Downey Jr Wants Hangover Role
Downey Jr met Zach Galifianakis – star of the Hangover – whilst shooting Due Date and the two have since talked about working with one another. It is understood that Downey Jr is looking for more of a substantial role than a cameo appearance.
Talking about his new found friendship to Extra, Downey Jr said: “I’d love to work with Zach again, but I’m not going to go do a ‘day’ on his sequel. Let’s not kid ourselves. Besides, they’ve had enough squabbles over their paltry salaries. They can’t afford me.”
Galifianakis added: “We’re not very much alike, but we do like each other.”
Downey Jr is familiar with the concept of hangovers having spent half of his adult life in alcohol and crack cocaine stupors. Incredibly he has salvaged his career and become a cult hero amongst fans.
Due Date opens in the UK this Friday, November 5th.
