Hangover Part II Star Zach Galifianakis Plays My Favorite Scene: 'Sometimes Hollywood Gets It Right'

zachgalifianakisb300.jpgWhen he sat down with Movieline to talk The Hangover Part II (in theaters today), comedian-turned-actor Zach Galifianakis expressed a desire to balance his comedic work with dramatic roles. "I would love to do it if I could pull it off," he said. "I don't know if I can, but I would like to." Given that aspiration, Galifianakis couldn't have picked a more perfect film for his round of Movieline's My Favorite Scene -- one featuring funny man-turned-Oscar winner Robin Williams.

Galifianakis named his favorite cinematic moment without hesitation. "It's a Hollywood movie," he began. "There's a scene in a movie called The Fisher King that breaks my heart. It's Robin Williams, Amanda Plummer, Jeff Bridges, and Mercedes Ruehl, and it's in a Chinese restaurant. He sings this song, 'Lydia, oh Lydia/Have you seen Lydia the tattooed lady?' And the camera just pulls back and it's a homeless man singing to this woman who this other couple has set up on a date."

"It's the most charming, beautiful scene," he continued with a smile. "I could watch it over and over again. That, to me, is beautiful movie making, and sometimes Hollywood gets it right. And that was really great."
