Bradley Cooper Supported Mel Gibson ‘Hangover’ Cameo

October 22nd, 2010 // 54 Comments

As the entire entertainment circuit catches up to the Zach Galifianakis Comedy Death-Ray interview, which is looking more and more like him agreeing to be the fall guy for ditching Mel Gibson’s The Hangover 2 cameo, everyone’s publicists are scrambling to make it known their clients were against it the whole time. Except for Bradley Cooper‘s, according to E! News:

While sources are tripping over themselves to say that the whole cast—Justin Bartha and Ed Helms though maybe not Bradley Cooper—were opposed to the casting coup, it’s Galifianakis who’s drawn the most blame thanks after going on record last week about his displeasure over the way the production was headed.

What’s interesting to note, however, is that the entire cast and crew were aware of the cameo a full month before it was announced this week. Via TMZ:

Multiple sources connected with the production tell TMZ … director Todd Phillips cast Mel in the role of a tattoo artist a month ago and that the entire cast and crew knew about it and were simpatico.
The problem came three days ago, when a story leaked that Mel would be shooting a scene for the flick. Our sources say the friends of some of the cast and crew started putting pressure on them to lodge sudden, last-minute displeasure with Phillips’ choice.

Regardless of who supported the cameo or not, all you’re going to hear, and rightly, is how The Hangover cast Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist, but won’t do the same for Mel Gibson. Although Tyson’s conviction was almost two decades ago – not that that excuses it – while Mel Gibson was just on tape over the summer threatening arson with dashes of racial slurs until somebody blew him. But don’t worry, he’ll make another acting comeback, especially when Oksana is charged with extortion which I believe happened – along with the abuse. Because if this site has taught me anything, it’s that Internet tough guys love supporting domestic violence by constantly commenting, “The bitch deserved it.” It’s almost as if typing those words makes them forget their sad, vagina-less existence unless there’s some benefit I’m missing from looking like a fucking idiot in public. I’m not a detective.

    Mexicans have bigger penises than whites….FIRST!!!

      As someone who has experienced both I can tell you that you are 100% wrong.

      • GUY

        As someone who is both races mixed, i can tell you, i have no idea where i got my 8incher from. Im confused.

    • Aussie Mama

      yes you are correct, the mexicans statistically have thicker knobs, as the American Indians the longest. that’s why my husband Tonto Gonzales makes me so happy.

  2. The bitch deserved it.

    Fish – the champion of the Underclass. Fish sorry to disappoint: I got vag in my life but then again I guess your life partner can say the same – so really: How special is that?

    • kelley

      I think you are sexually confused. Why would a hetero be posting on every item on a celebrity gossip website? There really isn’t anything more effeminate and/or gay in this world. True heteros are posting on the forums of, not to pictures of what celebrities are doing or wearing.

    • The ONLY HTERO in this Joint

      I just went gay for dudeatdudedotdude – Fish please let us know when you and your life partner register for your wedding – we’ll join you.

    • J.B.

      You said in the comments for another post that you had gay friends. How do they feel about you using homosexuality as an insult to people you don’t like? You think you’re better than me because you’re straight? If we were walking down the street, I don’t think that anybody would be able to point either of us out as the “queer,” and (regardless of the fact that I happen to be one) it’s ridiculous and insulting that you seem to want to hold that up as a badge of honor. Why? What about your heterosexuality makes you a better person? You don’t come off as smart; you don’t come off as anything but petty. I don’t care how much or how little pussy you get. It shouldn’t count for anything when in the end you’re such an asshole. You do, however, come off as pretty desperate to seem straight, but I’ll save the “he doth protest too much” arguments and just hope that any potential tail you come across, male or female, recognizes your character and declines.

    I think people are missing the point, there’ s no comparison between Mike Tyson and Mel Gibson.

    Tyson is a convicted rapist and barely literate animal who bites off ears, but Mel Gibson used the word “nigger” when he was mad at a woman who was baiting him and secretly recording it.

    Gibson is a monster. Tyson is just a rapist. Hollywood has already gone on record stating that raping children is ok with them (Roman Polanski), so this isn’t news.

  5. Sugar

    OF course he does–I’ve heard some domestic violence rumor things about Coop. But he is hot.

  6. Amanda

    I love the posts that actually make me laugh out loud. Thank you, Fish, for being hilarious and intelligent.

  7. well that sucks for Brad Cooper.. i know I am not the only one who would have refused to see that movie.. i will never support mel gibson.. he is a racist, bigot, abusive, POS… i’m glad he keeps getting blocked in Hollywood.. i would have been really upset if I would have had to miss Hangover 2 due to poor casting of a horrible cameo

    • but you watched the first Hangover movie with a convicted rapist in it?

      You have some seriously fucked up values.

      • GUY

        @ McFeely
        Finally i agree with you (im referring to you as if you were the one arguing with me over Spiderman villains @ iwatchstuff in which case if you are, your still a dumbass lol.)

      • Once again, I agree with McFeely.

        You know WHY Mel is getting blocked in Hollywood? Not because of his racial slurs towards blacks, but because another one of his bigoted rants came against a certain race that controls hollywood and the North American media in general.

      • Lady Blah Blah

        Amen, McFeely. Methinks this “protest” about Gibson by Galifianakis et al reeks of Hollywood opportunism. Good for Hollywood career to refuse to work with Gibson.

      • That’s exactly what it is. The actors who are seeing their 15 minutes of fame fading *cough*galifianakis*cough* are using this as an excuse to feign outrage and get some attention on themselves.

        I”m waiting to see what celebrity interviewer will have the nerve to put Galifianakis on the spot for thinking rape is OK, but using the “N” word is just unacceptable.

    Gee, I wonder what persuasion the “friends” were.
    PS, the bitch had is coming (i mean that for real).

    • GUY

      She did have it coming. Doesnt mean Mel Gibson isnt a raging lunatic bastard asshole, but bitch was antagonizing. She was asking for it on purpose (money)

  9. Poor Mel

    What did Mel really do? express him self in what he believed to be private? Threats? maybe, but the reason they would cast Mike Tyson is because the black community glorifies criminals, its part of their culture, and a large reason why their community continues to struggle despite the charity and best efforts to assist them made by the rest of the world. Oh no, wait, I forgot theres a large white conspiracy to keep the black man down.

    • GUY

      You started off great and then just ended up sounding like some white supremecist moron fuckhead. Way to generalize black people ass whipe. Keep going with the stereotypes, you clearly have no clue about the real world.

    ain’t nobody above no ass whuppin.

    …right after that chris brown shit, one of the “entertainment news” shows was doing red carpet interviews at some gala event, and their correspondent was asking celebs what they thought of the chris brown incident, and i distinctly remember terrence howard saying some shit in support of brown… i knew right then that terrence was a woman beater… sho’ nuff, a couple weeks later, his domestic violence arrest record hit smoking gun… we are who we support… bradley cooper must have some done woman-smackin’ and nigger-name-callin’ in his time, so he can totally relate, and forgive… whoopi and jodi foster? hollywood sycophants, and sell-outs …oh, and, while i’m at it: fuck A&E… have’nt watched ‘em since they put dog back on the air.

  12. Ze German

    I’m guessing once Ari Emanuel heard about it he was the one applying the “pressure” to get Gibson kicked off. It would be interesting to see how many of the cast members WME represents.

  13. Monty

    I support MEL!!!

  14. Mel Gibson is a prick, at times. Mel Gibson is bigoted. Mel Gibson has a temper. Big FUCKING DEAL. Mel Gibson was being extorted and lost his temper on a private phone call that his bitch ex-wife released to the media in the hopes it would raise sympathy for her in her efforts to garner spousal support at a ridiculous amount.

    Mel Gibson is a MAN. He is a man with flaws and an ego and can say stupid things and has some pretty narrow minded beliefs, but he is a man. He isn’t a monster. He isn’t a wife beater. He isn’t a rapist. He’s a bigot and got caught being a bigot. I dare you to go to middle America, or heck even into the private homes of rich white people Mel’s age and see how many, in their private conversations, don’t talk or think like him. Ethnic Europeans who live in the US like italian, portuguese, greek, russian, armenian, french, and slavic people are even more bigoted and racist. So what’s the difference? Mel has a camera up his ass and microphone down his throat every waking moment of the day and he slipped up.

    I’m not condoning racism or bigotry, but I’m also not going to sit here and feign surprise and disgust at his behaviors or comments.

      Plus, he has admitted to being bi-polar. The fact that this woman would not just deal with this privately and get a restraining order is strange. She definitely should not have publicized the calls. I dated a bi-polar guy (did not know he was until after a month). He stalked me. He threatened me. It was awful. Called me names one minute and tried to be nice the next. BUT I changed my number and told the cops. I researched what to do when stalked. I never spoke with the guy again. I would never in my wildest dreams post any of his rants or try to embarrass him in any way. It’s actually cruel. The guy is sick and truly needed help and meds like Gibson.

      She has a kid with him but she should not have fanned the flames.

      Finally a real human being!
      Well said Mr Calamari, kudos for being real life and not a hypocrite.

    i want to sit on his pretty little face. MMMM

  16. Lance Bass

    I support Mel Gibson 100% in any and every endeavor he may fall upon…
    chin up Mel!

  17. sobrietyisacrutch

    Don’t you get dizzy sitting way up there on your high horse, Fish?
    Anyway, I don’t care about any of this because I hate sequels and there is no way this second one will come even close to being as funny as the original. So they can cast Charles Manson for all I care. Hey. That actually would be kinda cool.

    You are all morons. With your “She seserved it”. Women deserve to be beaten so long as the reason is good enough? Lame pricks. As for Mel vs Mike. I support neither and haven’t watched the Hangover I. That good enough for you? Idiots.

  19. iamseth

    who cares, it’s the Hangover 2…. i walked out of the Hangover when they ripped off Tommy Boy. (tiger in the car)

  20. anonymous

    bradley only says he supports mel because one day soon hollywood will make a movie about mel gibson and bradley wants to play him

  21. Jinxy

    All this tells you is how hated Mel is, for whatever reason, his hatred of Jews, demeaning female cops, screwy religion where you jabber in Latin to be pure, but have a mistress and bastard child, oh and you are a holocaust denier. Yeah a rapist who bites your ear off does sound better to most people apparently.

    • Aussie Mama

      Even Marilyn Monroe said, when she had finally hit the bigtime in Hollywood. “I will never have to suck another Jews cock again!”

  22. stu

    already can tell this movie is going to be a major disappointment
    why should we be suprised

  23. mervyn

    Wife/women beaters – blogs on Mel are the place to go….you will find all sorts of excuses you hadn’t thought of!

  24. Jim

    Good for this guy, and to hell with Ed Helms and the rest of the shabbos goyim.

  25. Bradley

    this post is hilariously dead on, Mike Tyson having such a big role in the first Hang was so fucking weird… but than again he didn’t rape a jew… Yeah I went there.

  26. Aussie Mama

    What a pity for the movie. 2′s never do as well as the original and Mel would have been a scream. True about Tyson, chews off a mans ear, like an animal, rapes yet till accepted. It seems you can do anything in Hollywood, screw your child, like Woody Allen and still have a thriving career. Anything but offend a Jew. That’s Jewish run Hollywood for ya!

  27. Aussie Mama

    PS: and as smokin’ hot as Coop’s is….he is gay….sadly, what a waste!
