Liam Neeson ‘to replace Mel Gibson in ‘The Hangover 2’

New York: Liam Neeson is reportedly set to replace Mel Gibson in ‘The Hangover 2’ cameo role.

Just one day after Gibson`s cameo was scrapped, Neeson has been recruited to fill in the actor`s role of a Bangkok tattoo artist.

“I just got a call to do a one day shoot on ‘Hangover 2’ as a tattooist in Thailand, and that’s all I know about it,” the New York Daily News quoted Neeson as telling Variety magazine.

The appearance was reportedly orchestrated by “Hangover 2” star Bradley Cooper, who appeared with Neeson in this past summer’s “The A-Team.”

“I just laughed my leg off when I saw ``The Hangover’. I was shooting in Berlin earlier this year and rented it on the hotel TV,” the 58-year-old star added.
