Mike Tyson is a better human being than Mel Gibson apparently, will be returning for The Hangover 2

10.28.2010

There's some weird hypocrisy happening with THE HANGOVER 2 (officially called THE HANGOVER: PART II, according to director Todd Phillips). In an interview with Details, the raunchy comic director reveals that former boxer, convicted rapist, and all-around interesting individual Mike Tyson will be returning for the film's much-discussed sequel.

For those of you in the cheap seats, Mel Gibson was originally scheduled to take part in a very small cameo for the film. Then came the news that Zach Galifianakis was all up in arms about said cameo, and so Gibson got the boot and was promptly replaced by actor Liam Neeson.

Now, Phillips is saying that Tyson, the very example used by many to point out the screwy hypocrisy in dumping Gibson in the first place, will be returning for the sequel. And you know what's funny? Tyson giving a reasonable and well-worded response about how he would've "100 percent" worked with the racially insensitive actor. Per the New York Post:

"I'm not going to ever in my life point my finger at anyone. I don't live in a glass house. None of us do. I work with anybody, as long as they're respectful."

Phillips also spilled some information on the aforementioned Neeson cameo (the one that would've been Gibson's) which will reportedly be that of a tattoo artist. Don't expect a lot of yucks:

"The scene is not maybe what you’d expect in 'The Hangover.' 'The Hangover 2' will be an epic comedy, but not every scene, just like the first one, is full of comedy. This had a little bit of gravity to it and I thought that both guys really could add that gravity and that is where were at."

God, seriously, what's the point then?

THE HANGOVER: PART II is currently filming and will open May 26, 2011.

Me and about four of my friends are already boycotting this movie. As long as Zack Galafinakis is involved with the project, I'm not seeing it. Allowing a convicted rapist (Tyson) to work on the Hangover 2, but blackballing Mel Gibson from the project is hypercrytical and asinine!

Tyson as himself

getting his ass kissed is okay. But Mel as a crazy Bangkok tattooist is not. Whatever you think of Mad Mel you gotta admit it is a bit strange? I will see the movie anyway, the first one is good and Zack is still funny as hell!

Tyson is right

And when did that fat asshole Zach Galifianakis become such a big name that he could black ball "MEL GIBSON" who's a Hollywood legend, and one of the best film makers of last decade!?

I know Mel made some bone headed comments out of anger but like Mike Tyson said he doesn't live in a glass house, and neither should Zach Galifianakis... You know I don't like what Mel said being that I am a minority but you know what just because he said something out of anger to someone in a private

You know I don't like what Mel said being that I am a minority but you know what just because he said something out of anger to someone in a private conversation should not be reason enough to completely shit on the man's entire life.

Doesn't everyone deserve another chance? I mean it's not like Mel raped anyone or killed someone. Mike Tyson raped someone, and it's ok to have him on the movie? hmm this is more because of the Jewish remarks made by Mel years ago since Zach is Jewish that he's done this to MEL... Either way I wasn't all that big of a fan of the first movie I actually didn't find it very funny myself, and probably will not watch the sequel regardless of who's in it, and if I do watch the movie it won't be in theaters.

Zach isn't Jewish, he's Greek Orthodox. You're like the fifth person in here I've seen claim this. If you're going to go out of your way to shit on someone, do some research first. -1

I wish people would also realize the difference between religion and nationality. Greek Orthodox is NOT a nationality. His last name is only ONE HALF of what his blood line is. Although his last name is Greek, word around the campfire is that he is also Jewish.

Couple of Things:

1)Like I said before, Mel needs to take time to get some help on whatever it is that's going on with him. The cameo would only exacerbate his bad image, and it would just come off as exploitative.
2)I loved this movie, but NOTHING about it necessitates a sequel. Period.

Exactly, the difference between Mike and Mel getting roles isn't what they've done in the past, but that one is stable at the moment and other isn't.

Yeah...

this probably sounds bad, but I still like both these guys. In Mel's case, I think most people on this planet are a bit racist, and Mel's no different. I think Mike got a raw deal on that rape charge. The woman came to his hotel room at 3 in the morning, expecting a friendly game of scategories or some shit. In the end, Mike went to jail, and she got paid. Mission accomplished.
I would have liked to a see a scene with Mike and Mel. Oh well.

Stupid. Just stupid.

There's absolutely no reason why Tyson should be brought back for the sequel; cameos are only funny once.

They could have avoided the hypocrisy accusations but they went out of their way to make them legit.

Does anyone remember the weird crap Tyson was talking just 10 years ago. at least Mel wasn't planning on eating anyone elses children. Plus the hangover is about doing drugs and getting loaded, it doesn't cast women in a great light either. But I guess it's picking and choosing when to be pc.

Not seeing this now.

Mike and Mel are both fuckheads that should be shunned from normal society. Instead they are making more money in a year than most good, hardworking people will make in their entire life.

It's scary to me how a lot of my fellow Mel bashers in here are actually defending Mike's 2nd cameo. Why? What's the fucking difference? Because his horrific past behavior isn't as fresh in our minds? Because he's "paid his debt to society?" Fuck that. That's just more fanboy shit being pulled from a

That's just more fanboy shit being pulled from a different ass because now YOU, and apparently your interchangeable morals, are going to be personally affected somehow. If someone beat's someone else that's defenseless, or if they FUCKING RAPE someone, their BROKEN ass is wrong in my book long after they're dead, no matter what their life history may be, or even if they've "paid their debt."

Why must we latch onto & defend these people like they're Gods? Looking the other way due to celebrity worship, or just so we can be entertained & escape our own humdrumery for a moment is fucking pathetic, and is just a part of the fucked up whole that's wrong with this planet.

Oh, and fuck you, Mike. I'm FAR from perfect, but I'll point my finger all day long at shitty abusers like you.

Also, who's heard anything from Mel lately? He hasn't said too much about what's been happening, and it's entirely possible that he's actually gone batshit insane since Beaver was filmed. Phillips saying that he's willing to work with somebody doesn't say much about their mental health. The guy got GG Allin out of jail to work with him.

Has anybody considered that maybe the cast just didn't think Gibson would be right for the part? Maybe the jokes written for him just sucked and were tossed in at the last moment to cash in the whole Gibson craze, and it has nothing to do with how they think of him personally. For all we know, the script had him blatantly making fun of himself. Maybe the distinction between him and Tyson is that Tyson's role in the film is funny, and Gibson's wouldn't have been.

Mike Tyson did time in prison and paid his debt to society, not to mention that all of his altercations were more than 15 years ago. Mel Gibson's current situation isn't even more than 9 months old. Also, Tyson was in the first one, why wouldn't he be in the sequel? To me it just looks like Ari Gold did his job.

There is a big difference between Gibson and Tyson. Gibson hasn't done anything illegal. At worst he is an asshole. Tyson has physically harmed many innocent people. Rape is the worst things one human can do to another aside from murder, and Tyson did just this (among many other horrible deeds throughout the years). At best Tyson is criminal trash who got off way too easy. Gibson deserves a chance to redeem himself (if not, who gives a shit, right). Tyson belongs behind bars. Tyson has done

Tyson has done this whole "I've paid my debt and am a different person now" dance before. The man is scum.

Galifianakis did what he did because he thinks it makes headlines. It's not because of some skewed sense of morality, it's because it'll get people to talk about him.

We are all a little F-up.

When are people going to stop holding celebrities up to this light and thinking they have to be this perfect being of genuine graciousness and rose lit puppies. Everyone has character flaws. EVERYONE. Gibson is a racist with a bad temper. Tyson is a convicted rapist (who incidently did the first movie to fund a coke habit that he has since kicked, he admitted this in a recent interview). None of this has anything to with the work they do!!!! Grow up. Everyone has something they want to

Rock Hudson, sex symbol of a generation, made women weak in the knees with the wink of an eye. GAY! Anything wrong with this? No. The people got to enjoy the fantasy, and everyone who made it got paid.

Watch the movie if you want. Enjoy it for what it is. And leave these people alone!!! Let them screw up there lives anyway they want. It's sad to me that we think reporting these stories is news. Get over it, most of them are pricks anyway.

I do give credit to Zack G. for showing some backbone though.

This is beyond disturbing...

So rape, beating women, assaulting innocent people in a fit of road rage, and biting off someone's ear is somehow better than drunkenly saying a few offensive one-liners about minorities? It is fucking scary that people think like this.

First, I still love Mel Gibson but I don't blame people for not wanting to work with him right now. I could see that making people uncomfortable. BUT...

The difference between Mel Gibson and Mike Tyson is Mike served time, paid the price and apologized for something that happened a long time ago. This whole thing with Mel Gibson JUST happened and he hasn't really done shit about rectifying it. Do you really think anyone would work with Tyson right when he got into all of that trouble?

My two cents....

While Tyson was pretty funny in the first, I was hoping for Mel to get a cameo, even if he was playing himself or a character.

Everybody deserves a second chance and forgiveness, for an actor to refuse to work with someone over something stupid they said intoxicated is wrong. I think Zach would be a cool guy to hang out with but on the other hand refusing to work with someone because they made a mistake is another.

Sure, this isn't the second time Gibson hasn't said something racist or

Sure, this isn't the second time Gibson hasn't said something racist or sexist, but at the same time, he hasn't raped a woman or committed a spree of murders or whatever. Downey Jr. use to be a hardcore drug addict but he cleaned up and sobered up. Gibson seems to be getting his shit back together but yet Zach can't work with him?

This is the problem with Hollywood is egotism. People become too arrogant, too inflated, too difficult to work with, and have too many ideas. Premadonnas really.

While I'll continue to see this and more Zach, Gibson, and Todd Phillips' movies, I think one needs to learn to cast stones at himself before casting stones at others.

I'm not against Mel being in movies anymore. In fact I am pretty anxious to see The Beaver. The thing with the role Mel was suppose to play is that Mel basically got the role for his recent shit he got himself into. Now Tyson has been a changed man for quite some time. Yes he is a convicted rapist, but how long ago was that? He has owned up to his mistakes and moved on from it. Gibson's ordeal is still fresh and he hasn't owned up to his actions at all yet. I can see why Zach would be upset

The difference? Tyson will tell you he fucked up, Gibson will not.

This outcrying of support for Mel Gibson and subsequent newfound hate for Zach Galifianakis is absolutely ridiculous. He didn't banish Gibson from the movie industry, he didn't do anything except for voice complaints about working with someone he doesn't want to work with. Actors and directors do this ALL THE TIME. Directors get fired from projects because actors don't want them, and studios of course back the A-Lister. It happened recently with DiCaprio getting Antoine Fuqua off a project

Directors get fired from projects because actors don't want them, and studios of course back the A-Lister. It happened recently with DiCaprio getting Antoine Fuqua off a project called "Prisoners". Does that mean Leonardo DiCaprio is a "hypocritical asshole that you no longer have any respect for"? Zach (and from what seems to be the case, the rest of the cast too) didn't want him in THEIR MOVIE. THAT THEY MADE FAMOUS. They are the draw. They have a right to object to someone they don't want to work with. Unfortunately for them, they already signed contracts to do the Hangover II a long time ago, and were left NO OPTIONS about working with Gibson.

Now I'm not saying Mike Tyson is a model citizen by any means, but clearly the principal cast doesn't have the same problem with Tyson as they do Gibson. And neither do I for that matter. Gibson's faux pax is still fresh in everyone's mind. He's literally the most unlikable celebrity on the planet, except on this board apparently.

Finally, WHO CARES ABOUT MEL GIBSON? His last movie NOBODY SAW, and the one before that, most people here have probably never even heard of. You literally have go back EIGHT YEARS to find a Mel Gibson project that made any type of domestic profit. I find him to be an incredibly talented director, and to this day will see any film he directs, but losing him in what sounds like a nothing-cameo for GOOD REASON is the least reason for an uproar I've ever heard.

There's a difference in an A-list actor wanting to work with a specific director for creative differences; and an actor voicing his displeasure with someone while he works on set with a convicted rapist. Zach Galifanakis to me, is a hypocritical bastard and I can't respect the guy anymore. I don't have some insane love for Mel Gibson, nor am I even defending him.

GIBSON is in.

Not that I expect this to ever receive attention, but Gibson never got booted from the Hangover sequel... sorry, didn't happen. It's just some bloody glove for the movie-lovin' masses.

Gibson is still in. Incognito like.

Zach Galifinakis is a hypocritical asshole that I no longer have any respect for.

My green bar is for Tyson being a stand-up dude about the situation.

How? Or is being a rapist and very violent man make you a good person?

I am not all hard up for Gibson either, but this does shriek of hypocrisy and stupidity.

At this point in time I would definitely agree that Tyson is a better person. Tyson has turned himself around. Gibson hasn't done shit for forgiveness. I really don't even care at this point though.

In Iron Mike's Defense

Tyson has raped women of every creed and color. He even raped Peter McNeely on live TV, so he's not a homophobe either like Mel.

Plus, he served time in prison for his crimes. Gibson is walking around unpunished like O.J. Simpson.

From what I can tell, Gibson hasn't been tried or found guilty of any crime just yet, so I'm not sure how you can compare him to OJ Simpson. We judging people according to internet reports and leaked phone calls now?

JoBlo, OJ wasn't found guilty either until the second trial. Does that mean he really didn't do it until he was actually found guilty the second time? And I certainly do make judgments according to internet reports, mostly your own websites reports.

It's just dumb gossip anyway. No "official" statement from anyone on what the whole Mel Gibson thing was really about exists. There are countless unknown factors. We're just assuming the most entertaining conclusions. So how about you just get back to real movie news, JoBlo, leave the celebrity gossip for the Sun, and maybe I'll stop trolling for reactions.

The more I hear about this movie, the less interested I get. Don't really care about the cameos, it was the 3 relatively new leads (Cooper, Helms, and Galafinakis) that made this a success. If the leads were Stiller, Farrell, and Vaughn it wouldn't have made 1/2 as much.

I'd rather take Tyson in the movie and a happy Zach G, then a Gibson cameo and a unhappy Zach G. I don't care if I get thumbs down, I back Zach 110% for what he did. Gibson lovers need to get over themselves.
