Zach Galifianakis Hates ‘The Hangover 2′

Just before news that Mel Gibson would have a cameo in The Hangover 2 was screamed in your face like you’re some sort of Russian whore who dared to jacuzzi first, Zach Galifianakis appeared on a Comedy Death-Ray podcast and voiced his frustration with the film, according to Vulture:

After explaining to host Scott Aukerman that he’s turned down several projects on moral grounds, Galifianakis said, “But a movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. 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 [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.” Galifianakis cut Aukerman off with an abrupt warning sound as the host began to mention the film’s title, but after Aukerman pressed, “I know you’re filming The Hhhhhhhh … ” Galifianakis admitted, “It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah. I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”

Of course, Zach’s grievances could have absolutely nothing to do with the Mel Gibson cameo, and everything to do with the fact that this movie is nothing but a giant contractual cash-grab. Yes, The Hangover was funny, but do the story and characters really demand a seq– Wait. Why am I defending someone who’s bitching about getting paid millions of dollars just to pretend he’s half-autistic? SHUT UP AND SAY “REH-TARD” AGAIN, MONKEY! *fires pistols at Zach Galifianakis’ feet*
