Remember the Mel Gibson role in Hangover 2 that was taken from him and given to Liam Neeson? Â The cast of the film refused to work with Gibson, but it seems like Neeson hasn’t really worked out, either. Â The director of the film wasn’t happy with the way Neeson’s scenes turned out, but the actor was not available for a reshoot because he’s now busy filming another project.
So the role had to be given to another actorâ€¦ Nick Cassavetes. Â If this doesn’t work out, then who knows who will get it next – Javier Bardem is a bit young, but he could make it work in a pinch.
Well, the bubble is finally starting to burst for Mel Gibson, who up until recently could still fall back on the success of his acting career, but even money-hungry Hollywood production houses are no longer willing to risk upsetting people by hiring an abusive, bigoted rageaholic. Â It seems that the cameo role that was offered to Gibson in Hangover 2 has now been snatched away and given to Liam Neeson instead.
Producers claim that many cast and crew members complained about the choice of Gibson, and some flat-out refused to work with him. Â Gibson says he doesn’t understand why Mike Tyson was given a second chance while ol’ Mel remains in the dog house. Â Um, maybe it’s because Tyson repented for his behavior and turned his life around instead of blaming everyone else, threatening people, and flying off on anti-semitic rants? Â Just a guess.
