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.

From ROL:

Oksana Grigorieva’s legal team is in crisis after her top family law attorney suddenly quit the case before a critical deposition, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

Mitchell Jacobs — a family law attorney who has been a Board Certified Family Law Specialist since 1986 — handed in his resignation on Sunday afternoon, citing frustration with some of the Russian musician’s other legal advisors.

It is a brutal blow to Oksana, 40, who is scheduled to be questioned in another deposition on Thursday.

Oksana has claimed her former lover, Oscar winning actor Mel Gibson, punched her in the face while she held their infant daughter Lucia.

“Oksana is flipping out that she has lost Mitchell, who she wanted and needed to call upon during what is shaping to be a very important deposition,” a source close to Oksana told RadarOnline.com.

Team Oksana is now without a family law specialist, while its lead attorney, Martin Garbus, is still unable to practice law in California, as RadarOnline.com was first to report.

Garbus, the famed defense attorney in the Pentagon Papers case, had filed a pro hac vice motion in court last Thursday -- a move that would have admitted the New York-based lawyer to practice in the Californian jurisdiction.
But the judge overseeing the case in a Los Angeles court rejected the motion.
Said the source: “Martin is unable to represent Oksana at her next deposition and this is causing her great concern and worry. She needs her legal team -- and a specialist advisor in family law -- now more than ever."

Jacobs replaced high powered Hollywood attorney Sorrell Trope, who Oksana sacked, after he and his firm clashed with her team of Garbus and Daniel Horowitz about strategy.

Jacobs has not returned RadarOnline.com's request for comment.

uuuuhhh...shhhhh... don't even mention the word Jewish because you are going to be banned for life even if you go to Magic Mountain..

I read in here that MG is an abuser..ohhh pleassse... If this statement comes from the Russian-show-me-the-money-lady,it's probably made up.

By the way.. MG got fired but Charlie Sheen it's still making zillion of dollars. I don't get it.

And my last comment for the director of Hangover 2:

Come on!! YOU ARE THE BOSS!!! Your crew are the ones who they are making the decisions about the film??? are they deciding what actor is working and which one has to go???

You have to be fired also for lack of b...ls
