Mel Gibson to cameo in Hangover 2?

Tarnished Aussie appearing as tattoo artist

Mr Mel Gibson - of alleged internet-leaked phone-swearing and Forever Young fame - has signed up to pop up in Todd Phillips' follow-up to his break-out Vegas booze-com.

According to Page Six, the short-tempered star of anti-semitic controversy and Air America will pop up as a possibly deranged tattoo artist. Gibson is due to shoot his scenes on-set in Bangkok in the next couple of weeks.

The sequel is set in the US and Thailand, with all the key players returning.

Phillips' original featured a cameo from another star with a tainted image - Mike Tyson.

But while Tyson just had to basically act like his lovable, frightening self in a loose-fitting white shirt, Gibson is faced with somehow igniting an all-out career reinvention.

The crawl-back starts here...


Eager to see Mr Mel back where he belongs? Or do you you think he's a bullying dollop of carbon who deserves to be left in a small, dark, featureless room forever?

 

In cinemas this month...

      Didn't he already have a cameo as a tattoo artist in Ivan Reitman's Father's Day?

      If this goes well we could see the Gibson sequel we're all waiting for "What Lady Boys Want!"

      I want to see Mel come back and make a c**p loada movies. Regardless of his personal life, it's his movies I enjoy. Whether he directs or acts, there's few of his movies that aren't bad-a*s entertainment!!!

      btw anyone think he'd make a good Saddam Hussain with that beard? With his love for a certain ethnic group of people, could be the best man for the job lol

      Personally i can't see The Hangover 2 being any good, the first film itself wasn't that great and it really didn't need a sequel. Although i will have to watch it to see Gibson's cameo.
