Mistaken For Strangers, one of the year’s best documentaries, tells the story not of its ostensible subject—excellent rock band The National—but of the relationship between brothers Matt and Tom Berninger, the former being the singer of that band. It’s a surprisingly emotional film, which makes it ripe for parody. This new Funny Or Die video posits a stage version of the doc starring Zach Galifianakis as Tom Berninger, the ne’er-do-well younger brother desperate for a taste of his brother’s fame, and Ted Danson as Matt Berninger, the handsome-but-volatile rock star. Will they learn some life lessons and come to understand each other better? Only Mistaken For Strangers: The Play can answer that question.
