Gossip: Mel Gibson

The producers of The Hangover Part II had initially offered Gibson a minor role, but they reneged on the offer. 

Mel Gibson is fuming after he was booted from a cameo role in an upcoming film, said the New York Post. The producers of The Hangover Part II had initially offered Gibson a minor role as a Bangkok tattoo artist, but then reneged on the offer when the rest of the cast refused to work with him. A source close to Gibson says he’d hoped the role would be the first step in a comeback for a career that’s now in ashes, after his highly publicized battle with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who alleges he punched and threatened her. “He doesn’t understand why Mike Tyson, a drug abuser, was given a second chance [in the first Hangover film] while he was kicked to the curb,” says a friend of Gibson’s.
