How Zach Galifianakis Turned Two Scripted Lines Into A Starring Turn In Dinner For Schmucks


Everyone knows Zach Galifianakis from his star-making turn in The Hangover, but did you know that, way back in 2002, he was the star of a late night talk show here on VH1 entitled Late World With Zach? Sadly, in classic “ahead of its time” fashion, no one watched the show and it was canceled after nine short weeks of production. That said, the point here is that we’ve always been huge fans of his here at VH1.

What does this have to do with the price of rice in China? Well, just last night, our friends over in VH1 News caught up with our old buddy Zach on the red carpet for his new flick co-starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, Dinner For Schmucks. In the clip above, he confesses his secret trick for turning his face red on cue (hint: heroin!) and also whips out his iPhone in an attempt to calculate how much time he spent on set improvising. (For those of you with short attention spans, the answer is 27%!)
