Renn covered in great detail yesterday the spirited brilliance of Between Two Ferns, Zach Galifianakis’ web series where he plays an unhinged, bitter version of himself interviewing celebrities. I don’t have much to add aside from the fact that Galifiniakis, this Galifiniakis, should be hosting any future Oscar ceremonies should the Academy decide to grow a pair*. Yesterday’s edition had the performer facing off with angry Jennifer Lawrence, confused Christoph Waltz and a drunk and horny Anne Hatheway.
I love how he dismisses Jessica Chastain and historical biopic Zero Dark Thirty with a “Who cares then? It’s not the real thing.” Play that faker off, Zach!
*Seth MacFarlane’s hosting gig is more about introducing him into the mainstream than introducing the mainstream to his crass brand of humor.
