Liam Neeson’s cameo in The Hangover Part II has hit the cutting room floor. The Taken actor was set to play a tattoo artist in Thailand. Director, Todd Phillips made the decision after Neeson was unavailable for re-shoots. He has been replaced by an unlikely choice, Nick Cassavetes, who directed the tearjerker The Notebook.
Mel Gibson was initially cast in the role but replaced after much opposition from the cast and crew. The film is set to open on May 26th.
