Robert Downey Jr. Nearly Punches Zach Galifianakis
Robert Downey Jr has revealed that he almost smacked his Due Date co-star Zach Galifianakis when they first met.
The Iron Man star says that he didn’t recognize Galifianakis and thought he was being accosted by a nutty fan of the comic book variety.
“Before we started shooting I was down in Venice and some weird guy walks by and goes, ‘Hi, I think I’m doing a movie with you and [director] Todd Phillips,” says Downey.
He goes on: “I thought, ‘I might have to punch this guy’. And then I realized, ‘Oh my God, that’s Zach’. We have definitely come a long way since then.”
Due Date is slated for a Nov. 5 release.
