Moviemakers have released the first photos of Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement playing a villainous alien biker in upcoming movie blockbuster Men in Black III.
The Kiwi funnyman said he was delighted with his "creepy but charming" new look for the $277 million flick, alongside Hollywood acting legends Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
A shaggy-haired Clement adopted an Easy Rider-style image including a fringed suede jacket and leather pants while filming scenes in New York.
"I am an alien with prosthetics and I look hideous. But it's funny, there is a lot of action," Clement told video.about.com
Clement pipped English comedy superstar Sacha Baron Cohen to land the role of Boris.
The Kiwi said he had no problem playing a bad guy. "I'm 90 per cent evil in real life," Clement joked. "It's hard to be nice most of the time when I'm only 10 per cent good."By Russell Blackstock Email Russell
