[ # ] The crazy way Louis Anderson got the role of Zach Galifianakis’ mom
June 13th, 2019 under Conan O'Brien

When you heard that Louis Anderson was going to play Zach Galifianakis’ mom on FX’s Baskets, you were like how did that come about? Conan O’Brien wondered that too, so he asked the comedian about it on his TBS show yesterday.

Anderson said that Galifianakis asked the producer what is the mom supposed to be like, and the producer said that all I know is that is a sound. That sound was a grunt and Zach said, “You mean Louis Anderson?” That is when they called him up and offered him the part.

Was Anderson reluctant to put on the wig and dress? When they called him on the phone, he excitingly said, “Yes! I will!”

The rest is Hollywood history. But how wild is it that he got cast just because of a sound he makes.
