Okay, well, not really, but he’s looking absolutely hysterical in Masterminds, the outrageous true crime comedy story from Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) alongside Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis.
Bored of his job, David Ghanatt (Galifianakis) is convinced by his work crush (Wiig) to rob a bank vault.
With plenty of comedy to keep audiences pinned to their seats with laughter, mostly resulting from the absurdity of Ghanatt’s criminal thinking, it just happens to be that Masterminds gets even more bizarre in the fact that the events in the film actually happened! Based on the 1997 Loomis Fargo Robbery in North Dakota, Ghanatt and his accomplices stole more than $17.3 million dollars from an armored car, resulting in an international investigation by the FBI, which was termed the ‘Hillbilly Hunt’ by the local media.
With the genius of Zach Galifianakis, as well as some particularly memorable turns from Kristen Wigg and Jason Sudeikis you can bet that Masterminds will be a riot on August 6.
