Before I begin on this casting update -- But has anyone ever seen Zach Galifianakis without his beard? It's crazy. He's actually a pretty normal looking dude. Anyway, I digress...
Galifianakis is normal looking enough to make it plausible for him and Amy Adams to co-star in Fox 2000's dramedy Town House.
Amy Adams, Zach Galifianakis in Talks for Town House
Don't start counting the chickens just yet, as Fox 2000 have run into a number of delays when trying to get Town House into production. After picking up John Carney to direct back in 2007, the studio had to immediately put the project on hold when the Writers Strike kicked in. Now that that's over, the casting of Adams and Galifianakis could just be what this film needs to get rolling.
Written by Doug Wright and John Carney off a novel of the same name, Town House centers on an agoraphobic man, who lives with his teenage son in a historic Boston townhouse that he inherited from his rock star father. With royalties from his father's work dwindling, the man is forced to come to terms with his life. A call girl strikes up a friendship with the man.
I'm sure you can figure out which roles the two will be playing.
Zach Galifianakis has been a hot item for comedic roles ever since the success of The Hangover. The actor can next be seen on the silver screen with Up in the Air, It's Kind of a Funny Story and Dinner for Schmucks. You can see him now on HBO in Bored to Death, where he stars opposite Jason Schwartzman.
