Mel Gibson - Mel Gibson 'Humorous' On Set Of The Beaver

Mel Gibson had a great "sense of humour" on the set of 'The Beaver'.

The troubled actor stars as a man with personal problems who has to deal with his issues through the use of a handheld puppet, and Anton Yelchin - who plays his son in the movie - reveals he was great to work with on set, as was director Jodie Foster.

He said: "On the set, it was great. I really like Mel and Jodie a lot. I really like Mel's sense of humour, and we get along really well, and Jodie too. For as sad as all the characters are, and as depressing as the film can get, it was a really light and fun set. It was a blast."

Anton will soon begin work on the sequel to J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek' in the role of Chekhov, and he admits he is concerned he may not be able to capture the same essence as he did the first time round.

He said: "It will be difficult to make sure it's the same person. That was almost four years ago, so it will definitely be challenging to try to capture the same thing.

"I haven't read the script, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what it is. It will be a lot of fun to play the character again, do all the research again and do all the homework."
