A 'Flight Of The Conchords' Star Is Tackling Drama

You know him as Hiphopopotamus, the crooner of "Business Time," and one half of the hilarious Flight of the Conchords. You may also know him from What We Do in the Shadows, the laugh out loud movie about vampires struggling to adapt to modern life. But now, Jemaine Clement is taking a turn for the slightly more serious in the family drama People Places Things.

Premiering at Sundance Film Festival 2015, the film follows Will Henry (Clement), a graphic novelist and professor in NYC who has two five-year-old twin daughters with his longtime girlfriend. But when he catches his girlfriend cheating on him at their daughters' birthday party, he must learn to rebuild his life after the breakup. Forced to navigate New York City as a single dad, professor, and artist, the film is both serious and silly, with supporting roles from Jessica Williams and Regina Hall.

In this clip, we see Clement's character picking up his daughters from school. When he tells them the three of them are headed out of town for the weekend, the precocious girls ask their father if he's in trouble. Watch the exclusive clip from the film below. People Places Things hits theaters August 14.
