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.

Shirley -
Aye, though it's common enough in the acting business.

It would be very unfair for folks to blame Mr. Liam for this. Put the blame squarely where it belongs - the gutless wonders of HO2.

I agree with you.

I think Liam should turn down the part in PROTEST to the "jerks" dumping Mel.

I like Liam, but if he takes this part, I'm going to think he is a sell out.

Liam, one question for you bro:

"Liam, if it was reversed, and you had a bitter gold-digger going after you in the Media, and the cast of "hangover" fired you one day before shooting, DO YOU THINK MEL would have taken the job the next day to REPLACE YOU. You know in your HEART, Mel would not do that to you, RIGHT? Think about that Liam. And sleep on it".

I agree. He should step back from this. What IF it was him that Ari had a hard on for? What if he couldn't stop the Jew Machine in Hollywood rolling afte rhim? He needs to think of these things.

I like Liam, but he's gonna suck at this role, just not for him.

As I said before Hollywood is RUN BY JEWS.

Rahm/Rahmbo Emanuel,(Ari's brother) is running
for a mayor of Chicago.
I bet, someday in not so distant future
he will run to be the First Jewish President
(remember Joe Lieberman?)

Tellthetruth, no, never wished it but you will still be an old broad. I'm sure Angela Lansbury might have something coming out soon.

YOU do sound like the Ox, every bit as stupid and bitter.

Yeah... all the ANON's seem to have that in common. It wasn't me... it was somebody else.

What b.s. If an actor complains about a fellow actor they had to work with, there would be no actors at all.

Good for Liam but, why make a big deal about Mel. Doesnt anyone remember who Woody Allen married? His own adopted child. This man still gets work. Hollywood hypocrites.

I think that Liam is the BOMB, and will do a great job regardless of the cir***stance...but that said,the agent both actors share is correct in his feelings. Mel has been convicted sans being charged and that is not the way it should have been.
I would have seen the movie because he was in it-not because of
the film itself.
Maybe someday, these public witch hunts will stop...but I am not holding my breath.

Angela Lansbury???!!! She's a dear lady. But you are REALLY dating yourself!!! hehe

I don't think we need anymore digging into who they are when it is obvious that they are either Jewish or owned by Ari. THAT says it all.

Since 2006, if you read a bad review on Mel, then take a look at the writers name: it's JEWISH. Each and every time.

This is because people over the world don't like jewish. They show how they are malicious, mean and greedy.

Let's see how quick (weasel) Cooper steps up to deny having any part in it. I can hear it now. (Rolling eyes) I'm sure we'll hear how much he respects Mel as an actor, and didn't(in any way) mean to discredit him. (Rolling eyes again)
