Despite there not being anything remotely funny about Mike Tyson’s appearance in the original Hangover film (he owns a tiger – how hillarious) the men behind the scenes have decided that celebrity cameos are the way forward in regards to their frankly unnecesarry sequel. Having roped in Mel Gibson (again has Gibson ever been funny?), Liam Neeson (again ….) and Paul Giamatti the filmmakers have now scooped a cameo appearance from former president Bill Clinton. If I was to pick four celebrities to make me laugh I have to say these guys would not be on the top of my list but a lot of humour can come from the situation and Extras proved that even the unlikiest of actors can prove to be hysterical when fed good and layered material.
Bill Clinton filmed a scene in Thailand along with Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper and the sequence apparently involved the three men jumping into a rickshaw. Like most sequels The Hangover 2 feels like it is going to be more gag based as opposed to drawing humour from the characters but we’ ll have to wait and see.
The film is set to be released on May 26th, 2011.
