I have never really been the biggest fan of Zach Galifianakis (from now on, he will be referred to Zachie G, because my spellcheck is exploding), but I never disliked him. I loved him in The Hangover and I found him uncomfortably hilarious in last year's The Campaign. He's kind of like a big, drunk teddy bear. I mean that as a compliment.
In the new video Between Two Ferns: Oscar Buzz Edition Part 1, Zachie G. jokes around with some of this year's most high-profile nominees. Jennifer Lawrence continues to prove how effing fun she is, and Amy Adams reveals some real comedy chops. Someone get her a potty-mouthed role in a filthy script! Judd Apatow, I am looking at you!
When this year's host, Seth MacFarlane, was announced as the Oscar host, you could almost hear Maggie Smith turn around in her chair with a raised eyebrow. MacFarlane is hilarious, sure (now to mention a sexy beast), but he isn't really a name in the film industry. Was cuddly Zachie G. too much of a gamble? Too risky? Too drunk? Hey. If this is too drunk, I don't want to be sober.
