He's faced a 'Bubble Boy,' gone 'Into the Wild,' had a 'Hangover' and dealt with mental illness in 'It's Kind of a Funny Story.' Now Zach Galifianakis is considering some time as a cop -- a deadly, or rather, dead cop in the Universal Pictures' adaptation of Peter Lenkov's Dark Horse comic, 'R.I.P.D.'

According to the L.A. Times' 24 Frames, Galifianakis is currently in negotiations to co-star alongside Ryan Reynolds in the long-gestating film about how the dead fight post-life crime. An acronym for "Rest in Peace Department," 'R.I.P.D.' follows a murdered cop (Reynolds) who agrees to serve with the otherworldly police force for 100 years, if they help him find his killer. Should Galifianakis sign on the dotted line, he'll play the cop's partner, a former gunslinger.
