Is one of those a clip of Zach saying "I'm Zach Galifaniakis...I hope I'm pronouncing that right."
There's a good (if a bit short) profile on Michael Cera in New York magazine that discloses the fact that he and Arteta re-wrote much of the script.

Here's a brief clip I found with Zach in it (courtesy google alerts)

This movie was pretty enjoyable. You can definitely tell the parts where Cera must have gone in and rewritten his lines in the screenplay, to tailor them more to his voice and to what he does best. For those that criticize him for playing the same character over and over again, it's nice to see him stretching out, playing 3 characters in this (yes, 3...I'll let the other one be a surprise). The movie starts off a little better than it ends up finishing, but overall it's better than its January release date would indicate. Its sensibilities are more in tune with Artera's previous work ("Chuck and Buck", "The Good Girl") than with something like "Superbad". Zach's part is very small.
just saw this yesterday and enjoyed it. nothing groundbreaking but better than the trailers make it look. probably the best michael cera movie so far.
Going to see this. Michael Cera with a mustache is too much.
yeah, I saw a screening on Tuesday - pretty enjoyable and a lot of fun when Francois shows up
I think I enjoyed this more than anything I saw in theaters in 2009. I went in knowing almost nothing about it and not really expecting much, and ended up pretty much loving what I saw. Easily Michael Cera's best performance yet, especially during the Francois sequences. A very fun, highly entertaining movie.
Yeah, I really enjoyed this one.
Blindsided me with coolness and funniness.
I went in not knowing much, and was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was really funny, and overall a solid movie.
I'm a big Miguel Arteta fan so I can't wait for this... but the trailers don't look all that great, and I've heard rumors that Cera and Arteta were unhappy with having to remove a few scenes they shot.
Now I don't want to sound like an asshole about this... but is it me? Or does this Micheal Cera guy do nothing but play Micheal Cera? How many times can they repackage the same character to us and we will bite?
And what's up with MTV not showing videos anymore? Anyone else notice that????
If Micheal Cera murdered anymore parts by playing himself he would have to register as a citizen of detroit!
