Liam Neeson Replaces Mel Gibson in the Hangover Sequel

So much for Mel Gibson getting his comeback.

Earlier today it was announced that Mel had been dropped from the Hangover sequel and they have already found his replacement.

Hangover Cast Said NO to Mel Gibson

According to Variety and THR, Liam Neeson has replaced Mel.

The reason they didn't want Gibson was because "they don't want him to be in the movie and serve as a platform for some creepy comeback," an insider said.

"They didn't want that energy or to shoulder what would come with having him apart of the film."

Mel was originally cast as a tattoo artist, but we're not sure if Liam will play the same role or if that was specific to Mel.
