Zach Galifianakis to Attend Dinner for Schmucks


Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) is in talks to join the Jay Roach-directed Dinner for Schmucks, says The Hollywood Reporter.

He’s joining Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Lucy Punch in the Paramount comedy about the most pathetic guy ever to be invited to another man’s weekly dinner party.

Galifianakis is playing an assistant manager of a mattress store who is dating Carell’s ex-wife.

The film is scheduled to begin filming in the fall for a July 23, 2010 release.
