'Moana' fans don't believe Jemaine Clement is in the movie

Kiwi actor and comedian, Jemaine Clement, has been best known for his work in folk-comedy duo 'Flight of the Conchords', and for acting in the film 'What We Do in the Shadows'.

But to be recognised in for his work in 'Moana' - that's a bit more difficult.

Jemaine Clement joined Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show and shared how no one points him out for his role as the voice of Tamatoa, "Because I don’t look like a crab, they don’t really know.”

He recalled one instance where he appeared at the American festival ComicCon to promote his upcoming mockumentary, What We Do in the Shadows, and how he stumbled upon two people dressed as Maui (Dwayne Johnson's Moana character) and the island goddess Te Fiti.

“I thought, I’m gonna give these guys a bit of a thrill,” he said. “They were taking a selfie and I just slid in there.”

He went on to say that they gave him a confused look, and he had to explain that he’s the voice of Tamatoa. “And they were like, ‘You mean, you can do an impression?’”

So in the end, these two 'Moana' fans had no idea how famous the photobomber was in their selfie shot...
