(Daddy, why do they use communion wine to test the mattresses?)
Variety repots that Zach Galifianakis is in negotiations to join the cast of director Jay Roach’s upcoming comedy Dinner for Schmucks. The flick would team Galifianakis opposite Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Lucy Punch. Per Variety:
Based on the 1998 French film written and directed by Francis Veber, “Schmucks” centers on the most pathetic guest to ever grace one man’s weekly dinner gathering. Galifianakis will play an assistant manager of a mattress store who is dating Carell’s ex-wife.
Hang on, did you just say “assistant manager of a mattress store”? Sweet, that’s exactly what the girl in my basement and I thought you said. Personally, I can’t think of a more simplistic-yet-effective character description than to say that someone is the assistant manager of a mattress store. You see, several years ago, when I arrived by ship to Los Angeles, I was excited at the possibilities of what lay before my fellow minorities and I. But what we eventually failed to receive in opportunity, the city of L.A. more than compensated for with it’s over saturation of mattress super stores and their advertisements. Seriously, after 8:00pm on Hollywood Boulevard, you can score a California King almost as easily as crack rock.
