Zach Galifianakis to escape from mental institution in ‘Hangover III,’ according to Zach Galifianakis

Now we know why Alan, Zach Galifianakis’s socially challenged characters in “The Hangover” movies, won’t get married in a potential third installment in the series. He’ll be too busy escaping from a mental institution.

In a Rolling Stone cover story on Galifianakis, to be published next week, the actor says he is “getting fricking phone calls already” about doing a third “Hangover.” And he says the plot will stray from the format of the first two, instead focusing on how Alan’s buddies — Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and presumably Doug (Justin Bartha) — break him out of a mental hospital.

Naturally, that’s not the only fun tidbit Rolling Stone has teased from the interview.

Apparently at the Vanity Fair/Bloomberg party that followed this year’s White House Correspondents’ dinner, he introduced himself to Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and their significant others by saying, “Nice to meet you! I didn’t realize it was Gay Night by the swimming pool.” He meant it as a joke. Apparently it was not taken that way.

While working briefly as a writer for “Saturday Night Live,” he also once tried to pitch a sketch that involved host Britney Spears spontaneously bleeding from the mouth. Spears also was not amused.

And when his future “Between Two Ferns” guest Sean Penn offered Galifianakis a role in “Into the Wild,” he told the actor-director he had an appointment at Arby’s but Penn should, “send my Jews the script.”

I can’t wait to see what sort of lines Galifianakis improvs during that stay in the mental institution.
