Zach Galifianakis talks Hangover 3, inadvertently reveals the plot

Jun. 8, 2011by: Mike Sampson

There have been no shortage of "Zach Galifianakis Is Struggling With Stardom" articles as the actor/comedian has been out promoting THE HANGOVER, PART II. And as I'm sure you've heard, with the sequel being as successful as it was, Warner Bros. is itching to move ahead with the third and final film in the HANGOVER trilogy. The ever-reluctant Galifianakis sighs in a recent interview with Rolling Stone and says, "They want to do a Hangover III...I'm getting fricking phone calls already." I feel ya...

My main problem with THE HANGOVER, PART II was its insistence to follow the original film almost beat-for-beat. It wasn't not funny but it was almost like a director tried to make a reboot of the original but skew it as a thriller set in Thailand. Galifianakis however confirms that the upcoming film will ditch the hijinks-before-a-wedding formula for something slightly more different.

The actor tells Rolling Stone that the third film will start with his character Alan in a mental hospital following the events of the second movie. It's up to Phil, Stu and Doug to break him out, for reasons that aren't entirely clear.

Galifianakis admits it's just what he's heard the plot of the film would be and it's possible there would be some adjustments to that storyline (or that's just the first act and they're breaking him out for some larger, more nefarious purpose).

What do you think of the very likely possibility of a HANGOVER 3? And do you still get a laugh out of Galifianakis?

The characters are still funny together, but like any sequel, funny characters work best when they are thrown into a NEW set of circumstances. And for shit's sake, give the 4th guy something to do!

I'm one of the few people who loved Hangover Part II and am looking forward to this movie. Everyone wanted a different story-line and it seems like this plot is going to satisfy the sequels critics. I can go either way and wouldn't actually mind a carbon copy Part III with Alan as the groom but oh well. You can only please some of the people some of the time...

extra tidbit

I enjoyed Zach Galifianakis more before the joke was always that he's Zach Galifianakis. His stand-up > his movie roles, imo.

Galifianakis: Live at the Purple Onion is pretty solid ...

"If you love Barry Manilow then you're gonna love The Insane Clown Posse!"

I enjoyed The Hangover II, but they're really going to have to come up with a solid story for the third one. I don't know how they're going to justify it happening again...
I personally don't have anything against Zach Galifianakis. I just don't find him that funny. He definitely has his moments, but a lot of it just seems forced and based on awkward moments, comments and tension. That can work sometimes, but when it's consistent it kind of gets old.

sounds like a fine plot

I was so disappointed that II was almost exactly like the first one. I was even more so disappointed that Doug was not part of the gang. I may just skip the third if Doug is still not included.

Confrontational

If you've seen any of Zack's stand-up work in his one man special (Live at the Purple Onion) or The Comedians of Comedy documentary, I'm not sure which one it is but he just rips into some dude who doesn't get his humor. He just keeps harassing the guy who doesn't get it. That's Zack. I mean watch any Between Two Ferns for his sense of humor; he's a ball buster and funny as Hell. He's a master of the Douche Chill joke. Gotta love him.

I wish people would shut the fuck up with the Zach Galifianakis hate. I can take him or leave him, but having agrudge against him is pathetic and isn't warranted.

I have loved Galifianakis since before he was a house hold name. I enjoyed his supporting roles in movies like Out Cold, and his stand up work (Live @ The Purple Onion is a great DVD)... but after the Mel Gibson thing, I did start losing some love for him, and this constant "No No, No fame" is getting really annoying. His stand up is still comical, but the dude seems to be a bit of a little bitch.

I thought Hangover 2 kind of blew ass.. but I'd still be in line to see Hangover 3 opening day,

Come on

Too many people aren't aware that Zach has been around for a while but as more of a stand up comedian which is where he shines. I never really cared for his movie rolls because he is often miscast. He actually a very intelligent person, and they should just give him his own between two ferns show on Adult Swim or something like Tim & Eric.

I think he is great in movies. I've enjoyed him in just about every role I've seen him in. He's funny and he can act.

That being said, I will forever stand by the opinion that his stand-up comedy is atrocious.

Have you ever met rich weirdos? I'm not saying he isn't way past eccentric, but I've met a lot of weird people in my time.

Case in point, I know a person who is wealthy and happens to have bi-polar disorder. When this person is manic, they are completely bizarre. Not saying that they are Allen bizarre, but honestly not far from it.

Besides, he's done a few roles where he isn't Allen from the Hangover.

Also,

getting sick of people acting like Zach isnt supremely talented. I realize he is the hot guy to hate right now, but he's been around for over a decade, and one one of the best standups in the world before he got Hangover. I'm not trying to play the "i knew him before you" card, it's just the truth. Not his fault he's getting type cast, let him make his money, then dissappear for a bit. His 15 minutes are definately not up.

They are really going way too far with Alan

in the first one he was an anti-social man-child. in the 2nd one he was a retarded kid, and in the 3rd one he's gonna be a full blown mental patient? Can't wait to here his forced joke dialogue in that one.

Hangover 3

I love how it's the exact formula as the first and I hope they pull it out again for the 3rd. Finish it as a trilogy and keep the same format, just have different jokes and shock value. This isn't rocket science, why fix whats not broken.

The jokes were just not as funny the second time around for me with a few exceptions. Now if they are switching up the formula it will make me interested. I thought two was rather a lame attempt at a cash grab with a horrible writer. Its easy to make a script when you can just copy and paste the one before it..

I would see a 3rd Hangover film. I agree w/ The_Soloist... I love the 3 characters in the movie. You kind of feel like you've gotten to know them and feel for their issues... even if they keep getting into the same shit over and over.

Zach G. has kept me laughing since I 1st saw "Out Cold."

The second one was just as hilarious as the first "Hangover".

What fanboy71 said below, it's the likeable characters that make the film hilarious, not the story.

And yes, Zach G. is hilarious.

Yawn

I really liked him in the first one, but his character was the most annoying part of the sequel for me. They made him out to be borderline retarded rather than just a little crazy/socially awkward in the first one.
