Bill Clinton and Charlie Sheen Will NOT Appear in ‘Hangover’ Sequel
Remember those rumors that had the internet buzzing about Bill Clinton and Charlie Sheen making cameos in The Hangover Part II? Well, it looks like they were just that. Both the director and one of the stars have confirmed that the former U.S. president and disgraced actor will not appear in the film.
Hangover director Todd Phillips shot a torpedo of truth and told Entertainment Weekly that there were no intentions to have Charlie Sheen and Bill Clinton make any cameos.
“Somebody on some tiny little site made something up that said Charlie Sheen was in talks for Hangover 2 and then it gets picked up on every other site as a fact,” says the Phillips. “It’s not true. It’s so frustrating.”
The director does admit that Clinton joined the movie staff on set while he was in the country to give a speech.
“He stopped by the set because the Secret Service guys were like, ‘Hey, that would be fun on the way out of town to stop by a movie set,’” says Phillips. “But you can’t control what somebody writes on the Internet.”
While it's possible that Phillips is just refuting the rumors so that Clinton's possible appearance isn't spoiled, one cannot be sure. However, it looks like Sheen is definitely not in the movie as star Bradley Cooper also denied any involvement from the former Two And A Half Men star.
"Unless they have a time machine and we can go back to Bangkok, my understanding is that we have already filmed the movie," Cooper told People magazine (via Irish Central). "It's an interesting thing to start spreading. You would have to be a part of the Starship Enterprise in order to make that happen."
What a shame. Just imagine the outstanding dialog that could take place between Charlie Sheen and Zach Galifianakis's character, Alan Garner. So much potential.
The Hangover Part II opens in theaters May 26 for Memorial Day Weekend. I'm sure I'll see you there.
