UPDATE: It is now confirmed that Mel Gibson will indeed have a cameo as a tattoo artist in the film.

The New York Post‘s Page Six is reporting the rumor that Mel Gibson will have a cameo role in The Hangover 2. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The troubled star, who was dropped by the William Morris Endeavor agency in July and has also faced allegations that he assaulted and made threats against his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, has signed to play a Bangkok tattooist in the highly anticipated comedy.

A source for the site adds that “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.”

The Todd Phillips-directed sequel, starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha and Ken Jeong, is scheduled to hit theaters on May 26, 2011.
