Thaddeus Kalinoski has been raking in the dough posing as Zach Galifianakis’ character Alan, from the Hangover movies. This doppelganger is so convincing, it’s actually ridiculous. After his wife left him in 2009, the 39 year old took off to Vegas to party… He didn’t end up coming back. His striking resemblance has turned out to be a very lucrative venture, where Kalinoski is able to make up to $900 a night ($240,000 annually) by pleasing tourists and onlookers with picture requests and other ‘fun’ activities. This man is committed, he’s even got the baby and tiger with him. SOLD!
Kalinoski told the Sun that he was really feeling the pressure to get ‘blacked-out’, by all the fans that it was really catching up to him. This man certainly knows how to party and the dangers that come with that…
“Playing Alan, everyone expects you to party, everyone expects you to drink. Whatever they have, and whatever is they want you to do for a tip, you better do it.
“People would give me full bottles of liquor before they hopped on their flights.
“I remember one night this caused me to blackout, falling into broken glass bottles, getting sliced open and I was robbed.”
“I remember I once got so drunk one night that I puked and defecated all over my costume in the Caesars valet lot and had to drive home naked.
“I was under so much pressure to do parties and was often pushed into rooms with groups of people telling me I had to do drugs. It got really desperate.”
