Mel Gibson won't be appearing in The Hangover Part II, despite web rumors he'd play a tattoo artist in the Todd Phillips-directed pic. Warner Bros and its financing partner Legendary Pictures released a statement from Phillips.As a member of the tribe, I am glad that they dropped the anti-Semitic actor from the cast. It's for the best.
"I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew," Phillips said.
