Galifianakis was last seen in the lead role of Beanie Baby founder Ty Warner in the AppleTV+ film “The Beanie Bubble” in 2023, starring alongside “Succession” star Sarah Snook, Elizabeth Banks and Geraldine Viswanathan, but is perhaps most known for his role as Alan in “The Hangover” trilogy, which made a total of over $1 billion at the box office since their release.

The comedian earned a SAG Award as part of the cast of “Birdman” in 2015 and two Emmy Awards for his series "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.” The actor was also nominated for the same award after the success of his blackened dramedy “Baskets,” which aired on FX from 2016 to 2019. Young audiences also may be familiar with the actor, voicing The Joke in “The Lego Batman Movie” and the Laika animated feature “Missing Link” in 2019.

Zach Galifianakis is the latest A-list name to be cast in the latest season of “Only Murders in the Building,” but who else will be joining him in the new series?
