According to Chortle stand-up comedian Rhys Darby from New Zealand has joined the upcoming Jim Carrey movie "Yes Man". He is best known for playing the Flight of the Conchords' manager Brian, in BBC Radio 2 series in the UK. Rhys Darby's character is to play Norman, the boss of Jim’s character Karl in the loan company where he works.
Norman is a real nerdy loser boss – similar to my character in Concords but even more nerdy and even less cool.
‘Karl’s stuck in a boring job, he’s divorced from his job and all his mates are sick of him because he never goes out. That’s until he gets involved in the Yes Project to say “yes” to everything.
‘Karl ignores his boss, thinks he’s an idiot, until he gets involved in this movement. Then he has to accept an invite to his boss’s party where you have to wear a funny hat or funny wig – that’s how nerdy Norman is.
- Rhys Darby
Filming is expected to begin in October.
