Oscar season has brought out the best in Zach Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns,” his Internet talk show-slash-thought experiment. (How long can you be questioned by Zach Galifianakis?) Months after saying that the video series was probably dead, it isn’t: This week, Funny or Die released a special “Oscar edition,” featuring a lot of famous people all at once, in dresses.
Part 2 debuted this morning. Unlike part 1, it features 100 percent less look-I’m-drunk Anne Hathaway and “Christ of
Breakdance Waltz.” But it does feature an “average looking redhead in a weird dress” (Jessica Chastain) and Sally Field — who has a confession to make: “I just have to tell you something really, really honestly: I hate pennies. I hate them.”
To be fair, she was answering Galifianakis’ question, “Do you look at a penny differently now that you’ve been in Lincoln?”
All that and Brad Lee Cooper, too, who channels his anger-challenged character from Silver Linings Playbook.
Watch the NSFW video below. Are we alone in hoping for a part 3 (set destruction notwithstanding)?
