Todd Phillips is really trying his best to outdo The Hangover with its upcoming sequel. First, he gets Liam Neeson to do a cameo, then Paul Giamatti signs on for an unspecified role, and now former President Bill Clinton will also make an appearance in the movie! You read that right! William Jefferson Clinton will be getting down with his bad self alongside Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Zach Galifianakis.
According to a report from People magazine, Clinton shot a brief cameo last Saturday but no one knows what it entailed. The former president was in Thailand giving speeches and meeting with important people when he caught wind of the film’s production. The cast and crew have been shooting there for a while, so this was a case of being in the right place at the right time.
It’s interesting to see all these “name” people stop in and do cameos for the film. The first movie had no bankable stars, and ended up becoming one of the most successful films of 2009, and one of the most successful R rated movies of all time. After it won Best Comedy or Musical at the Golden Globes this year it seems like everybody wants to get in on the action. Who’s next, Reverend Al Sharpton?
Are you surprised that they got Clinton to appear in the movie?
