Bret Peter Tarrant McKenzie is probably best known for being one half of the New Zealand-based musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords (the other half being Jemaine Clement), it’s McKenzie’s musical talent that netted him an Oscar for his work on The Muppets, specifically for the song “Man or Muppet”. McKenzie has also done his fair share of acting, with the Flight of the Conchords TV series, appearances on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and The Simpsons, and roles in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and The Hobbit: There And Back Again. But is he a man? Or is he a Muppet? Bret McKenzie turns 36 today.
