With the major success of the first two Men in Black films it’s about time for Sony to try and get some more life out of the franchise. Josh Brolin is apparently on board and set to join series star Will Smith; although the presence of Tommy Lee Jones is not yet decided upon. Perhaps this is the reason that we’re now hearing casting rumors for the potential third picture, and why they’re also from actors of a comedic persuasion.

The two names being thrown around are that of Sacha Baron Cohen, best known for the films Borat and Bruno, and Jemaine Clement, one half of New Zealand’s formerly fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo, Flight of the Conchords. The character is said to be named “Yaz” and is possibly a new agent, although not much else is known at this time. The script was penned by Tropic Thunder co-writer Etan Coen (add an “H” into the first name and I would be more excited for this movie).

What do you think of this potential casting? Are you excited for Men in Black III?
