Mel Gibson is Joining The Hangover Sequel

Mel Gibson is Joining The Hangover Sequel

It was only a matter of time before news would arrive of Mel Gibson embarking on a damage control exercise of sorts.

The Playlist are reporting that Mad Mel (attempting to douse the fire of the Hollywood bridges he’s burned) will make a cameo appearance in the sequel to The Hangover.

A source has told the New York Post that “Mel will make a cameo as a tattoo artist” and that he’s expected to film his role in two weeks before the gang head off for location work in Bangkok.

This sounds like a strategic move to gently win back respect from the movie-going public, and what better way to do this than by placing the Lethal Weapon star in the middle of a trio of much-loved comic characters to act against. After all, it worked for Iron Mike!

His starring role in Jodie Foster’s third directorial effort (dark comedy The Beaver) has yet to see the light of day and both Foster and the studio behind the film must be eager to get to the point where they feel confident it can be released without the personal life of the lead affecting the box office revenue.

Mild-mannered civilian by day, passionate cinephile and dedicated blogger at night, my obsession began with seeing the image of Luke staring wistfully at the two stars of Tatooine, and 30-plus years later, that love have never wavered.

    Wasn’t he rumoured to be reteaming with Shane Black for Cold Warrior? Now that I’d be interested in. A fleeting cameo in The Hangover 2 won’t resurrect his career, but it may do some Tom Cruise-type damage control.

    Mel Gibson. In a movie called The Hangover. Poor taste.
    That’s like putting David Hasselhoff in a McDonald’s advertisement selling burgers.
    His agent should be shot!
