After Mel Gibson was given the boot from his cameo role in The Hangover 2, Varietyis reporting that Liam Neeson stepped in to play the tattoo artist in Thailand. I like Neeson, and he’ll probably do a good job, but the whole Gibson thing is still annoying.
Neeson says he was invited to take the cameo role via his “A-Team” co-star Bradley Cooper, who stars in “The Hangover Part II” along with Zack Galifianakis.
“I just got a call to do a one day shoot on ‘Hangover 2’ as a tattooist in Thailand, and that’s all I know about it,” Neeson told Daily Variety. “I just laughed my leg off when I saw ‘The Hangover, I was shooting in Berlin earlier this year and rented it on the hotel TV.”
Neeson flew out to the set Thursday from his home in New York and filmed his seen Sunday.
The Hangover 2 is set for release on May 26.
