According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is now facing a The Hangover Part II lawsuit filed by a stuntman who allegedly suffered “significant brain injuries” during a stunt on the movie’s set in Bangkok. Stunt actor Scott McLean was doubling for Ed Helms in a car chase sequence, when the car he was riding in was hit by another vehicle that skidded out of control. And here we thought the most horrible part of that movie was seeing that poor monkey nibbling on a severed finger. That’s still a close second!
According to McLean’s lawsuit, it was allegedly the movie’s stunt coordinator Russell Solberg who made the decision that lead to the crash. “Solberg commanded to the driver of the automobile in which plaintiff Scott McLean was a passenger, that the speed of his vehicle be increased significantly to a speed unsafe for the stunt, thus resulting in a major collision,” the suit claims. McLean subsequently had to be airlifted to Australia and has been there ever since recuperating from what his rep says are “likely permanent brain and physical injuries.” This whole sad incident sure makes the whole Mike Tyson tattoo lawsuit look really stupid. Like, even stupider than it already looked.
