Director Todd Phillips Praises Mel Gibson, Still Keeps Him Away From Hangover 2 "Family"

Guess Mel Gibson won't get a chance to redeem himself in the comedy sequel, much like the way Mike Tyson did in the original!

Mel Gibson has been dropped from The Hangover 2 - and replaced by Liam Neeson, of all people - and director Todd Phillips has adjusted his first statement about the awkward situation to Entertainment Tonight:

    The Hangover 2 is a family ... and as much as I loved the idea, a lot of people didn't. I didn't want anything to come in between that family."

Phillips also adds praise for Gibson this time around, calling him "one of our finest actors and, quite honestly, one of our finest directors."

Think those kind words make up for it? Mel is pretty peeved!



Saved face?
