As we learned last week, Mel Gibson was served another reason to be angry when Warner Bros. and director Todd Phillips reneged on their decision to give the struggling actor a cameo in 'The Hangover 2.' Gibson was to play a Bangkok tattoo artist in the film, getting the bad-guy cameo gig that Mike Tyson filled in the first. But while Phillips had "the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team" on the decision to include Gibson, the cast were angry and Gibson subsequently lost the gig. Some rumors rest it at the feet of star Zach Galifianakis, who admitted to being in "deep protest" over one of his upcoming film projects.
Though there are no angry voicemails to confirm it, the New York Post now reports that Gibson is "furious" over getting booted from 'The Hangover 2.' Their sources claim that "He doesn't understand why Mike Tyson, a drug user who turned his life around, was given a chance while Mel was kicked to the curb. Everybody deserves a second chance."
So why does Tyson get one and Gibson does not?
