He’s Lippy

Wellington actor Jemaine Clement is included in Bust magazine’s ‘Fall Preview’ film section showing off “his sugar lumps on the big screen” in Gentlemen Broncos. In the film, directed by the folks behind Napolean Dynamite, “our favourite cleft-chinned comedian plays self-serious sci-fi author Ronald Chevalier, a fellow who steals an idea from a boy who has spent his life being home-schooled.” Gentlemen Broncos is released in October. In Flight of the Conchords news, a Washington Post article titled “Tips for Dressing like Bret & Jemaine”, explains how you can ape your favourite of the two. In Clement’s case it’s about plenty of denim, leather jackets and short shorts. Unlike Jemaine and his well-maintained sideburns, Bret McKenzie’s style really only requires a man not to shave or comb his hair for a few days.
