The Hangover, Part II: Stopped by a Tattoo?

The Hangover Part II - Ed Helms

The Hangover, Part II is set to open in theaters this weekend… or, is it? One thing may still delay the opening -- Mike Tyson’s facial tattoo.

More specifically, the fact that Ed Helms is wearing it in the flick (or, something that looks a lot like it). The tattoo artist who originally put the ink on Tyson’s face is suing Warner Bros. for copyright violation. S. Victor Whitmill, the artist behind the suit, is also asking for an injuction which would block the film’s May 26 release.

Former President Bill Clinton Cast in Hangover 2

President Bill Clinton

UPDATE: You can see pictures of Clinton on the set here.

If you thought Mel Gibson's hiring -- then firing -- would be The Hangover 2's biggest casting news, you would be wrong.

Turns out there's another guy who could possibly generate more buzz than the beleaguered actor: former President Bill Clinton.

According to People, Clinton filmed a brief cameo in the comedy sequel over the weekend. An aide to the former POTUS -- who was already in Bangkok, Thailand talking about clean energy -- says he appeared as himself.

No other details about Clinton's guest stint were revealed.

The Hangover 2 is scheduled for release on May 26, 2011.

Mike Tyson to Appear in Hangover 2

Hangover 2 director Todd Phillips spilled a few juicy details from the set of the movie -- and the one we’re most excited about is Mike Tyson.

The iconic boxer will appear in the sequel for another cameo, though whether he’ll punch Zack Galifianakis again remains a mystery.

In a recent interview, Phillips said was undisturbed by Tyson's comments that he used his Hangover money to buy drugs. "I love that quote!" he cried.

Liam Neeson Takes Over Mel Gibson’s Hangover 2 Cameo

Liam Neeson has been selected to take over the tattoo artist role in Hangover 2, a cameo originally given to Mel Gibson. When some members of the cast and crew protested to Gibon’s participation in the film, a rep for both actors quickly swapped the one for the other.

The rep joked that Neeson would join the film “pending clearance of cast and crew background check.” Apparently, the Irish actor passed the test because TMZ is reporting that Neeson arrived in L.A. Saturday to begin working on the film.

Mel Gibson Loses His Hangover (Role)

Mel Gibson

It appears Hollywood is not yet ready to forgive and forget when it comes to Mel Gibson.

Earlier this week, we wondered whether audiences would welcome a cameo from Mel in The Hangover Part II. Unfortunately, we'll never know the answer.

Although someone had tapped the Oscar winner to play a tattoo artist in the comedy, the casting decision was not embraced by all those involved. On Thursday, Warner Bros. issued a press releasing announcing Gibson's dismissal from the project.

Mel Gibson to Appear in The Hangover 2

The Hangover 2 has nabbed a huge star to perform a cameo that could rival Mike Tyson’s Hangover appearance.

Mel Gibson will be appearing in the sequel, though not as himself. Gibson will be playing some sort of over-the-top character in the film. Sources say he's been cast as a tattoo artist in Bangkok.

Mel's cameo raises a lot of questions: How many of his own well-publicized personal problems will be openly mocked in the film … and how will audiences react? Unfortunately, we will have to wait until May 26 to find out.

The Hangover 2: Who Isn’t Returning?

We’ve got it on good authority that the main cast of The Hangover will reunite in the sequel…all except for one.

Don’t worry - Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper are definitely returning. Justin Bartha, the film’s hapless groom, and Ed Helms (the dentist) are also coming back. Even Ken Jeong (whose scene-stealing moment lives in movie infamy) and the film's bride, Sasha Barrese, will reprise their roles. So, who are we missing?
