Has “Men In Black” found its next villain? Has “Men In Black” found its third villain?

It’s possible that when Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones reunite for the next installment of the science-fiction comedy series, they will be facing off against Jemaine Clement of HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords.”

EW’s PopWatch is saying Clement might go where next Vincent D’Onofrio and Lara Flynn Boyle previously trekked, playing an extraterrestrial foe that poses some sort of threat to Smith and Jones. Though few details about the villainous character were available, EW reports that the role needs someone who can be “charmy and creepy.”

As of right now, Josh Brolin has been cast as a younger version of Jones’ character, because the bulk of the movie reportedly takes place in 1969. (So who will be cast as a young Will Smith? Maybe his son, Jaden?)

“Men In Black III” will be filmed in 3-D by director Barry Sonnenfeld, and is targeting a May 25, 2012 release date.
