Loser: Mel Gibson
Winner: Liam Neeson
Galling as it may be to be offered a job only to have it withdrawn, if you were hoping said job was going redeem your image as a rage-filled misogynist, you probably should react as calmly as possible. Nevertheless,
Mel Gibson was "furious" that his cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist in
The Hangover Part II was rescinded after his casting led the movie's cast and crew to protest, according to recent reports. The franchise's star Zach Galifianakis is believed to have led the opposition since shortly before Gibson was nixed, he said on an episode of
Scott Aukerman's "Comedy Death-Ray" that he was "in a deep protest right now with a movie I'm working on, up in arms about something." Irish-born actor Liam Neeson will now take on the part, proving that sometimes, nice guys do finish first.
