Hangover 2 gets Paul Giamatti and Bill Clinton

— Posted by Rodney

The Hangover 2 is adding two more faces to its guys night out party. Paul Giamatti will be playing a smaller role and another “surprise” cameo from the former President of the United States, Bill Clinton.

ScreenRant says:

Paul Giamatti is officially onboard for The Hangover 2 in an as yet unknown role.

Former U.S. president Bill Clinton was in the capital city of Thailand over the weekend and shot a brief cameo for the Hangover 2, according to People.

I think adding Giamatti is certainly a plus. Adding a solid comedic actor to any comedy film is a good thing.

But I am a bit disappointed that we are discovering all these cameos and surprises in advance. I am part of the problem spilling it all to you, but frankly woudln’t it be better to have a Bill Clinton cameo we didn’t see coming?

And a down the road when the film is finally released, wouldn’t it be funny to see a Mel Gibson cameo too? In hindsight that might actually be funnier.

For instance, Bill Murray’s cameo in Zombieland, or Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder. Out of no where and people didn’t even know they were involved. At all.

Instant impact.

    Rodney- Your spoiler site is like a car wreck. It is something I do not want to see….yet I cannot look away.

    How EPIC is it that Bill Clinton is in the Hangover!?!

      not that Epic

    I agree with you but loads of people knew beforehand that Cruise was in Tropic Thunder.

    Yeah, Announcing cameo’s before they come out defeats the entire purpose of having one. BUT seems like that’s yet another new trend: Announcing Cameos to mediocre comedies to make them seem better than they are!

    Couldn’t agree more. Before I even got to the part about keeping these cameos a surprise, that’s exactly what I was thinking. So much more enjoyable when you don’t see it coming.

    I thought the same thing going all the way back to Terminator 2. Although not a cameo, imagine the “instant impact” of finding out that Arnie was good this time around. Even the set up in the movie was like they didn’t want you to know, but they already told you about it long before the movie came out.
