Zach Galifianakis explains to interviewer Scott Aukerman that although he was excited by the success of The Hangover, he’s not into a lot of the showbiz scene. Furthermore, he’s against too much gunplay in movies, and he’s even declined several roles on moral grounds.
When it comes to “a movie you’re acting in,” says Galifianakis, 41, “you don’t have a lot of control – you just show up and vomit your lines out. I mean, 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 … I’m not making any leeway.”
When Aukerman starts to reveal the title of the movie, Hangover 2, Galifianakis stops him cold.
“It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah,” concedes Galifianakis. “I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”
“I’d love to hear about it,” responds Aukerman.
