The Hangover 2 - Liam Nesson's Cameo Cut and Reshot

Labels: , ,

Variety is reporting that Liam Nesson's cameo in The Hangover 2 has been cut and reshot with Nick Cassevetes in the role.

Well apparently the scene that followed Nesson's cameo was cut and so the scene he appeared in basically had no use. They wanted to have Nesson come back but he was in London filming Clash of the Titans sequel.

So with the time crunch it seems like Director Todd Phillips decided to give Nick Cassavetes a call and he said yes.

Here are more details:

While editing, Phillips chose to cut the scene that immediately followed Neeson's cameo, meaning it no longer had the information necessary to logically get the Wolf Pack (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms) to what became the next scene.

Three weeks ago, Phillips decided to reshoot the scene, but with Neeson in London shooting WB's "Clash of the Titans" sequel, the actor was no longer available.

With the "Hangover" sequel set for release over Memorial Day weekend, Phillips had to hustle to reshoot the scene that became infamous when the cast and crew objected in October to Gibson's casting in the aftermath of his personal and legal troubles. Wanting to keep the good vibe on set, Phillips switched to Neeson.

"We were in a complete time crunch so I called up Nick and asked if he would do the part. He came in and crushed it and that is the scene that you will ultimately see in the film. [I'm excited for everyone] to see the film. It turned out great."
