Though he's more famous for being part of the comedic folk duo Flight of the Conchords along with Jemaine Clement, McKenzie also had a bit role in the Best Picture-winning final entry of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Return of the King .

A final decision has not yet been made, but it's looking like there may not be a third season of the hilarious, Emmy-nominated HBO comedy, Flight of the Conchords .
