'Hangover' Ax Burns Mel Gibson

New York Post: "Mel Gibson is furious at producers of "The Hangover Part II" for booting him from the flick, sources say. Gibson's minor role as a Bangkok tattoo artist was seen as a comeback for his tattered career, but producers were quick to cut him loose when cast members objected to working with him."

The story is too old to be commented.

Tattoo Artist...oh man! lol

Anyways, hopefully he doesn't make a big deal about this because only he will end up losing. He needs to calm down and let it slide, I know its hard and I know it was a messed up decision, but its the best option. He flames them and makes a huge deal, more problems will arise, and people will join the side of the Hangover only making his life harder. Just let it go Mel, there are plenty of other movies to be apart of.

Unfortunately at this point, Gibson is going to make a big deal out of everything. You're right, if he makes this a bigger deal than it is, then no one in their right mind is going to want to cast him. His best option here is to calm down, work on that image, and look for another film to jump on.

Based on what his agent said he isnt going to make a huge deal out of it yet and doesnt plan to. All he said was gibson was upset he got put out of the role for his wrong doing, then someone equally as bad gets the shot. I think right now its mostly the media blowing things out of context.

darklordzor2232d ago

Oh...Mel Gibson. Why? I can understand that this role (even this small cameo) would have done much to reboot his career and paint him in a better light. But acting like a kid over it now, is pointless. I hate seeing him having to resort to this sort of thing, it's been a hard fall for him.

Soldierone2232d ago

Yeah and the media loves when stars fall, easy hits for news sites. So of course they want him to stay down.

darklordzor2232d ago

Yeah, and that's the saddest part about it. Although, in this instance, Gibson has been digging his own holes. Maybe he should just go back to directing and focus on that. He does a good job with them, so jump back in that saddle instead.

Soldierone2232d ago

yeah he is a great director, but he should keep acting while he has the pretty face and is capable of doing so. Once he gets older he can always fall back on directing, since thats a talent that lives with you. Being on camera when you age is alot harder.

darklordzor2232d ago

Oh don't get me wrong, I love him as an actor, and would really enjoy seeing him in other films. But as far as trying to revitalize his career I say focus on the directing for a bit, get back in some good graces.

Soldierone2232d ago

Well he is nearing an older age in his career, so he cant really sit back and let it go for a bit. I think acting on screen is going to get him better known faster and more welcomed, than if he directs a film. Both will have positive effects, but acting is going to do things much faster.

darklordzor2232d ago

The problem with jumping back into acting is exactly what he encountered here...who's going to give him that chance again? Hell at this point, I doubt he'd make it to a cameo in the next Mad Max.

Soldierone2232d ago

Well he was just recently in a few films that he did well in. If people are gonna give Lindsay Lohan a chance, he will without a doubt. I give him maybe a year before we start seeing him appear in things again.

darklordzor2232d ago

Ugh...I don't think they should give her another chance. But that's just me, and the fact of that matter is she's far younger and has the ability to give things some time. Gibson needs to get on it, like you mentioned. I hope he gets back on his feet, but if not, he shouldn't bitch and complain about it, but think of the other avenues of success he could pursue.
