Zach Galifianakis hangs with felt creatures in the new Muppet movie

Oct. 26, 2010by: Dave Davis

Paunchy funnyguy Zach Galifianakis is currently stirring up more drunken trouble in THE HANGOVER 2 and is also out promoting DUE DATE with co-star Robert Downey Jr... who inadvertently let slip some of Zach's other upcoming plans (which EW confirmed).

Galifianakis will reportedly be joining other fuzzy humanoids in THE GREATEST MUPPET MOVIE EVER MADE. Disney's movie continues FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL actor Jason Segel's curious affinity for puppetry, and will also feature appearances from Rashida Jones, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, and what will likely be a few dozen other cameos.

The story, directed by "Flight of the Conchords" James Bobin (who got input from Pixar's finest), finds the expansive cast of Muppets putting on a final big show to save a studio (not MGM).

For the hell of it, here's some classic "Muppet Show" with a few other familiar faces:

Extra Tidbit: Galifianakis previously had a close encounter with drum-pounding Muppet madman Animal during a staring contest.

Ehh. No Henson = No Muppets. And I'm getting a bit bored w/ Zach. But he should keep working w/ Tim & Eric of course.

Well at least they found a movie deserving of Zach's intelligence.

creepy Gibson fans

This Mel Gibson fan club is getting really creepy. It almost seems like these people are either on Gibson's payroll, his personal friends, or christian fundies who really liked his jesus movie. What else would explain their fanatical defense of this A-hole?

With Zach G and Jason Segel's talent this Muppet movie is going to kick ass. I hope Russell Brand makes a cameo.

A man beats his wife and he is forgiven instantaneously. Another man refuses to work with said man and everyone holds a grudge against him. This is the world we live in.

Brer B8a, couldn't agree more. People who hate Zach and love Gibson need to get their heads examined.

I was obviously being sarcastic with the Mel Gibson comment, so why don't you calm down a bit. I'm a fan of Galifianakis. I do think Gibson would have been hilarious in Hangover 2, though. He does cameos so well, especially when he's taking the piss out of himself (Father's Day - only good part in the whole film).

Zach and the Muppets are a good combo. I can't wait for this one. I have faith Segel will bring the Muppets back to greatness.

Dr. Teeth will be banned from this movie because of how he treated Janice. Instead the role will be filled by ALF.

Great news!

I heard Mel Gibson is gonna have a cameo in this movie, too. I'm sure he and Galifianakis will be hilarious together.
