Mel Gibson Lands Cameo in ‘The Hangover 2′

Mel Gibson’s strategy for getting back in the public’s good graces may involve a few laughs.

The Braveheart Oscar winner has been laying low while he deals with the legal hang-ups and backlash surrounding his bitter split wih baby mama Oksana Grigorieva, but now the star has landed a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a Bangkok tattoo artist.  

Sources tell the New York Post the appearance is a “done deal,” adding “Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks.”

Mike Tyson made a stab at a reputation recovery of his own before reshaping his image with a comedic cameo in the first Hangover, so fittingly, Mel Gibson is tasked with filling his shoes for the sequel.

Will you forgive Mel Gibson’s past problems if he makes you laugh in The Hangover 2?
