(Newser) – Hollywood's million-dollar question: Who will play the "tattoo artist in Thailand" in the Hangover 2 now that Mel Gibson got booted from role? Liam Neeson, reports Variety. A-Team co-star/Hangover hunk Bradley Cooper invited him to take the role, says Neeson. "I just got a call to do a one day shoot on Hangover 2 as a tattooist in Thailand, and that's all I know about it. I just laughed my leg off when I saw The Hangover, I was shooting in Berlin earlier this year and rented it on the hotel TV."
