Liam Neeson's 'Hangover 2' cameo cut, replaced by Nick Cassavetes




If you're still wondering why trailers of The Hangover Part II were yanked from theaters recently, you'll just have to continue wondering. If you were expecting to see Liam Neeson play a cameo role in the film, well, too bad about that, too.

Variety says Neeson -- who took over the role of a Bangkok tattoo artist after cast members complained about Mel Gibson getting the part -- has been removed from the film after director Todd Phillips decided to do reshoots. Neeson wasn't available then, since he was shooting the sequel to Clash of the Titans, so Notebook director Nick Cassavetes stepped up.

"We were in a complete time crunch so I called up Nick and asked if he would do the part," Phillips said. "He came in and crushed it and that is the scene that you will ultimately see in the film. (I'm excited for everyone) to see the film. It turned out great." So great, Warner Bros. was afraid to advertise it to you!
