Would Jones & Brolin Time Travel to the '60s?
May 03, 2012
Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin play an older and younger version of Agent K in Men in Black 3, in theaters May 25, and Josh said that playing Tommy in the sci-fi comedy was "a little disconcerting at first."
Josh says that he never actually did his Tommy Lee Jones impression in front of Tommy, and they still haven't even seen the movie together. "Maybe we should create a screening where it's just Tommy and I, and you guys can film it," he jokes. "That would be nerve wracking."
"I think Josh did a good job," says Tommy, choosing not to elaborate. "I thought he played his part in the movie very well."
The long-awaited third installment of the Men in Black franchise finds Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Jones) feeling a little too old to battle unwieldy aliens day in and day out. But when history is somehow rewritten and K ceases to exist, J must travel back in time to put things right, literally diving right into 1969 to team up with a younger version of K (Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
If Tommy could time travel back to the '60s, would he? "Oh hell no," says Tommy with a laugh. "I don't think there are any good ol' days anywhere. This is the good ol' day. I think we're better now."
"You had really bad TV shows like Mr. Ed and Lost in Space," laughs Josh about the hippie decade. "The '60s was a wild time, man. It all just kind of broke open then."
So, would Tommy do another Men in Black? "Yeah," he replies, matter of fact. "We're gonna start tomorrow, I hope."
