The BBC reports that the Braveheart star has landed a cameo role as a tattoo artist in The Hangover sequel. Gibson is expected to share the screen with the hilarious satchel-wearing, tooth-pulling, tiger-stealing cast, including Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms.
Warner Brothers’ original and insatiably popular The Hangover (2009), directed by Todd Phillips, followed the “wolf pack,” a group of eternal frat boys, as they descended upon Sin City to celebrate groom-to-be Doug’s last night of freedom. Toasting an end to the single life, Alan ensured that the bachelor party would awake to much more than just a hangover. (Find out where Zach Galifianakis — a.k.a.

Meanwhile, the BBC report also noted that Gibson’s next movie, Beaver, directed by Jodie Foster, has seen its release date postponed. The premiere has been pushed back in the wake of controversy concerning Gibson’s ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
