LOS ANGELES – Greek-American actor and comedian Zach Galifianakis is taking his intentionally uncomfortable talk show on the road, Variety reported. The first trailer for Netflix’s Between Two Ferns: The Movie was released on September 3.
The star-studded trailer, begins with Matthew McConaughey and the actor’s name is misspelled as “McConnogay” at the bottom of the screen, Variety reported, adding that “the two engage in a tense one-on-one as Galifianakis makes the actor feel as uneasy as possible.”
“Of all the things you can win an Oscar for, how surprised are you that you won one for acting?” Galifianakis asks McConaughey, Variety reported.
“Here we go,” McConaughey responds.
Will Ferrell appears in the film as an executive who demands that Galifianakis take Between Two Ferns on the road for 10 more episodes, Variety reported, noting that “Galifianakis brings celebs like Benedict Cumberbatch, Brie Larson, Jon Hamm, and David Letterman to his set, asking them his traditionally uncomfortable questions — like when Larson got her first period.”
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits and ding-dongs,” says Galifianakis in a toast to his crew, Variety reported. “Some people would say we’re the crazy ones, but I think we’re geniuses.”
Between Two Ferns: The Movie, co-written and directed by Scott Aukerman, debuts on Netflix on September 20.
