Yes, the nodding meme guy is Robert Redford not Zach Galifianakis
This may be of some interest.
Large swaths of the internet were today years old when they learned the nodding GIF guy is actually Robert Redford.
The classic reaction GIF, which is generally used to convey approval, is sourced from the 1972 film Jeremiah Johnson, in which Redford plays the titular role. Turns out, though, a nonzero number of people thought the guy in the GIF was comedian Zach Galifianakis, who did not play the titular role in Jeremiah Johnson. (He was 3 years old when the movie was released.)
