Mel Gibson will take on a cameo role as a Bangkok tattooist in The Hangover 2. The Warner Bros. release is set to hit theaters on May 26, 2011.
This will provide Gibson the opportunity to poke fun at himself after the rush of bad PR he was hit with after his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva released tapes of him verbally abusing and threatening her.
The actor currently has The Beaver from director Jodie Foster in the bag, but Summit has not announced a release date yet for it.
