Hangover 2 role being passed around

Remember the Mel Gibson role in Hangover 2 that was taken from him and given to Liam Neeson?  The cast of the film refused to work with Gibson, but it seems like Neeson hasn’t really worked out, either.  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 actor… Nick Cassavetes.  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.

Bill Clinton to up the celebrity ante for Hangover 2

This movie is becoming the most talked about film in ages in terms of who’s in, who’s out, and so forth.  The latest star to film a cameo for the comedy sequel?  Former President Bill Clinton, who flew all the way to Thailand so that he could shoot his scenes last weekend.  This may be the exact boost the movie needed so that people can finally let go of the Mel Gibson thing, since Gibson got fired from his cameo after the whole Oksanagate thing became a huge deal.

This is now shaping up to be a pretty great flick, what with the cast from the first Hangover, plus Liam Neeson and now Clinton.  It’ll be interesting to see if they try to get any other big names to come in and film cameos, though I think it doesn’t really get much bigger than having a former US President in the credits

Producers of Hangover 2 come to their senses, ditch Mel Gibson

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.  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.  Gibson says he doesn’t understand why Mike Tyson was given a second chance while ol’ Mel remains in the dog house.  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?  Just a guess.

Natasha Richardson’s Official Cause Of Death


The New York City medical examiner’s office concluded that Natasha Richardson died of blunt impact to the head.

The death was ruled an accident and the cause of death is listed as “epidural hematoma due to blunt impact to the head,” according to NYC medical examiner spokeswoman Ellen Borakove.

So tragic that a fall on a beginner ski hill could turn out this way. Snarkista has been a skier since age 5, and has never worn a helmet…but Natasha’s story may change her mind. Natasha was on the bunny slope, and Snarkista shreds the double diamonds.

Natasha will be remembered by family and friends in New York in the next couple of days. Her funeral arrangements are being arranged by the Greenwich Village Funeral Home. Rest In Peace.
