Last night Variety‘s Jeff Sneider reported that The Hangover Part II director Todd Phillips has cut Liam Neeson‘s cameo (i.e., the one that Mel Gibson was going to play until the cast revolted) because the scene had to be rewritten, and so he re-shot it with Nick Cassevetes because Neeson was in London shooting Clash of the Titans 2…another paycheck.

I’ve read the story three times and don’t understand what the big deal is. People who passed it along were saying”uh-oh,” “this one looks sticky” and so on. Maybe…but the only problem with this film (Warner Bros., 5.26), I’m told, is that it’s just a Bangkok version of the first one.
