Is Borat about to make sexy time with the Men in Black? Industry insiders report that Columbia Pictures is finally having casting conversations about its third entry in the MiB franchise, and some of the names that have popped up are, well, unusual, according to Bloody Disgusting.

Rumored to join Josh Brolin (whose own starring role is still unconfirmed), the studio has supposedly shown strong interest in both Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords). Both Cohen and Clement are being considered for a character named "Yaz."

Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder) wrote the screenplay.

At this point, the casting is only a rumor, but—what do you think about Cohen trading in his lime-green thong for a black suit and shades?
