Comedian Says He Was Not Responsible For Mel Gibson's 'Hangover 2' Ousting
Might be slightly old news, but it's funny. On Friday night's episode of Bill Maher's HBO show "Real Time," Zach Galifianakis lit up a joint during a during a discussion about Proposition 19 — the marijuana legalization initiative in California. "That's real," Fox News Correspondent Margaret Hoover said when the "Due Date" star passed along the j much to the surprise of the stunned guests and hooting and hollering audience. Video below the jump.
"Oh my god, look at those dragons!" the comedian eventually screamed in a mock hallucination joke. Who knew Galifianakis was such a bad ass? Then again, he was partly responsible for kicking Mel Gibson to "The Hangover 2" curb. Though, wait, don't be claiming it was his fault. "I do not consult on the movies that I'm in," the actor told MTV when he was asked about "The Hangover 2"-Gibson-gate. "I just show up and I say my lines, usually terribly, and I do consult on dialogue. But as far as hiring and firing of actors, I have no insight into that world whatsoever."
Galifianakis then hilariously said, "Now If you have any questions about Debbie Gibson, I can answer that."
