Tommy Lee Jones set for Men in Black 3

September 16th, 2010

Tommy Lee Jones will appear in 'Men in Black 3'.

Despite rumours he would not be making a reappearance as Agent K in the third instalment of the alien comedy movie, Josh Brolin - who is confirmed to be playing a younger version of Jones in the movie - reveals he would not "replace" the actor.

He said: "I don't know what the balance is yet. I'm not replacing Tommy, that I know. There's more suggestion going on than anything."

Brolin has previously worked with Jones on 'No Country for Old Men', but claims he is still nervous about portraying him as a younger man.

He said: "It's very, very interesting. As you can tell I get nervous talking about it because I'm not there yet and hopefully it'll be alright. I think it's going to be a lot of fun."

The 'Jonah Hex' star also admits he is excited to work with Will Smith in film because he has "the Midas touch".

He told MTV News: "Will is amazing to work with because he cares about every nook and cranny about what goes on. And he drives some people crazy in the studio doing it. But he knows, man. He's got the Midas touch. He's got it. And he's a smart guy."

'Men in Black 3' is due to be released in May 2012.
