TMZ reports that Mel Gibson got the axe from The Hangover 2. It’s rumored that the cast was not happy with the addition of Gibson, who has a history of substance abuse and anti-Semitic rants. Director Todd Phillips released this statement today:
“I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew.”
Well, who’s going to replace Gibson?
