Mel Gibson and a hangover, two things that are quite synonymous with one another. The New York Post, as credible a source as they are, is reporting that the BRAVEHEART actor/director has a cameo in the upcoming sequel to Todd Phillips’ 2009 hit comedy. According to their source “It’s a done deal. Mel will make a cameo as a tattoo artist. Filming is taking place on the Warner Bros. lot, where a Bangkok set has been built, and Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks. Then the production moves to Thailand at the end of October.”

Aside from being an Oscar winning-director and iconic actor, Gibson has not exactly been recognized recently for his talent. Rather, allegations of latent racism and physical/verbal assault against his ex-girlfriend have soiled his name in the presses. Not to mention that whole DUI incident in 2006.

As Hollywood is all-forgiving, a cameo showing the actor’s intentionally humorous side could be just what he needs to remove the built-up tarnish from his image. With that said, while this is currently just a rumor, it seems like a plausible power play by Gibson’s agent. Oh, that’s right…he was dropped from William Morris Endeavor agency in July. Maybe just his idea then.
