Mel Gibson was set to play a Bangkok tattoo artist in the new movie, “The Hangover 2″, but his cameo was canceled due to protests from the cast — mainly Zach Galifianakis.
Reportedly, the casting was good to go, until the word started spreading that Mel was going to be in the movie. Then, the cast got upset over the decision, after being edged on by friends.
Zach Galifianakis was said to be the loudest of the protesters, which subsequently got Mel canned from the role in the movie.
In a recent interview, he talked about an upcoming movie that he’s working on, saying that he doesn’t really have control over the movies he does. He said that when it comes to “a movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control - you just show up and vomit your lines out. I mean, I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to…I’m not making any leeway.”
When the interviewer mentions “The Hangover 2″. Zach stopped him and said, “It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah. I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”
