Mel Gibson: No 'Hangover 2' Appearance
Mel Gibson will not appear in The Hangover 2 after all.
The 54-year-old actor was reportedly set to portray a tattoo artist in the second installment of the Hangover story.
“I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of [Warner Brothers Pictures president] Jeff Robinov and his team,” director Todd Phillips said (via Deadline). “But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew.”
