TFF 2013 Opening Night Film ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ Gets the Broadway Treatment

Tom and Matt Berninger help Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson adapt ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ for the stage in this hilarious Funny or Die video.

After I interviewed the president, I was looking for something different.

We’ve always thought Mistaken For Strangers was ripe for the stage, but apparently, we weren’t the only ones! Bored to Death co-stars Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson enlisted Mistaken for Strangers stars Tom and Matt Berninger to help them get the video take-off just right.

Galifianakis and Danson recreate some of the most memorable scenes from the film, including Matt Berninger’s infamous stage-to-crowd walk as Tom trails behind him with the microphone cord. After watching this video, you’ll wish that Mistaken For Strangers: The Play was opening on Broadway for real!
