Jemaine Clement is the latest addition to James Cameron's Avatar sequels.

The Flight Of The Conchords star who also co-created the vampire houseshare comedy What We Do in the Shadows, will play marine biologist Dr. Ian Garvin.

The announcement was made on the official Avatar Facebook page this morning, with the note: "Glad to have you aboard Jemaine!"

What's interesting here is they've said he's signed on to the "sequels", as opposed to just Avatar 2: Pandora Boogaloo*, which means Clement could be in for the long haul. Disney announced last week that the remaining installments will be released on the same weekend every two years, alternating with "Star Wars" movies with "Avatar 3" arriving in 2023; "Avatar 4" in 2025; and finally "Avatar 5" in 2027.

The role is a major move for Clement, off the back of the huge success he's had in recent projects like the What We Do In the Shadows series and his beloved role in Disney's Moana. Cameron had initially planned for two sequels but later decided there was enough material for four sequels. Returning cast members include Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Stephen Lang, Matt Gerald and Sigourney Weaver.

Mostly known for comedy, Clement is now serving as executive producer on the FX series What We Do in the Shadows, based on the 2014 film he made with Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi.
