Zach Galifianakis (Not a Jew, please stop asking) called director Todd Phillips "the worst Jew in Hollywood". "That's an inside joke," the pudgy comedian explained.
We wonder if it has something to do with Phillips' cameos...
In pretty much every film, Phillips gives himself a few seconds of screen time. Regardless of the movie, the character is always the same: curly black wig, tracksuit, gold necklace. We first met him in "Road Trip":
This is Todd trying to suck on the feet of sleeping Amy Smart. Yes, note the necklace.
Here he is in "Old School":
His one line? "I'm here for the gangbang." The necklace has changed, but the spirit is the same.
We move on to "The Hangover", his first job with Galifianakis.
You can't see the necklace that well, but, trust us, the Chai is there. To get the context of the scene, here's Todd a couple of seconds before (they are in an elevator):
And then we have "Due Date", with Galifianakis again:
The tracksuit is replaced by an equally-creepy bathrobe, and the look on Juliette Lewis' face says it all. The necklace? Let us zoom in:
Yet another Chai. "The worst Jew in Hollywood"? Perhaps Galifianakis is right...
