Zach Galifianakis Uses 'SNL' to Hire an Assistant

In his return as 'Saturday Night Live' guest host this weekend, 'Hangover: Part II' star Zach Galifianakis was uniquely versatile, his understated deadpan humor somehow elevating almost every sketch he was in.

He took on characters such as a lumberjack, an earnest 'View' fan, and Hannibal Lechter; he even donned a Little Orphan Annie dress and sang.

Saving one of the biggest laughs for last, the 41-year-old North Carolina native brought the episode to a close by thanking viewers while sporting a newly shaved 'hawk on his head, apologizing that they ran out of time for "the Mr. T sketch."

A highlight was his digital short, pairing Galifianakis with kids who were applying for the job of his personal assistant. Our money's on the suck-up kid ("Don't cry, Zach, you look perfect"), or the girl who admits it's fun not to do your job. The boy with the stinky feet is probably too honest for his own good.
