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.

Zach Galifianakis and Paul Rudd, who appear together in Paramount’s upcoming comedy “Dinner for Schmucks,” are teaming up again to star in the Paramount comedy “Will.”
Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are directing, with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez on board to produce.
The story follows an ordinary guy (Rudd) who lives in a world where people’s lives and destinies are being written by scribes in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer (Galifianakis) has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted, ending up on a journey to fulfill his hidden potential.
The script, by Demetri Martin, used to be a DreamWorks project but moved over to Paramount.
UTA-repped Faris and Dayton became a hit directing duo with “Little Miss Sunshine” but have struggled to find a follow-up effort. They were attached to do “Used Guys” at Fox, but that fell apart due to a ballooning budget.
Rudd, repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, also appeared in Paramount’s hit “I Love You, Man.”
For Galifianakis, repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, “Will” continues his streak of booking high-profile comedies that began with “Hangover.” He next appears in “Due Date” with Robert Downey Jr.
