Mel Gibson has signed on to cameo in “The Hangover 2” for Warner Bros. PIctures says Page Six.
The story follows the guys who head out on a trip to Thailand with a dangerous stop in Bangkok where they encounter Gibson’s character.
A source says “It’s a done deal. Mel will make a cameo as a tattoo artist. Filming is taking place 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.”
Much like Mike Tyson in the first film or Tom Cruise in “Tropic Thunder”, it’s hoped the role will help reinvent the image of the troubled star.
