Zack not so Funny?

After THE HANGOVER's huge success this summer, everyone wanted a piece of Zack Galifianakis for their comedy. He eventually decided to star with Robert Downey, Jr. in DUE DATE and a HANGOVER sequel but that doesn't mean he's sticking to straight comedy. Branching out a little bit (like all comic actors seem to do eventually), Galifianakis will star in the upcoming dramedy IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY for director Ryan Fleck (HALF NELSON).

The film, which is based on a novel of the same name, follows a teenage boy who's sent to a mental hospital after a bout with depression. He's mistakenly housed in the adult ward where he meets a bunch of "offbeat adults" (one of which would be Galifianakis) and a quirky girl he falls in love with (Emma Roberts). The release describes Galifianakis' role as "a meatier part with dramatic elements.

Though Fleck and partner Anna Boden have worked indie on their last two films, the project is currently set up at Focus Features and a shoot later this fall is planned.

Extra Tidbit: The original article also claims DUE DATE has wrapped filming but that can't be true, can it?

I don't know if he'll ever become someone I can completely take seriously (unless he were to drastically change his physical image or something), but I have a feeling he should be able to pull off a role like this pretty well.

His stand up is awesome, he'll probably be a great dramatic actor.

Awesome

Good for Zack. He's a great talent, and it would be horrible for Hollywood to pigeonhole him as the goofy retard friend. Give him dramatic roles!

Up in the Air

Not sure why it is not listed on IMDB, but he is also in Jason Reitman's new film Up in the Air.
