Galifianakis in Deep Protest over The Hangover 2

During an interview on the Comedy Death-Ray podcast (run by Between Two Ferns co-writer Scott Auckerman) comedian Zach Galifianakis stated he is currently in “deep protest” over something on set during the filming of The Hangover 2. With the recent release that Mel Gibson is making a cameo appearance in the sequel, the timing of this statement is spawning rumours Galifianakis is not cool with it.

JoBlo quotes:

“A movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.”

Galifianakis refused to get into specifics but told Auckerman, “I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.” Word round the campfire is that Galifianakis is taking specific issue with yesterday’s news that Mel Gibson would be filming a cameo in the film.

I worry when I hear about actors who are involved in a project that they feel forced into. Moreso when they utter phrases like “you just show up and vomit your lines out”.

He sounds like a retail sales employee.

But Mel Gibson’s cameo role might be part of an effort to restore some appreciation for the actor amidst some pretty bad press he has been getting lately.

And what if the assumption is not accurate and there is a bigger issue than a cameo appearance by an unliked actor. Maybe Gibson’s appearance in the film is irrelevent to him and there are bigger issues.

I am sure this will come out eventually, but the very notion that he admittedly isn’t giving it his all for this sequel does not bode well for the production.

  1. wow , this pisses me off if it is ture . Personaly , i agree with zach in that im pissed mel has anything to do with the film

  2. Giving Mel Gibson a cameo is totally copying TC’s role in Tropic Thunder. Except TC was awesome. But Mel used to be awesome. Hmmm.

    1. What’s the Big Deal? They had a (arguably)tainted celeb in the last one:Mike Tyson anyone?

      so Mike’s cool but Mel’s not?

      Gimme a break (theres gotta be more to this)

  3. Am I the only one who thought the first Hangover was an overrated piece of crap? All the jokes were stupid and predictable, and the plot was basically a ripoff of ‘Dude Where’s My Car?’. The only time I laughed through out the entire move was when Zach Galifianakis’ character said that he didn’t know that they gave out rings during the Holocaust.

    1. I would agree that it’s overrated, but I wouldn’t call it a piece of crap. I liked the movie, just not as much as everyone else.

      1. Waaaaaay overhyped but FUN never-the-less, 40 yr old virgin was deserving of the hype, but this one wasn’t.

        pudgy bastard should just be happy he’s still fooling them all and working

  4. maybe it just got threw his head that maybe the sequel might ruin or take away some of the greatness of the first if they dont blow our minds once again, maybe he wanted carlos to return and have a problem where he couldnt stop masterbating at a table and they cut it out of the movie?

    1. Really the first one didn’t blow my mind but I did enjoy it, I am not super excited for a sequel either I think 1 was enough.
