Zach Galifianakis at the Hollywood Awards Gala

HollywoodNews.com: Zach Galifianakis will soon be seen in Todd Phillips’ “Due Date,” co-starring Robert Downey Jr.. He moved to New York City after failing his last college course by one point at North Carolina State University. He got his start performing his brand of humor in the back of a hamburger joint in Times Square, graduating to doing stand-up at night in clubs and coffee houses in the city. While working as a busboy, he got his first acting job on the NBC sitcom “Boston Common.”

Galifianakis’ breakout role came in Todd Phillips’ blockbuster hit “The Hangover,” the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. He will reunite with Phillips and castmates Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha in “Hangover 2,” slated for a 2011 release.

He also stars in “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” which premiered at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. Recently, he also co-starred with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd in Jay Roach’s comedy “Dinner for Schmucks.” Galifianakis’ additional film credits include the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced hit “G-Force”; the indie feature “Youth in Revolt,” with Michael Cera, Steve Buscemi and Ray Liotta; a cameo in Jason Reitman’s Oscar®-nominated film “Up in the Air”; “What Happens in Vegas,” with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher; and the critically acclaimed true-life drama “Into the Wild,” from director Sean Penn.
