We reported this morning that Zach Galifianakis pitched a prolonged fit that eventually got Mel Gibson uninvited to make a cameo appearance in The Hangover 2. The powers that be didn’t waste a moment in getting a replacement.

Liam Neeson will appear as the tattoo artist. He told Variety: “I just got the call to do a one-day shoot on Hangover 2 as a tattooist in Thailand, and that’s all I know about it.”

The actor jumped on a plane Thursday and jetted off to Bangkok.

Neeson lost his wife Natasha Richardson in March 2009. She suffered a fatal head injury in a tragic skiing accident. He is now in a relationship with Freya St. Johnston, a public relations executive and mother of two in the U.K. – photo and details here.

Check out what Galifianakis had to say about the controversial issue during an interview on Comedy Death-Ray podcast.
