Jemaine Clement is to set to be "creepy but charming" when he appears alongside Josh Brolin in Men In Black III, he has revealed.
The Flight Of The Conchords star is playing villainous alien Yaz, who has the task of killing the young Agent K, played by Josh, in the upcoming third 3D instalment of the sci-fi comedy.
"I'm creepy but charming. I am an alien with prosthetics and I look hideous. But it's funny, there is a lot of action," he told the New Zealand Herald.
Jemaine has been spotted with shaggy hair and a full beard while filming scenes in New York, adopting an Easy Rider-type image, complete with fringed suede jacket, leather trousers and bandanna.
The New Zealand actor-musician, who turns 38 on January 10, has no qualms about playing the bad guy.
"I'm 90 per cent evil in real life. It's hard to be nice most of the time when I'm only 10 per cent good," he joked.
Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reprise their roles as Agents J and K respectively, while Emma Thompson, Alice Eve and Johnny Knoxville also appear in Men in Black III, which is scheduled for a May release.
