of the ukelele to the classical toy piano and key tar; and of course, the 1983 Casio DG-20 guitar set to electric mandolin. The very instrument which spawned this guy:

The tour will be the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere tour for the musical-comedy duo, who've recently reunited in Wellington after a string of side projects separated them following the wrap-up on their popular (eponymous) HBO series at the end of its second season in 2009. Clement's partner in crime,Bret McKenzie, has just finished shooting on Peter Jackson's adaptation of The Hobbit (which wrapped last week), and won Academy (of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, aka Oscar) recognition for his role as musical supervisor on The Muppets Movie taking out Best Original Song for 'Man or Muppet', while Jemaine has been donning prosthetics and polishing up his screen-pash skills for his role as the villainous 70s era amputee alien, Boris, in the third incarnation of Will Smith's Men In Black franchise.

'We haven't toured in Australia in years. We just did a couple of shows in the States (from Las Vegas to The Hollywood Bowl) before we toured in Europe (where they played Wembley Arena). We're in the studio [in Wellington] right now writing and rehearsing new material. We actually had to stop to do this interview. Brett just left the room to do another interview - I'm doing three and he's doing four.'

We're working on some new material but if we're torturing the audience we won't include it in the show and we'll just draw material from our back catalogue. We'll be testing out any new songs on audiences in New Zealand before we tour Australia so you guys will be spared the new songs if they're no good.'

Being on tour means the two will be back in the same time zone, and on the same page creatively speaking. 'It's been difficult [to write new material]. We don't want to tour America again until we have new songs [so] we're just focussing on the tour for now and we'll see what happens after that.' When asked about the prospect of a Conchords movie, or even a live concert film a la Justin Bieber, Clement said there were no plans in the works for a movie right now [or even a tour mockumentary]. 'We've talked about that, but to make a movie out of the tour would take all the fun out of touring.'

'I started out in animation and I'm working on an animation series for NZTV. When we first began performing in New Zealand we weren't able to get a TV show here so we had to go to Melbourne and then onto Edinburgh. I've done about four minutes [of animation] so I think I'll have to pad it out a bit more. I've got a few short films which are also too embarrassing to show, and I'm also working on a vampire comedy with Taika Waititi [who directed last year's feel-good comedy 'Boy'].

Animation's something Clement's always been interested in, with a recent spate of roles in Despicable Me, Rio, the animated series of Napoleon Dynamite and The Simpons confirming that. He's played a villain in each (with the exception of ND), and when asked about any concerns over his typecasting, Clement maintained that he wasn't worried. ' At first I was typecast as a nerd. But you can move on from being typecast in one role. Then again, I just did an audition for a role as a nerd the other day so I guess I haven't really moved on from that.' His next role then as the grossly deformed alien nemesis opposite Will Smith (and with a sidekick in Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls) is something of a departure from the Jemaine of Conchords fame.

Will's great on set. When things aren't going very well, he'll tell stories from his bad movies - and his good ones - to lift everyone's spirits. He's exactly how is appears in all those 'making of' behind the scenes clips on DVDs. Nicole's a very experienced performer. We actually have a really big pash scene. The first screen kiss I had was for a TV commercial in New Zealand and I was really nervous. Everyone tells you beforehand not to use any tongue [and] so you go in with tongue and then once you're in you take your tongue out and then when you pull back you stick out your tongue again. It's very technical.'

'I would say I'm one of five people in the world to pash Nicole Scherzinger. That's a conservative estimate.'

Also at a conservative estimate, we have one double pass for each city to give away. To enter, write your name and preferred city below (not on Facebook) in the comments section, along with your Flight Of The Conchords-style animal rapper name, i.e. Hiphopotamus or Rhymenocerous. No points for Snoop Dogg either.

lol at Jemaine's "conservative estimate" too ;)

Some more info about Jemaine's character from the director:

Quote:
Jemaine Clement 'Is Not Being Funny' In 'Men In Black 3,' Director Says
Posted 4/19/12 1:06 pm EST by Josh Wigler in interviews

The summer season is almost upon us, which means we'll be hit with wave after wave of blockbusters over the coming weeks and months. "Avengers" is, unsurprisingly, a top priority for geeks everywhere at the moment, but don't forget about the return of a not-so-little franchise: Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones' "Men in Black."

The third installment of the series is out in theaters on May 25, and well ahead of that, we have an interview with director Barry Sonnenfeld as part of our Summer Movie Preview coverage. He talks about the film's story, the casting of Josh Brolin as young Agent K, the reported problems plaguing production, and much more.

My favorite bit is this piece on Jemaine Clement's villain, Boris, and what we can expect from the Flight of the Conchords funnyman's performance. Hint: it ain't so funny.

Sonnenfeld said:

Jemaine delivers a totally villainous performance. If there's any comedy at all, it's just through frustration. [Laughs] The great thing about Earth is that it can be a frustrating place for aliens. We don't think clearly, we're not logical all the time. But Jemaine is not on board this movie for comic relief. His performance is really strong and really villainous. Think about it: If you had not seen the first "Men in Black," and people had told you that Tommy lee Jones was funny, you wouldn't have believed it. This is the same thing — no one is trying to be funny. I want my actors to be real. If it's a funny situation, I want it to be funny. But I don't want anyone to play to the comedy. Let the audience find the comedy; I don't want to tell any [of the cast or crew] where it is. So, Jemaine does not deliver a comedic performance. While there are moments of humor that the audience will find funny, Jemaine himself is not being funny, if you get that.

Check out more of the "Men in Black 3" interview over here!

:roll2: Nicole is gonna kick his ass. "Nicole's a very experienced performer." Yes. I'll bet. :lol: I forgot that he had met her before the MIB kissing gig...remember this pic?

My, my...doesn't Jemaine looks lovely with a blonde? :P Had the Conchords just taken in a Pussycat Dolls performance? A quick site search and I have my answer. If you have a minute...read that. Very funny. Note the last line where Bret says, "I can't imagine people whose tours last longer than three days." :)

Have we seen this commercial?

Short films? He seems to be talking about stuff he is currently working on, so he's probably not referring to Fizz and What We Do in the Shadows. How interesting.

Jemaine wrote:

I hope we hear of his next screen role soon. 8)

I really love it when he talks about how much he enjoys touring...most of all when he talks of touring America with new songs! I can't wait! 8)

Oh boy. Is Sonnenfeld really asserting that the humor was subtle and organic in the previous MIB films? :lol: I have no doubt that Jemaine will deliver a comedic performance (I'm banking on it) and that he'll look damn sexy doing it (in spite of all attempts to conceal his hotness). :D
