Rhys Darby is the one from Flight of the Conchords who isn’t in the band. He plays the manager, Murray, and is probably funnier than the band.
If you get the chance watch some of this stand-up. Dave T got me onto it and it is hilarious. Lots of sound effects and not what you expect at all. Check out the jetpack and ejector seat bit and he makes an amazing robot.
Deadline have the news that he is going to be starring in Love Birds. This New Zealand/UK co-production will film in Auckland until mid-May. He plays somebody nursing a wild bird back to health after his girlfriend dumps him. Then he meets a kooky vet, played by Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins (Happy Go Lucky). New Zealand director Paul Murphy is working with screenwriter Nick Ward.
Check out Rhys’ official site and here he is meeting Dr Dre.
