Jemaine Clement

Musician, comedian and actor Jemaine Clement is no stranger to offbeat characters. He most recently portrayed the eccentric science fiction author Dr. Ronald Chevalier in Gentlemen Broncos, directed by Jared Hess. His performance in the film netted him an Independent Spirit Nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

The native New Zealander has been involved in a wide array of projects on stage, radio, television and film. He is one-half of the Grammy Award-winning duo, Flight of the Conchords. Billing themselves as the "fourth most popular folk parody duo in New Zealand," the group uses a combination of witty observation, characterization and acoustic folk guitars. Their quirky act was later converted into a BBC radio series, followed by the seven-time Emmy-nominated American television series, The Flight of the Conchords, which premiered on HBO in 2007. Clement has also received three shared WGA nominations for his scripting of the series.

Jemaine also starred in the film Eagle vs Shark, written and directed by Taika Waititi.

Most recently, the actor was heard as part of the voice talent assembled in Universal Picture's 3D computer-animated film Despicable Me, and he will next be seen as the lead in Jason Nutter's period crime comedy, Predicament.
