Todd Phillips, director of The Hangover 2, is reporting disappointing news for fans hoping that The Hangover 2 would bring us a Mel Gibson comeback.
According to the director, Mel Gibson’s cameo as a tattoo artist in the film has been dropped.
Reason? Obviously from the statement given by Phillips, someone within the cast and crew [or more than one someone], doesn’t want Gibson in the film.
“I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team,” said Phillips in a statement released by the studio, “But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew,” says Phillips.
But should the opinions of a film’s cast and crew be reason enough to drop an actor if they will bring fans to the theaters and laughs to the screen?
