Leftovers - District 9's Sharlto Copley reprises his role for Funny or Die
Readers of the blog know that I'm a big fan of the online celebrity comedic sketch site Funny or Die. Well looks like they've done it again, this time with Sharlto Copley (of District 9 and the upcoming A-Team fame) reprising his role as Wikus, the bumbling manager of MNU Alien affairs from Neil Blomkamp's sci-fi thriller. Turns out, Wikus is real and District 9 was more documentary than fiction, and Wikus being Wikus, he thinks he's an up and coming movie star. So he sets out to find fellow South African actress Charlize Theron in order to ask her to co-present an award with him at the South African Music Awards. You can imagine how it turns out.
I'm a big fan of District 9 and it's great to see Sharlto Copley playing Wikus again as we wait hopefully for a District 9 sequel. So enjoy the 4 minute sketch Wikus and Charlize courtesy of Funny or Die. Oh and it also turns out it's directed by Sharlto as well. Who knew?
