Zach Galifianakis - Zach Galifianakis 'Sounds Like An Egg'

Zach Galifianakis thinks he sounds like an egg.

The 42-year-old actor - who has played roles in 'The Hangover' movies, and 'Due Date' with Robert Downey Jr. - takes on the roll of Humpty Alexander Dumpty, in 'Shrek' spin-off movie 'Puss in Boots', and he believes he was chosen because he sounded particularly like the nursery rhyme character.

He said: "It's still an overweight character, even in animation.

"When I got the job, I asked questions like, "Do you want me to change my voice? Is there a certain accent you want me to do?" And, they were like, "No, just talk." I was like, "Oh, I guess I sound like an egg, in real life. I didn't realise."

But it's not all sour grapes for Zach, as he also admitted he would love to do voice-over work again.

The bearded star told Collider.com: "Not a lot of jobs, in general, do you leave your job and feel like it's really easy and fun. I'd love to do it again."
