He''s so fucking obnoxious. Not funny, not cute, and not gonna happen. Next.
Ugly guy who looks like he took a dump in his pants. Riding the "quirky" wave where unattractive men like him and Seth Rogen (star of the Green Hornet flop) get to be action men and seduce the girl.\
People will not fall for this.
R3 is a moron. He is not trying to be an action star.
When was Galifianakis an action hero?! He''s always the goofy best friend.
"I gained weight for a role. ''The Zack Galifianakis Story''"
I might''ve spoken too soon. I hate his film appearances, but his "Between Two Ferns" interviews are actually pretty funny.
I think he''s hysterical. Who cares if he''s fat and ugly?
You should see him as a stand-up. He is hilarious.
Because if a guy doesn''t have six pack abs and look like a porn model, he''s worthless.\
I love DL.
No, not worthless, R10. But we''re talking about MOVIE STARS. For the love of god bring back the days when they weren''t all fat schlubs. These days everything is aimed towards straight frat boys who want to see their nasty asses reflected back at them. Give me Grant. Give me Redford. Give me Newman. Give me Holden. Give me Beatty.
[blockquote] I love this man for many reasons, one of them being: "Sometimes I do something and I think to myself, ''That''s so Raven.''" [/blockquote]\
Puh-leeze. Everything he does makes me think "he''s so annoying."
He does those dry deliveries of punchlines which I really like.
I find him too creepy to actually be funny.
I don''t think he''s trying to be a movie star ala Newman, Grant, or Holden. Sheesh. He is a comedian who is in movies. Not the same thing. He cracks me up.
I liked him on Tru Calling. Elsewhere, not so much.
[quote]For the love of god bring back the days when they weren''t all fat schlubs.\
They''re not. Your hyperbole doesn''t reflect reality in the least. Actors like Gerard Butler, Christian Bale, Robert Downey Jr., Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Robert Pattinson, and Johnny Depp are the big stars.\
And I know DL has had a thread about almost all of them being "fat" and "old" and "ugly," but in the real world, they are -- or recently were -- handsome, sexy movie stars who look nothing like Galifianakis or Rogen or Kevin James or other "schlubs."\
I was looking at lists of top actors and didn''t see even Seth Rogen in any of them, let alone someone like Galifianakis. You sound like the precious kind of queen who can''t handle seeing even one wrinkle, one extra ounce, one hair out of place without screeching that "no one is beautiful anymore!" and running out of the theater.
This thread brought out the typical, stupid, bitchy, jealous queens. Nothing new.
They may not be fat schlubs, but they''re old.
I love him in HBO''s "Bored To Death"
That interview with Steve Carell made me laugh out loud. For real. The timing of the broken chair was just perfect.
The photo at link looks Photoshopped. That''s his head on some other guy''s body. To begin with, he''s much fatter than that in real life. \
Anyway, Zack Galifianakis has been around forever, just because some here think he''s new or "trying to happen", you are clearly unaware he''s been a comic for many years.\
He used to be on David Letterman, a lot, always sitting at his piano doing these weird stream of consciousness monologues! \
Zack also had a show on MTV, in the late 90s or early 2000s, it was way ahead of it''s time, it was way too weird for most of MTV''s audience at the time to get, he would have been better off on Comedy Central.
Before him was Jack Black and before him was Steve Zahn.\
This week''s quirky schlubbo. They seem to be getting more and more unattractive though.
He tells gay jokes, but instead of referring to us as "faggots," he uses the word "gaylords." Progress!
I''m convinced that Zack Galifianakis is a gay bear!
R21, that''s an outtake from The Hangover 2. Hope they include it as an extra in the unrated DVD.
Did he also show cock in the first Hangover when he was peeing?
Couldn''t stand the guy at first, but he''s grown on me.
Is he family?
I think he is sexy as fuck.\
There... I said it. So I have changed what I like as I hit my 40s. Who cares!\
The Oscar edition of Between Two Ferns is awesome!
He;s got Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams to name a few.
They had to literally drag Anne off the set. I'm sure we can expect the same at the Oscars.
[quote]But we're talking about MOVIE STARS.
Oh, you mean like Ernest Bornine, William Bendix, Oliver Hardy, tons of others...those kind of MOVIE STARS?
r37, you know what they mean.
I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to see beautiful people on screen. It's escapist and harmless.
The bullshit part, IMO, is not wanting anything but wall-to-wall glamour 24/7.
He's much too old to still be trying for laughs in "Between Two Ferns" with gross-out poop jokes. I can't respect someone who is that obnoxiously juvenile still at age 43. Sorry.
r39, that's a straight male thing. A lot of straight guys would probably find that funny, regardless of the comedian's age.
Juvenile guys rule the movie industry now. It's gotten so bad, it's infesting other genres that are normally free of it. Gross out humour is now being marketed to females via Bridesmaids and even Girls.

Actually, Naomi Watts is 44.
Zach Galifianakis awkwardly interview Brad Pitt on "Between Two Ferns"
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
