With all the casting rumors swirling around "The Hangover 2," it's hard to know exactly what in the name of Mike Tyson's pet tiger will be going on in the sequel to the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time.

Is Liam Neeson playing the role of the deranged Bangkok tattoo artist that was originally intended for Mel Gibson? Or will that part go to Paul Giamatti, who along with former President Clinton, just signed on for a cameo? And what happened to Heather Graham's stripper with a heart of gold and her son nicknamed "Carlos"?

Jamie ChungSorry, Heather Graham! We knew you weren't reprising your role as sweet stripper Jade in "The Hangover 2," but now you have officially been replaced. The Hollywood Reporter breaks the news that "Sucker Punch" star Jamie Chung has joined the cast as the fiancée of Ed Helms's character's Stu.

The fact that the 27-year-old Chung might be a tad too young -- and hot -- for Stu aside, this at least allows us to flesh out the film's plot a little more. Maybe Stu's bachelor party is the catalyst for our boys' new adventure in Bangkok, where Alan (Zach Galifianakis) reportedly beds a transsexual (accidentally, we think) and the boys encounter an angry tattoo artist played by Liam Neeson. Who knows, maybe the tranny and tattoo artist will be one and the same (fingers crossed)? Read More...

Mel GibsonUPDATE: It's true. Two unnamed sources close to "The Hangover 2" have confirmed to MTV News that Mel Gibson has joined the film's cast as a Bangkok tattoo artist. Now the question is: Who's getting the ink?

This weekend saw some "Hangover 2" casting news that will leave fans brimming with pre-Vegas-bachelor-party anticipation... and other news that will hit as hard as the next morning's hangover.

First the good news: Mel Gibson has reportedly joined the film for a cameo as a tattoo artist in Bangkok. Sounds like "The Hangover 2" has found its Mike Tyson (who still may or may not return).

A source told the New York Post's Page Six: "It's a done deal. Mel will make a cameo as a tattoo artist. Filming is taking place on the Warner Bros. lot, where a Bangkok set has been built, and Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks. Then the production moves to Thailand at the end of October."

For years, Todd Phillips –- arguably the best comedy director in the business right now whose name doesn’t rhyme with Bud Apatow -– was pestered by fanboys and film writers alike trying to get the deets on “Old School 2.” Now, the good news is that people seem to have finally stopped asking about a sequel to the Will Ferrell/Vince Vaughn/Luke Wilson hard-partying hit; the bad news, however, is that it’s because they’re all asking for the latest on the sequel to this past summer’s Bradley Cooper/Ed Helms/Zach Galifianakis hard-partying hit.

“Right now we’re figuring all that stuff out,” the affable Phillips responded this week when asked about a second installment of “The Hangover,” which hits DVD and Blu-Ray this week. “Don’t put me on the spot.” Read More...

With pictures of Kristen Stewart as a stripper in the upcoming Sundance player "Welcome to the Rileys" hitting the Internet last week, we decided to take a look back at five Hollywood actresses who starred as a stripper in the past, and how the decision impacted their careers. Some were launched into success stories, while others took a sharp downward turn. Hopefully, Stewart will take some pointers from those who came before her and avoid squashing the success "The Twilight Saga" has given her. If that's even possible.

One unusual fact that's worth noting: three of the five names on this list -- Demi Moore, Lindsay Lohan and Heather Graham -- all followed up their stripper appearances with roles in the Emilio Estevez-directed film, "Bobby." It's hard to say what that means, though three counts as a trend. Apparently, fake stripping drives female actors to Emilio Estevez. Go figure.

Kevin SpaceyYou can expect a lot of things from a versatile actor such as Kevin Spacey. One thing you cannot expect, apparently, is the expected.

Case in point: The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Kevin Spacey's self-produced ensemble comedy "Father of Invention" has enlisted four actors for the film, including Camilla Belle (that's normal), Heather Graham (we're still okay), Craig Robinson (wuh?) and... Johnny Knoxville?! Read More...

'The Hangover'Now that “The Hangover” is the number-one movie in the country, Warner Bros are looking like geniuses for greenlighting a sequel months before it was even released. So when we spoke with the cast of the uproariously funny film recently, we got the scoop on where the four hungover friends might go from here.

“I'd love to do [a sequel], because I love working with these guys more than anything; this is the most fun I've had on the set of a movie,” director Todd Phillips explained. “I have some good ideas floating around of where to take it." Read More...

Heather GrahamAlthough she’s been the star of such classics as “Boogie Nights,” “Drugstore Cowboy” and “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,” Heather Graham has rarely delved into serious dramatic roles -– and she’s rarely been as hot as she is now, with “The Hangover” riding high at the box office. When we spoke with her recently, the blonde bombshell revealed plans to get gritty with a fact-based biopic about a lovestruck prisoner of war.

“I'm doing this movie about this Russian actress named Zoya Fyodorova,” the “Hangover” star revealed. “It’s a true story; she lived during World War II, she fell in love with this American officer. It was the time of Stalin, and if they thought you were talking to someone that wasn't Russian, they could throw you into jail for twenty years. She was in jail for eight years.” Read More...
