Is Zach Galifianakis Trying to Steal Ron Swanson's Swag? | Zach Galifianakis

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.

Did Zach Galifianakis Want Mel Gibson's Hangover 2 Cameo Canceled?

Originally posted 10/22/2010 08:35AM

While Jodie Foster may consider Mel Gibson "the most loved man in the film business," apparently not everyone shares her opinion. Zach Galifianakis, who helped steal last year's runaway comedy hit The Hangover, sounds like he's among them.

In a Comedy Death Ray podcast interview that the shaggy haired funnyman gave (and which was posted in two parts, on Oct. 15 and 22), Galifianakis delivers a pointed comment about the making of The Hangover 2, which was to have featured a cameo by Gibson. That appearance was subsequently canceled almost as soon as news about Gibson's casting was announced.

Ostensibly on Comedy Death Ray to promote his new movie with Robert Downey Jr., Due Date, Galifianakis explains to interviewer Scott Aukerman that although he was excited by the success of The Hangover, he's not into a lot of the showbiz scene. Furthermore, he's against too much gunplay in movies, and he's even declined several roles on moral grounds.

Mel Gibson Cameo in The Hangover 2 Canceled

Originally posted 10/21/2010 06:50PM

Mel Gibson's cameo in The Hangover 2 turned into a big headache.

Despite approval from the studio, plans to feature the actor in the sequel to the comedy hit have been scuttled, director Todd Phillips says.

"I thought Mel would have been great in the movie," Phillips said Thursday. "But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew."
