In case you’re studying up on how to be a tattoo artist/lawyer that sues only movie studios, you’ll be interest to hear that The Hangover Part II face tattoo case got thrown out of court this morning. A judge in St. Louis determined that Mike Tyson’s tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill cannot file an injunction against Warner Bros for using his ink in the upcoming film, nor could he delay the movie’s release. Our suggestion that they Photoshop Ed Helm‘s face out of the film and replace it with another, even more manic Ken Jeong was met with silence.
“We are very gratified by the Court’s decision which will allow the highly anticipated film,Ã‚Â The Hangover Part II to be released on schedule this week around the world,” Warner Bros said in a statement. “Plaintiff’s failed attempt to enjoin the film in order to try and extract a massive settlement payment from Warner Bros. was highly inappropriate and unwarranted.” Other insane lawsuits dismissed today included an injunction against the Hangover Part II monkey for stealing her act from the monkey on Friends, and an injunction against Ed Helms filed by Jason Sudeikis, for making our mom think they were the same person until she saw them both on SNL. They do look alike, Mom!
