Exclusive: Zach Galifianakis Says Playing Humpty Dumpty in ‘Puss in Boots’ Made Him “Scrambled”

Just when you thought that the Shrek franchise was finished after the much-maligned fourth film, Shrek the Third director Chris Miller delivered the most surprising animated hit of last winter with Puss in Boots. The spin-off, which focused on the titular feline who first entered the land of Far Far Away in Shrek 2, gave audiences a heavy dose of the romantic, adorable cat warrior they know and love (voiced by the inimitable Antonio Banderas), but also introduced a handful of fairytale characters previously unseen. One such character is Humpty Dumpty, an old friend (and rival) of Puss’ who serves as the film’s central antagonist.

Zach Galifianakis voiced the sweet and sour Humpty, and we’ve uncovered an exclusive bonus clip from the movie’s upcoming Blu-ray release in which he dishes on the egg-shaped schemer along with producer Latifah Ouaou, who praised the actor’s surprisingly layered performance. Have a look at the clip below, check back later for our full Blu-ray review, and get Puss in Boots on Blu-ray and DVD on Friday!
