Mel Gibson won’t be appearing in “The Hangover 2.”
And his pal Jodie Foster is gonna be so bummed.
Despite the fact that fighter Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist, starred in the first “Hangover,” Gibson, who hasn’t been convicted of anything in a court of law, is persona non grata for the sequel.
Reports this week leaked about the actor/director — now most famous for his foul-mouthed racist, misogynistic phone rants to his ex-girlfriend Oksana Gregorieva — would play a tattoo artist in the raucous comedy. But now comes news that … he won’t.
]]>Todd Phillips released by
Warner Bros that doesn’t really explain it:
“I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov
and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and
this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast
and crew,” Phillips said.
We have to wonder what this says about the future of Gibson’s career and Foster’s film “Beaver” starring Gibson as a wacky guy who thinks his beaver hand puppet is real. Will any studio release it now?
