‘Between Two Ferns’ Oscar Edition: Zach Galifianakis Returns With Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway

Between Two Ferns
Funny or Die

“Did you ever think about changing your name to Christoph Breakdance?” So says Zach Galifianakis to Oscar-nominee Christoph Waltz in the triumphant return of the Funny or Die series “Between Two Ferns.” Joining Zach in this special 2013 Oscar mega-edition are nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams.

Zach Galifianakis hasn’t shot an official episode of “Between Two Ferns” in almost two years but he’s back with a vengeance with a new Oscar video (which is only Part 1, meaning Part 2 is on the way shortly).

It’s a video that, for the most part is hilarious. Jennifer Lawrence plays bitchy mean, Waltz plays uptight actor and Amy Adams just plays against type. The only segment that misses wildly is Anne Hathaway who comes out trying to play a drunk version of herself and, as our own Matt Singer notes, doesn’t seem to understand the concept of the show. Hathaway catches a lot of grief for being a grown up theater kid who tries way too hard and this video won’t do much to shake that preconception (even down to the dated ‘30 Rock‘ “what the what” quote).

But all told, a very enjoyable entry in the Between Two Ferns series and we look forward to who’s participating in the next installment. (Please say Daniel Day Lewis, please say Daniel Day Lewis…)

UPDATE: Part 2 is here and dare we say even funnier than the first. Watch the new interviews with Jessica Chastain, Sally Field, Bradley Cooper and even “Daniel Day-Lewis!”
