Mel Gibson scores a cameo in 'The Hangover 2'
Mel Gibson won't let a little thing like domestic abuse charges or a reputation for racist and misogynist rants keep his movie career down. In fact, with a resume like that, he's perfect for the sequel to The Hangover, don't you think? Hollywood sure does.
The New York Post's Page Six says he's joining Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zack Galifianakis and Justin Bartha in a cameo role for part two, which is set in Thailand and will also feature Ken Jeong, reprising his role as Mr. Chow: "It's a done deal. Mel will make a cameo as a tattoo artist," a source told the Post. "Filming is taking place on the Warner Bros. lot, where a Bangkok set has been built, and Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks. Then the production moves to Thailand at the end of October."
There's no word on whether that role will poke fun at his current troubles -- racism and domestic abuse are just so hilarious, Hollywood thinks -- but it sounds better than his movie The Beaver. Even Jodie Foster has been smart enough to keep that one in the can until this mess blows over.
