Ray Thrown Out Naked for Cheating With Olympia Dukakis on 'Bored to Death' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 15th 2011 6:30AM
'Bored to Death' - 'Two Large Pearls and a Gold Bar'A little tip from this week's 'Bored to Death' (Mon., 9PM ET on HBO). If you're going to cheat on your significant other, try not to do it in the house you share with her. When Ray got caught cheating with an older woman -- Olympia Dukakis, no less -- he was thrown out of the house immediately.

Unfortunately for Ray, and the people out in the streets, he was in the middle of a bubble bath which "immediately" came down, and so he found himself running around outside wearing nothing but a swim cap. Luckily, George is there to help a friend in need, so Ray won't end up homeless. It also keeps him closer so he can continue going on wacky adventures with George and Jonathan, which is really what we're tuning in for every week.

Jason Schwartzman stopped by 'Today' (9AM ET on NBC) to preview the new season of 'Bored to Death,' which premieres Sunday night on HBO. The interview with Hoda and guest-host Kourtney Kardashian displayed Schwartzman's full range of comic talents and smooth interview flirting skills.

Schwartzman revealed that in the new 'Bored to Death' season, his struggling writer-turned-amateur-private-detective character Jonathan Ames discovers his dad isn't actually his biological father, and goes on a search to find his real birth-father. He also promised the new season would feature "plushy sex, elder love, and Ted Danson as Don Quixote."

Zach Galifianakis Tries to Outdo Smoking Pot on 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (VIDEO)

Zach Galifianakis, 'Real Time with Bill Maher'Back on October 29, 2010, Zach Galifianakis set the Internet on fire after his appearance on 'Real Time' (Fri., 10PM ET on HBO). Bill Maher threw up a still shot of Galifianakis smoking a joint and announced that the clip of that appearance "got over 2 million hits on YouTube."

In an effort to up the ante and generate even more buzz, Maher pulled out a tray with all the paraphernalia to shoot Galafianakis up with heroin. "Never done this before in my life," Galifianakis admitted. "Yeah, everything's ending, so let's just do it."

Of course, everything didn't end as predicted, so now Galifianakis has to deal with the aftermath of his decision. What on earth can they do to top shooting up heroin live on the air?

Zach Galifianakis Dresses Like Annie for an Epic Musical Performance on 'Saturday Night Live' (VIDEO)

Zach Galifianakis, 'Saturday Night Live'The success of any given episode of 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) often rides on how funny its host is. Thus, there were high hopes for this week's installation, featuring the second hosting spot for funnyman Zach Galifianakis.

Galifianakis proved he was ready to do anything for a laugh when he stripped down during his monologue to reveal Annie's classic red and white dress as he burst into the little red-headed girl's signature song, 'Tomorrow.'

He was accompanied by an easel sporting a notebook of pre-written messages that he tore off as he went along. It was a surreal moment that reminded us of INXS's 'Mediate' video. But it's the seriousness with which Galifianakis tackles these moments that makes them so hilarious.

'Saturday Night Live' - Zach Galifianakis / Jessie J Recap

'Saturday Night Live' - Zach Galifianakis / Jessie J Recap['Saturday Night Live' - 'Season 36, Episode 17']

You can count on Zach Galifianakis to bring his own peculiar take on humor when he hosts 'Saturday Night Live,' a humor that seems to embrace the live and unpredictable nature of the show. Not many other hosts carry with them the reputation or the chops to bring the element of "anything can happen" back to the forefront, and it's what I enjoyed most about this episode.

Even if that "anything" turns into "nothing," we still watch the show with a different kind of anticipation that can help make every sketch just a smidge funnier. In this, his second hosting stint, Zach Galifianakis put out pretty much what I expected: an unwavering commitment to his comedic ideals, enough awkward pauses to keep us from getting too comfortable, and a Hoobastank reference.

Margaret Hoover Claims Zach Galifianakis Was Really Smoking Weed on 'Real Time' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 5th 2010 4:33PM
Comedian Zach Galifianakis caused quite a stir when he lit up what appeared to be a marijuana-filled joint on 'Real Time With Bill Maher' last week. Since then, both he and Maher have denied it was real.

However, Margarat Hoover, who was on the 'Real Time' panel when Galifiankis sparked the J, disputes this denial.

Appearing on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on MSNBC) she had this to say about the incident:

"Now, of course, Maher is saying it was cloves, it was definitely not cloves," she explained.

"I asked Zach afterward, and he said it was THC-free marijuana," she revealed.

Margaret Hoover's great-grandfather, President Hebert Hoover, created the Bureau of Narcotics, which eventually pressured the states into banning marijuana. While we certainly don't think that has anything to do with why Hoover just narked Galifianakis out, it's an interesting little factoid.

Zach Galifianakis Answers Weed Incident with On-Air Wig Reveal (VIDEO)

Zach Galifianakis Reveals Wig on 'Late Night'When Zach Galifianakis appeared on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC), of course Jimmy Fallon had to broach the subject of the actor/comedian's smoking a real (or fake?) joint on HBO's 'Real Time with Bill Maher.'

Galifianakis said, "In the entertainment business, [there's] a lot of smoke and mirrors, and there's a lot of things that aren't necessarily true or real--" at which point, he swiftly removed his mop of hair to reveal a shaved head.

The studio audience gasped, and the host pulled on his beard to see if that too was fake. The actor jokingly blamed bedbugs, and he cracked up when Fallon referenced unabashed wig queen Wendy Williams.

Comedian Zach Galifianakis: I Was a Teenage Hitchhiker (VIDEO)

Comedian Zach Galifianakis: I Was a Teenage HitchhikerTake a look at the photo to your right. Would you give this man a ride in your car? Sure you would! The amiable grin, the fuzzy beard, the lovable "teddy-bear-ish" demeanor ... what could possibly go wrong? What indeed?

Comic Zach Galifianakis is starring in the new film 'Due Date,' along with Robert Downey Jr. It's a buddy flick about two men traveling on the open road. And on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Zach talked about some real life road trips of his own.

Galifianakis used to hitchhike as a teen in college -- and he made some very questionable decisions. For instance, while trying to thumb down a ride, Zach would hold up a sign -- which read as follows: "I DON'T HAVE A GUN."

Zach Galifianakis Lights Up a Joint on 'Real Time' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 1st 2010 2:20PM
On 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (Friday, 10 PM ET on HBO) the panel was discussing California's ballot initiative Proposition 19, which would legalize various marijuana activities and allow local governments to collect taxes on marijuana sales. Zach Galifianakis decided to make an unusual contribution to the debate.

"It's a tricky thing politically to jump on that bandwagon, Galifianakis said. "Because I think that maybe people see it as taboo still..."

Then, as Lawrence O'Donnell began to say something, the crowd started laughing and applauding because Galifianakis had lit up a joint.

After inhaling with great gusto, Galifianakis passed the joint to Margerat Hoover, who didn't partake but smelled it and confirmed that it was real.

Galifianakis's point was that smoking pot doesn't suddenly make you a dysfunctional freak, as he believes some opponents of Prop 19 think it does. While it's doubtful that Galifianakis's stunt is actually going to influence how any Californian votes Tuesday, it does further confirm the comedian's role as this generation's Andy Kaufman.

'Bored to Death': Ray Accidentally Punches Kevin Bacon in the Nose (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Oct 25th 2010 5:09AM
'Bored to Death' -- Ray Accidentally Punches Kevin Bacon in the NoseIn a sense, all the characters on 'Bored to Death' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO) are leading a double-life. For instance, even mopey author Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman) enjoys a second career as a secret private eye. But even on this show, Ray Hueston (Zack Galifianakis) is a special case. Ray is an artist who draws his own comic book -- starring himself as a character called "Super Ray."

Now, at last, there is major excitement about Ray's art -- when actor Kevin Bacon arrives and displays an interest in portraying "Super Ray" in a film version of the comic. Everything could finally be working out for real-life Ray -- if he can avoid messing things up.

Then, Ray's sometime lover Jennifer (Kristen Wiig) shows up, and begins berating Ray while standing in the middle of a bar. Ray takes the abuse -- until he can't take it for a single second longer. A bartender wants to toss Ray out, and in anger, the artist pulls his arm back ... and accidentally punches Kevin Bacon in the nose. Not good.

'Bored to Death': A Writer With a Gun to His Head (VIDEO)

'Bored to Death': A Writer With a Gun to His HeadIt's just one of those days on 'Bored to Death' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO). One of those "getting kidnapped by a pair of armed thugs" kind of days. That's never fun -- especially when you're new to the whole "guns and criminals" scene ...

'Bored' hero Jonathan Ames (Jason Schwartzman) is a struggling novelist with a drinking problem. When the series began, Jon had two big problems: His literary career was going nowhere, and his girlfriend had dumped him. Jon needed to change his life -- so on a whim, he started a new career as a private detective. But can a sensitive author make it in a world of bad guys and bullets?

Don't Forget Zach Galifianakis' Awesome TV Work (VIDEO)

by Ryan McKee, posted Sep 28th 2010 5:30PM
We understand that it's impossible to make a comedic movie these days without Zach Galifianakis. The Internet is buzzing about his upcoming film 'It's Kind of a Funny Story' and his November re-teaming with director Todd Phillips in 'Due Date.' While we love that the mainstream is finally embracing his talent, remember not to forget how wonderful the Great Bearded One is on TV.

Galifianakis's work on 'Dog Bites Man,' 'The Comedians of Comedy,' 'Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!', 'Saturday Night Live,' 'Reno 911' and even 'Tru Calling' (where he played a Eliza Dushku's supervising mortician) should not be overlooked. Plus, his performance in the HBO series 'Bored to Death,' which just premiered its second season, may be his best work yet.
