Over the past few years, mainstream Hollywood has offered Zack to appear as a comedian in many films (Due to Date, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Bored To Death, etc.) where he was seen as a bearded man. Such roles made it easy for blockbuster movies to run to packed houses, but such offers haven't made it easy for him. He is not a just comedian on screen but a very humorous in off screen too.
A decade ago, when this actor had started off as a production for an independent film ten years ago, he had introduced himself to movie’s producer by saying: 'My name is Galifianakis- ‘starts with a gal and ends with a kiss.' The producer was surprised by his quality of humour.
Industry people always feel that Zach has a need even for him to find humor all the time. Quite some time back, when his father died, instead of being depressed by the news, people had seen him just laughing so hard.
In this film industry, even his fans found his name was tough to pronounce, but everyone had accepted that his work and screen presence became indelible. This actor is so down-to-earth that he does not have a publicist and does not even have an assistant yet. Galifianakis says.
He has struggled with depression before. Always lauded for his comedy touch in his performance, critics rate him as a phenomenal actor (for comedy only). He finds a lot of happiness in the sound of people laughing. People always laugh at his jokes that he portrays in films.
This 46-year old comic actor always gets a chance to tone the comedy down and inject sometimes pathos into his character. He always says that he does not get the kind of movies he likes. He also likes good stories, more grounded kind of stuff.
He also wants to appear in sad movies- that kind of characters are too his favourite type. He loves to appear in emotional movies too. He was seen in “The Hangover Triology” (2009-13) and won MTV award for his best comedic performances.
He was even noted for his supporting roles in ‘Youth in Revolt’, ‘
’ and ‘Up in the Air’, etc. In August 2012, Galifianakis married Quinn Lundberg and were blessed with a child. The actor was born on October 1, 1969, in Wilkesboro, North Carolina.
