Men in Black 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, which gives movie junkies plenty of time to ponder what kind of antics Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) have in store for the final conclusion of the extraterrestrial trilogy. So to help quench your thirst for alien knowledge Director Barry Sonnenfeld recently revealed in an interview with Collider that Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Tim Burton will all definitely be making special appearances in the film — as aliens in disguise.
It makes you look at Bieber Fever and that whole “Little Monsters” thing a little differently doesn’t it?
As for when and how the stars will make their MIB debut, Sonnenfeld announced that they’ll each appear on the famous alien surveillance board, which has been featured in each of the movies. “In this [film] there are a few people that you’ll see up on the surveillance board including Lady Gaga, Tim Burton, who probably knows more about aliens than I do, and let’s see who else…Justin Bieber,” Sonnenfeld remarked.
He also went on to explain how they go about choosing the stars to showcase. “The challenge is getting celebrities that are famous, will give you permission and won’t be like ‘Who’s that guy?’ in 10 years,” Sonnenfeld said.
Of course this isn’t the first time the franchise has jokingly outed a celeb as an alien who walks among us. In the first film Al Roker, Isaac Mizrahi, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone, Dionne Warwick, Newt Gingrich, Anthony Robbins, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg all made cameos as “known aliens” on the surveillance board who were living incognito during their stay on Earth.
And who could forget Michael Jackson‘s surprise appearance in Men in Black 2 as Agent M — a role that the King of Pop himself fought hard to have. Indeed, the amount of talent in these films is just out of this world…literally.
