Men in Black II - Full Cast & Crew - TV Guide
The original Men In Black from was loosely based on a comic by the same name and featured the surprisingly potent comic chemistry of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The movie borrowed Ghostbusters' formula of mixing comedy with some horror and found Smith and Jones as a pair of government agents tasked with taking down alien threats that are hidden from the public. The movie was a huge success, but it took a surprisingly long time for Men In Black II to roll around. The sequel landed in to mixed reviews but it was another hit. Men In Black 3 took even longer to produce and had a famously strange production, which includes filming beginning when only a third of the script had been written. Nevertheless, the threequel was the most successful to date.
