'Hangover' Cast Sinks Mel Gibson's Career for Good
We all know Mel Gibson is "furious" with producers of 'The Hangover 2' for canning him after the cool kids in the cast, particularly Zach Galifianakis, objected and essentially vetoed his participation. But what is making Mel so mad these days is that he knows the lighthearted cameo was going to be his opening salvo at a legitimate comeback.

An industry insider tells me that Mel "desperately wanted" the role, which he believed would have been a scene-stealer. "It was the perfect part for Mel," my source adds. "Guaranteed to be a blockbuster," even with his sullied name attached.
