Zach Galifianakis to Star in ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses’

Zach Galifianakis exploded on the internet this week with his interview with President Obama. The President starred in Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis on Funny or Die (in case you missed it, watch here). With so much internet buzz this week, we were happy to see him continue that buzz with a recently announced Fox 2000 film that was just picked up. Zach is set to star in Keeping Up With the Joneses, a comedy that he will star alongside with Jon Hamm. The Hangover franchise star’s new film is about a suburban couple that comes to find out their neighbors are undercover spies.

Keeping Up With the Joneses has Greg Mottola attached to direct, who was responsible for comedies such as Superbad and Paul. The project will be produced by Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald.

Zach Galifianakis stars in Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, where he interviews celebrities while sitting being two potted fern plants. The short show is off-beat and funny, and Zach is known to make fun of his interviewees. Some of his past stars have been Bradley Cooper, Michael Cera, Natalie Portman, Will Ferrel and Steve Carell to name a few. Zach’s most recent film credits include The Hangover III and You Are Here.
