Josh Brolin Creeps Us Out As Young Tommy Lee Jones In 'Men In Black 3'

It's good to see that Will Smith can still smile considering "Men In Black 3" has gone through a troubled production period that has seen a rotating number of writers trying to get the script up to par, not to mention a budget that is now soaring north of $200 million. But that's not what we're here to talk about.

The Daily Mail has grabbed some snaps of Josh Brolin on set in New York City playing the younger version of the Tommy Lee Jones' character, Agent K, in the time-traveling sequel and he looks eerily like him. It kind of fucking creeps us out, so good job on the casting there Sony (we're not being snarky, he really does look like a younger Jones). So hey, a little glimmer of good news for the film that could really use some.

Smith and Brolin are joined by Alice Eve, Emma Thompson, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger and Rip Torn in the sequel, that by hook or by crook, will be finished by director Barry Sonnenfeld for a May 25, 2012 release. Check out a few more pics below.

    How did this one note joke get to become a trilogy?

    The first film works in fits & starts (mostly the first 40 minutes) but I wouldn't call it a good movie.

    The second one was just TUR-RIBLE!

    I think when all is said on done, the age difference of Josh Brolin and Tommy Lee Jones will the least of the film's concerns.

    My favorite thing about the Internet: people losing suspension of disbelief and sticking obdurately hard and fast to age. Get over it.

    I'm sure that age factoid has been addressed in one of the dozens of script rewrites.

    Tommy Lee Jones is 64 and even though Josh Brolin is 43, he is playing Agent K when he is supposed to be over 40 years younger.

    They should have cast one of the below rising young actors (and appropriate in terms of age) to play the younger Agent K:
    Shia LaBeouf, Zac Efron, Anton Yelchin, Ed Westwick, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford, Emile Hirsch

    I hope the Men in Black briefly travel to Pandora in this film and visit the Na’vi.

    I can’t wait to hear Will Smith’s single this time! I love singing ‘Men In Black’ and ‘Black Suits Comin’ (Nod Ya Head)’ on karaoke night!

    They won’t let you remember

    Nod ya head {The black suits comin’}
    Let me see you nod ya head like this {The black suits comin’}
    Let me see you (Nod ya head) like this {The black suits comin’}
    Let me see you bop ya head, nod ya head, come on
    (Nod ya head) {The black suits comin’}
    Let me see you (Nod ya head) like this {The black suits comin’}
    Let me see you nod ya head like this {The black suits comin’}
    (Nod ya head…head…head…)
