Zach Galifianakis, Is That You?!

It's been quite a while since Zach Galifianakis made a red carpet appearance, so when he popped up for a special presentation of Birdman in NYC over the weekend, we were surprised to see him debuting a whole new look. Zach first started dropping pounds over a year ago; he told Conan O'Brien in 2013, "I stopped drinking and I just kind of put the weight off," but he's looking thinner and more healthy than ever. Things have been pretty busy for Zach so far this year; back in March, he appeared in Muppets Most Wanted and interviewed Barack Obama on Between Two Ferns. Here's hoping he's coming back into the spotlight after Birdman hits theaters on Oct. 17, because let's be honest: the shortage of hilarious Zach Galifianakis moments has left a void in our lives.
