We earlier reported that Mel Gibson had agreed to do a cameo scene in the film The Hangover 2.  Well, according to Variety, Gibson has been excised and Liam Neeson is replacing him.

Seems that friends, associates, acquaintances of the actors assigned to Hangover encouraged them to complain about Mel‘s deep shadow.

Apparently they did.  Obviously it worked.
