This Guy Makes Over $250,000 a Year By Impersonating Alan from ‘The Hangover’


This Guy Makes Over $250,000 a Year By Impersonating Alan from ‘The Hangover’

Thaddeus Kalinoski was a regular guy until his life was turned upside down. Within a few weeks he lost his job as a restaurant manager, and then his wife left him. According to reports, Thaddues started developing a drinking problem and bad food habits.


It was a few weeks later that he discovered looked just like Zach Galifianakis’ character from The Hangover trilogy.

Now, the former restaurant manager earns $250,000 a year walking down the streets of Las Vegas and partying alongside celebrities and beautiful women.

Thaddeus has invested everything into living and breathing the crazy ‘Leader Of The Wolfpack’ for four years. His mimicry of Alan is so impressive that casting bosses hired him as a double in The Hangover III.

The only downside to his new life is that there are no scheduled Hangover sequels – and perhaps even worse, that Galifianakis has lost weight in real life by quitting alcohol.

So, if anyone ever tells you that you can’t make money as a stand-in or photo double, tell them the story behind Thaddeus Kalinoski, The Hangover photo-double-millionaire.
