Mel Gibson IS NOT Joining "Hangover 2" Cast!  

So after all the reporting about Mel Gibson joining "The Hangover 2," it is now official that the embattled actor is not going to play a tattoo artist for the sequel. Why? Because cast and crew objected to Gibson joining the cast! Director Todd Phillips issued the following:

"I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew." we can just imagine Gibson trying to make fun of himself for the sequel. :sad

Mel Gibson is joining "The Hangover 2" cast as a Bangkok tattoo artist. the NY Post uncovered this delicious news, and MTV confirmed it with two unnamed sources.

But there's good and bad.

First, the good news about Gibson's participation. The embattled actor needs to revive his career and what better way to do that than to poke fun at himself (See Tom Cruise in "Tropic Thunder").

So essentially, Gibson will do a cameo for the film, much like Mike Tyson's memorable appearance in the first "Hangover." Speaking of, it's still unclear whether the former boxer will return for the sequel, but I hope he does.

Gibson will be shooting "on the Warner Bros. lot, where a Bangkok set has been built, and Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks. Then the production moves to Thailand at the end of October" according to a source of the NY Post.

And now, the bad. Heather Graham, who stole our and Ed Helms' hearts as a stripper with a heart of gold will not return! Why? Because her character is not needed! A Warner Bros. rep told E!: "Unfortunately, Heather won't be in the sequel -- the way the story unfolds doesn't allow any room for her character to show up... I don't want to reveal too much of the film, but once you see it you’ll understand."

Aw :sad

But at least Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, and Ken Jeong are all returning. And they're bringing Gibson with them.
