After more than a decade performing stand-up comedy and making both television and film appearances, Zach Galifianakis broke through to wider recognition with his co-starring role as “Alan Garner”, in the comedy mega-hit, The Hangover. Later that year, he played a large role in the CGI-heavy kids movie, G-Force and then appeared in memorable supporting parts in the films, Up in the Air (as a laid-off employee), Youth in Revolt (as a loutish stepfather), and Dinner for Schmucks as one of the title characters. More recently, he co-starred with Keir Gilchrist in the teen dramedy, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, with Robert Downey Jr. in the road trip comedy, Due Date and alongside Will Ferrell in the political spoof, The Campaign. He also voiced “Humpty Dumpty” in the animated film Puss in Boots, and reprised his character in both The Hangover Part II and the upcoming The Hangover Part III (2013).
