You may know Zach Galifianakis as the global movie star who acts in movies alongside Oprah, but before all that he was just a guy interviewing major celebrities between two ferns on Funny or Die. He hasn’t done the show in about two years, but he’s brought it roaring back to life by doing an interview with none other than Jerry Seinfeld, who is ultimately bumped over to make room for rapper Cardi B.
The interview starts off quite awkwardly as Galifianakis mocks Seinfeld’s show for being a “launchpad for whites,” following it up by asking about what’s next in “lazy, car-based, non-comedy.” Seinfeld is silent for a bit, only to ask the host if he thinks THE HANGOVER would be more well-remembered if not for the two sequels. Things get a bit tenser when Seinfeld is ultimately pumped to a nearby milk carton when rap sensation Cardi B makes a surprise appearance. Sorry, Seinfeld, gotta make room for the stars, you know?
You catch Galifianakis in the show BASKETS on FX and in the movie A WRINKLE IN TIME which is on Blu-ray now.
