Mel Gibson will be showing off his lighter side on American TV this week (22OCT04) when he dons a silly moustache to play a '70s motorcycle cop in hit sitcom COMPLETE SAVAGES.

The movie star agreed to demonstrate his comedy talents for the new series after directing the first two episodes of the show - about a single dad trying to raise five unruly teenage boys.

In the episode, Gibson plays a modern cop who shows off his skills in an old police training video, made to encourage kids to be careful when riding motorbikes.
