Mel Gibson can kiss his movie comeback goodbye.
The embattled star was slated to play a small role in the sequel to the smash hit comedy The Hangover. But following a revolt by the cast and crew, his role in The Hangover 2 is gone with the wind.
Star Zach Galifianakis was apparently expressing his unhappiness with Gibson during a radio interview where he said, "I'm in a deep protest right now with a movie I'm working on, up in arms about something." (Source: Comedy Death-Ray)
Some fans are pointing out that former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson appeared in the original Hangover.
Wrote one Huffington Post blogger, "Amazing. Nobody had a problem with convicted rapist Mike Tyson in the first Hangover, but a drunk guy who said crazy stuff, they ban."
And they've already got a replacement. Mel Gibson is being replaced in the Hangover 2 by Liam Neeson.
