Zach Galifianakis Ruins Your Day By Suggesting Mr. Chow-Centric 'Hangover' Spin-Off, Plus New TV Spot

There's probably mixed feelings going around about the conclusion this Thursday, when the third film opens, of "The Hangover" trilogy. For some, the films have been among the most seminal comedies of their generation, making Bradley Cooper an A-lister, and introducing the world at large to the talents of Zach Galafianakis. For others, they've been increasingly lazy, misogynistic, fratty films the popularity of which will never quite be explained.

Ken Jeong, The Hangover Part II

There's probably mixed feelings going around about the conclusion of "The Hangover" trilogy when the third film opens this Thursday. For some, the films have been among the most seminal comedies of their generation, making Bradley Cooper an A-lister, and introducing the world at large to the talents of Zach Galafianakis. For others, they've been increasingly lazy, misogynistic, fratty films the popularity of which will never quite be explained.

But the trilogy, at least for the moment, is winding down with the release of "The Hangover Part III," but given that it's likely to at least match the record-breaking box office of the previous installments, will this really be the end? We're probably a few years off a "Hangover Part IV," at least, but a spin-off might be more feasible, and Galifianakis, talking to Entertainment Tonight (via Digital Spy), has an idea of what it might be -- and to be honest, we suspect he's trolling.

"The 'Hangover' movies... have to be in the context of the three of us, I think, and Doug as well. If there was a spinoff -- I don't think I envision a spinoff -- but if there was one, I think one with [Mr. Chow, Ken Jeong's demented Chinese gangster character] would work." In small doses, Jeong, best known aside from the "Hangover" films for his role on "Community", can be very funny, but as he's become more and more central to the "Hangover" franchise, he's become less and less entertaining, so this sounds like pretty much the worst idea ever to us. It should also be emphasized that Galfianakis is purely hypothesizing at this point, especially to Warner Bros executives who might have their finger over the greenlight button.

But are we wrong? Would you flock to a Ken Jeong-centric "Hangover" spin-off? Is there another character in the movies that you'd rather see the film focus on? Let us know in the comments section below, but not before you check out a new TV spot that plays up the bromance aspects of the film; not the sort of thing you'd usually get from a big R-rated comedy like this one...
