Mel Gibson Gets The Axe From Hangover 2

|

Not literally, of course. Giving him a sharp instrument at this point would probably be a mistake. But it looks like Mel Gibson’s cameo in The Hangover 2 has been cut. In related news, the list of people Mel would like to put in his rose garden has probably just gotten longer.

“I thought Mel would have been great in the movie,” said director Todd Phillips in a statement, “But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and the decision ultimately did not have the full support of the entire cast and crew.” Is this is the same cast and crew who were fine working with convicted felon Mike Tyson in the original? Maybe Mel is in worse shape than we thought.

We can’t be sure, but we’re fairly certain that Mel’s inclusion in the blockbuster’s sequel was what had star Zach Galifianakis so furious. Our advice to the cast and crew? Change your phone numbers. What do you think of the controversial casting move?
