    Mad Mel Won't Be Hungover

    There goes our chance to either laugh or groan at Mel Gibson in The Hangover 2.

    TMZ reports his cameo's been axed thanks to the cast being perturbed at the prospects of mugging onscreen next to the controversial actor/director. Essentially, this confirms speculation arisen days ago (from a Vulture article) of co-star Zach Galifianakis being unhappy with the decision to include Gibson in the first place.

    So director Todd Phillips throws up an "I really wanted Gibson, but I don’t want to piss off the guys" statement to the press and here we are.

    Gibson's certainly an ass. But I'm curious if the cast/crew had problems bullshitting on set with living saint Mike Tyson? On the other hand, Phillips should have damn-well known throwing Gibson in the mix would upset someone working on the sequel. Thus neither side looks particularly good. But it's for the best anyway. The whole deal sounded stupid.

    Mel Gibson won't be hungover? that's a first.

    I agree with Jamie that it's BS that no one was up in arms that Tyson was in the first movie. If anything he's gotten a huge free pass after biting off someone's ear and being convicted or rape. Both things are waaay worse than Mel saying some derogatory remarks. Not saying Mel deserves a comeback but it's a idiotic double standard.

    I just hope the film has a good script. Going to be hard to top the first one.

    Unfortunately Tyson has been getting a pass for a long time among those in the Entertainment business and from fans.

    Gotta love hypocrisy

    Thank you for mentioning Tyson getting a pass. It's BS! Oh just because Mel's problems are more recent their worst. I thought The Hangover was overrated anyway. Funny but overrated.
