Jemaine Clement is probably best known for his comedy roles like in Flight of the Conchords and What We Do in the Shadows, but it looks like he\u2019s going to be entering the realm of sci-fi next. The official Avatar account on Twitter has just announced that Clement has been cast in the sequel films.\r\n\r\nCheck out the official announcement:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/officialavatar\/status\/1128691582633480194?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128691582633480194&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fepicstream.com%2Fnews%2FBayaniMiguelAcebedo%2FLegions-Jemaine-Clement-Joins-Cast-of-Avatar-Sequels\r\n\r\nWhile Clement is best known for comedy, this won\u2019t really be the first time he\u2019s in a sci-fi flick. He plays the role of Oliver Bird in the Legion series. If you would also like to count it, he voices the role of Fart in the Rick and Morty episode Mortynight Run. \r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=TgqiSBxvdws\r\n\r\nAlso, just in case it went over your head, the official announcement saying \u201cIt\u2019s business time,\u201d is a reference to one of Clements\u2019 songs in Flight of the Conchords:\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=WGOohBytKTU\r\n\r\nWe don\u2019t really know how large of a role Clement\u2019s marine biologist is going to play in the film, but I imagine it\u2019s going to be a fairly important role. Clement has been known to play bigger roles in past films (like the main antagonist of Men in Black 3), so I would imagine they would want to make him do something more relevant in Avatar rather than just some glorified cameo.\r\n\r\nThe first Avatar sequel is set to come out Dec. 17, 2021.
