Liam Neeson's Rep Takes a Shot at 'The Hangover'

10/22/2010 9:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fun fact -- Liam Neeson's rep is also Mel Gibson's rep ... and judging by the statement he just released about Liam's role in "The Hangover 2" -- there's still some bitterness over the unceremonious Gibson firing.

Moments ago, the rep -- Alan Nierob -- confirmed that Neeson is all locked up to appear in the upcoming sequel ... but added, "Pending clearance of cast and crew background check."

Nierob was clearly kidding ... referencing the behind-the-scenes uprising that led to Mel's departure ... but the message behind his message -- he ain't happy.

Don't blame him for being unhappy.

Still think it's a good thing for Mr. Liam though.

I don't see how you get from that that "he ain't happy" about it--sounds to me like someone just poking fun at the situation. I mean, sure, he COULD be angry, but you can't tell that just from a witty comment.

Witty, or making fun. I wish to send Alan a dozen man flowers just for poking fun.

It's amazing how seriously everyone seems to be taking "20 middle-aged posters/stalkers/loons/crazed fans/Wing Nuts" on TMZ. Many of whom are not middle aged, crazed Gibson fans nor stalkers. Just people that know a bunch of frauds when they see one and aren't going to give it a pass.

I'd like to state for the record, I am middle aged, a semi fan of Mel's and neither stalker, loon or wingnut. I'm lucky I have a husband who loves the way I take care of the house, clean, cook and take care of him so I can post when I feel like it on net LOL.

Tellthetruth, they aren't taking your team seriously. They fired Mel. He's not in their movie. Despite your threats to boycott. So no, they are not taking your little Team Mel seriously.
