Liam Neeson Replaces Mel Gibson in ‘Hangover 2′
Looks like the cast members of The Hangover 2 have found a cure for their headache.
Variety reports that Liam Neeson has been tapped to replace Mel Gibson, who was ousted from the movie this week due to cast complaints, in a cameo for the currently filming sequel to the 2008 hit comedy The Hangover.
The 58-year-old Schindler’s List actor was invited to come aboard by Hangover star Bradley Cooper, who co-starred with Neeson in this year’s cinematic TV adaptation The A-Team. Neeson says of the offer,
“I just got a call to do a one day shoot on Hangover 2 as a tattooist in Thailand, and that’s all I know about it. I just laughed my leg off when I saw The Hangover, I was shooting in Berlin earlier this year and rented it on the hotel TV.”
Neeson flew out to the set of the film from his New York home on Thursday. The Irish-born actor will also be starring in the big-screen board game adaptation Battleship, along with “Rude Boy” singer Rihanna.
