Clement’s Celestial Chevalier

Wellington Conchord Jemaine Clement takes on the role of fantasy novelist Dr Ronald Chevalier in teen comedy Gentlemen Broncos, a film created by Napolean Dynamite’s Jared Hess to be released in 2009. According to Cinematical “the cast is an ‘indie’ affair, but with the addition of Sam Rockwell and Clement there’s more ‘hipster’ cred.” In the promotional videos and audio snippets on the film’s website Clement portrays Chevalier as a third-rate Orson Scott Card with the voice of Orson Welles. Clement and Bret McKenzie have announced the end of the popular Flight of the Conchords television show after the next season so they might pursue other prospects.
