Mike Tyson To Appear In Hangover Sequel

A backlash to the backlash over director Todd Phillips's decision to remove Mel Gibson from the cast of The Hangover 2 hit celebrity gossip sites in the Internet Wednesday with many readers posting messages accusing Phillips and the costars of the movie of adopting double standards. Why, they ask, is it acceptable to cast Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist and a man who once bit off part of the ear of a fight opponent, in the movie and unacceptable to cast Gibson, whose alleged assaults were verbal? The reaction intensified Wednesday when Phillips disclosed in an interview with Details magazine that Tyson will return in the sequel. "Yes, he will be back," Phillips said. "It sounds like a crazy hodgepodge, but it all makes sense." Meanwhile, Tyson himself has told the New York Post that he would have been "100 percent" working with Gibson. "I'm not going to ever in my life point my finger at anyone. ... We all have that guy -- a Mel Gibson -- in us. We just don't want people to be exposed to it. ... I'm not against him, but I'm not for him."
