James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ Sequels Add Jemaine Clement to Cast

Jemaine Clement is joining the cast of James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ sequels as Dr. Garvin, a marine biologist on Pandora.

The official ‘Avatar’ Twitter account made the announcement:

Clement gained popularity with the HBO series ‘Flight of the Concords,’ as well as the 2014 film ‘What We Do in the Shadows.’ He co-wrote and co-directed the latter with Taika Waititi. The two also made a television adaptation of the vampire film, which is currently airing on FX. Other prominent roles include Sony’s ‘Men in Black 3,’ Disney’s ‘Moana,’ and FX’s ‘Legion.’

Moreover, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang, and Sigourney Weaver are returning for the upcoming films. Newcomers Kate Winslet, Oona Chaplin, Brendan Cowell, Edie Falco, and Michelle Yeoh have also come aboard. The screenplay of ‘Avatar 2’ is by Cameron, Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Shane Salerno. Cameron will direct all four films.
