Last week we speculated that Mel Gibson would probably be pretty upset after getting fired from The Hangover sequel and learning he would be replaced by Liam Neeson. We can now confirm that rage-a-holic Gibson is indeed flying off the handle as a result of the casting change.
A source for Gibson says that Mel “doesn’t understand why Mike Tyson, a drug user who turned his life around, was given a chance while [he] was kicked to the curb. Everybody deserves a second chance.” We’re guessingÃ‚Â that Tyson seemed less toxic and evil for two reasons: one, enough time has passed since his DUI and rape convictions that he seems less threatening, and two, his voice. Like, how can you stay mad at someone with that voice? It’s even cuter thanÃ‚Â David Beckham‘s voice.
Mel’s camp has a good point though, although we’ve come to the conclusion that basically everyone in Hollywood has made some kind of pact with the devil, so in terms of judging others for their wrongdoings, it’s six of one, half dozen of the other.
