Zach Galifianakis and Nick Offerman: Separated at Birth?

Originally posted 12/15/2011 06:00PM

A penchant for patterned sweaters, a mustache that toes the line between handsome and handlebar, and chest hair thick enough to combat wintry temps: Zach Galifianakis's newest character looks undeniably like another macho man.

Best known for his role as petulant Ron Swanson on NBC's Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman's unique brand of anti-trend manliness seems to have rubbed off on Galifianakis, who debuted a similar look Tuesday on the New Orleans set of his as-yet-untitled comedy.

Treating himself to some Sun Chips, funnyman Galifianakis enjoyed a fruit smoothie while tooling around town in pleated denim slacks – his smartphone at the ready in a handy hip holster.

Emmy Nominations: Which Comedy Series Deserves the Emmy?

Originally posted 09/16/2011 02:30PM

Winning an Emmy is no laughing matter – unless you're on one of this year's nominees for outstanding comedy series. With the same six shows nominated this year as last year, will it be a repeat for Modern Family?

The show, which stars supporting actress nominee Sofia Vergara, follows members of an extended family through their amusing trials and tribulations. It will be up against fan-favorite Glee with its relatable characters and rousing musical performances; The Office, whose absurd boss, played by Steve Carell, has just taken leave; Parks and Recreation with its hilarious antics of an Indiana town's public officials; 30 Rock, NBC's smash hit comedy with outstanding actress nominee Tina Fey at the helm; and Big Bang Theory, which is all about making physics funny.
