Josh Brolin is Potentially Joining the Ranks of Men in Black 3
Just over a month ago we finally heard some official word on the long rumored Men in Black 3 as Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen was set to write the three-quel in Columbia's franchise. Now things are getting a little more interesting as Hero Complex reports that Josh Brolin is being considered to join the ranks of MiB, with a few possibilities for his role. Brolin will be playing either "a new single-monikered government agent, with Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K passing the baton to Brolin's character. Or he could play Agent K as a young man. Or something else entirely." The other good news is that Will Smith is expected to return.
Obviously it's no big deal if Agent K officially retires (again) and passes the reins on to Brolin. However, if Brolin ends up playing Agent K as a young man, and Will Smith is involved, that means that there's going to be some serious time traveling involved for J, and I can already see the unveiling of a previously unknown gadget in MiB headquarters, confiscated from an illegal alien that makes time travel possible (or maybe Dr. Emmett L. Brown is an alien?). Cue Will Smith's "Aw, damn!" Anyway, with Etan Cohen writing, I'm ready for a third installment of Men in Black if only to forget the atrocities committed by Johnny Knoxville and the rest of the rancid parts of Men in Black 2. You guys ready for Brolin to join the ranks of MiB?
