|Rhys Darby as Norman in Yes Man (2008)|
I'm wondering why they're not going to offer a part to actor and comedian Rhys Darby. He was hilarious as the inept manager and New Zealand consulate deputy cultural attache Murray Hewitt in the Flight of the Conchords HBO series. Perhaps it's because these films will be fantasy epics, and Darby usually plays nerdy, kooky characters. With his distinctive screen persona, perhaps he'd be out of place in this kind of film, that presumably will want to be taken seriously.
