A handful of rather high profile films have been added to the lineup of March’s South by Southwest film festival, including Greg Mottola’s Paul, Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, and a new documentary entitled Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop.
How did these Hollywood types get to be so great? I’ll tell you how. Unlike me, who wanders through life like a moron, they set goals and they stick to them. And with New Year’s Eve only a day away, we thought we’d ask the stars about their resolutions for 2011.
In this insane outtake from the popular 80’s TV show, the puppet can be seen cursing, simulating coke use, and dropping racial slurs. (NSFW)
Someone recut the trailer for The Beaver so that it included Mel Gibson’s infamous rant quotes. This story seems a lot more interesting now. It was weird when Mel gave the beaver puppet a distinguished British accent. It clearly would be asking people to blow it.
The film stars Mel Gibson as a depressed toy executive and family man who uses a beaver puppet to work through emotional pain. It also feels like a creepy apology card.
I’m surprised to see how much Foster is enjoying it. Look at the smile on her face! She just loves how Mel is manipulating that thing, and it shows.
Paul Giamatti has landed a role in The Hangover Part II, Deadline is reporting. The Oscar-nominated actor is set to join the cast of the Todd Phillips’ comedy sometime in the next few weeks. Although nothing has been confirmed, many are speculating that Giamatti will take on the tattoo-artist role originally offered to Mel Gibson.
The headline was pretty self-explanatory, but just in case you can't figure it out, here are some details. ComingSoon has released this teaser poster from Mel Gibson's upcoming film The Beaver directed by Jodie Foster. The poster is funny for two reasons. Reason one: Mel Gibson comes off as pretty insane, like the character in this poster. Reason two: Gibson was driven insane by some crazy Russian beaver, so it's funny to see him holding one. That is all (MovieLine)
As you probably know, Mel Gibson's cameo in The Hangover 2 fell through, and the role was given to Liam Neeson. While that is sad news, there's no reason for Mel to sweat it. There are pleanty of blockbusters in production, any one of which could help jump-start his scandal plagued career. We went ahead and did some research, and narrowed it down to nine upcoming films that Mel should focus on.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
While they have many adult fans, the Harry Potter films are for children. Children don't watch TMZ, so what better way for Mel to slip under the radar than with a cameo in the Deathly Hallows. It's a great plan, unless Mel's private church considers it witchcraft.
Technically he's Scott the Body Piercer from Father's Day, but we didn't need to see it again in The Hangover 2. Did I just blow your mind, or did you actually remember Father's Day? Thanks to Benji C. for the hookup.

"Okay, Mr. Gibson. If your career will just follow me this way."
Liam Neeson continues to build his film resume of doing anything anyone asks him to do. As previously reported, Mel Gibson was lined up to play a tattooist in The Hangover 2. The news caused the cast and crew to revolt, which led to Mel losing the part. That's when Bradley Cooper got on the horn with Liam Neeson and offered him the cameo role.
That's good. I guess. It's kind of a lame cameo though. Mike Tyson was clever stunt-casting, and his inclusion worked well with the first movie's plot. Neeson seems like a total left field choice. And he's in everything. Literally. Go through your DVD collection and look really hard during crowd shots. I'm sure he'll pop up 8 times out of 10. (Variety)
Mel Gibson is out of The Hangover 2 before he was even in it. Earlier this week we reported that Gibson was confirmed for a cameo in Todd Phillips's upcoming sequel to his hit The Hangover, but now TMZ is reporting that Gibson got the boot. Phillips had this to say:
"I thought Mel would have been great in the movie and I had the full backing of Jeff Robinov and his team. But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew."
It's thought that star Zach Galifianakis might be the one who was most opposed to working with Gibson, which is perplexing considering he's neither Jewish nor one of Mel's exes. Regardless, Gibson won't get a chance at a comeback with a role as a tattoo artist in The Hangover 2, what I hear is the equivalent of saying ten Hail Marys and kicking a terrorist in the balls.
It looks like Zach Galifianakis doesn't want to eat the cooter banana. While appearing recently on the Comedy Death Ray podcast, the notoriously choosey star of G-Force, "Tru Calling," and Out Cold intimated that he's having some "moral" issues with what Todd Phillips is planning to do on The Hangover 2.
“But a movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.” Galifianakis cut host Scott Aukerman off with an abrupt warning sound as the host began to mention the film’s title, but after Aukerman pressed, “I know you’re filming The Hhhhhhhh … ” Galifianakis admitted, “It has something to do with a movie I’m working on, yeah. I’ll tell you about it later. It’s very frustrating.”
People are assuming that Galifianakis is taking issue with the inclusion of a Mel Gibson cameo in the film. Which is kind of silly. Sure, the man is considered vile right now and this is a case of stunt casting in the highest degree, but in all fairness, he was going to be hungover anway. Can you really blame Todd Phillips if he happens to point a camera at it? (Vulture)
Mel Gibson runs with a pack. The Mel Gibson comeback express is leaving the station, and the first stop is The Hangover 2. The second stop is some sort of…
Here's a rumor that might be crazy enough to be true. Page Six is reporting that Mel Gibson will have a cameo in The Hangover 2 as a tattoo artist. He'll shoot his scene on the Bangkok set at Warner Bros. before the production moves to Thailand at the end of the month. Can this really be happening? Does director Todd Phillips really want to take this chance? Should Mel Gibson be left around needles when the slightest peak at a skanky extra could set him off?
When Todd Phillips used Mike Tyson in The Hangover people took notice, so perhaps he's using the same strategy in the sequel. Afterall, Tyson bit a man's ear off, and Gibson hasn't done that yet as far as the public record is concerned. Maybe doing a cameo in an outlandish comedy is the perfect way to get back in people's good graces. After the world accepts him as a tattoo artist it might finally be ready to watch him tackle Jodie Foster's Beaver. (/Film)
She's got his back.
No word yet if The Beaver will see a theatrical release, but director Jodie Foster has come to Mel Gibson's defense when asked about the disgraced star's recent scandal and beating in the press. Foster tells More magazine about her brother from another mother. Take it away Jodie:
"[Mel is the] easiest, nicest person I've ever worked with [and] the second I met him, I said, 'I will love this man for the rest of my life.'"
In all fairness, her other best friends are Darth Vader, that guy who punched Snooki, and that chick who threw those puppies in a river.
"When you love a friend, you don't adandon them when they are struggling. Of course, Mel is an undeniably gifted actor and director, and 'The Beaver' is one of his most powerful and moving performances. But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can help him get through this dark moment."
She then added: "Oksana really should have just blown him in the jacuzzi. He deserves it." (via The Playlist)

Mel Gibson is packing up and leaving the States now that his BJ rage tapes have been released. He's selling off his mansions for well below asking, and is heading back to Australia and his ex-wife. The same wife he left for the Russian model who exposed him as an abusive fellatio-crazed racist.
"Oksana’s allegations have united Mel and Robyn and this move is her idea. She is shocked and furious at this woman’s lies and their seven children are shocked. Robyn has never seen a violent side to him. She has persuaded him that he needs to get away from Hollywood and find peace on his ranch and she will go with him along with some of the children."
But what if he loses it again and thinks he's actually the Road Warrior? It would take ten Danny Glovers to talk him down if it comes to that. And just where are we going to find another nine Danny Glovers? (DailyMail)
I realize that you've probably had it up to here **places hand above crotch** with Mel Gibson mashups, but a fellow who goes by the name Oliver Noble **places hand above crotch** edited one for FilmDrunk that's pretty damn funny. It imagines a world where Mel Gibson is a script doctor whose contribution to material on the cusp of greatness is adding felatio punch-ups. Some people get paid good money for such work, and here ol' Mel is spewing genius out for free. Let's secure the man a literary agent, and yesterday!

Neither you nor I wanted to put them together in one phone conversation because that involves time and effort, so we waited a few days until someone else did it. We should get these two actors in one sealed-off room and they can really battle it out. Place your bets on who's going to end up in a rose garden. Probably Oksana since both Bale and Gibson have no qualms with hitting women. (FilmDrunk)

We have video proof of the racist pot calling the kettle black. In his interview with Dean Richards of Chicago's WGNtv, Mel Gibson doesn't approve of the reporter's probing questions regarding all that dispicable stuff he did. The drinking and swearing was sooooooo five years ago, Richards. At the end of the segment, Gibson throws a tiny dig in right before the feed cuts out. That's like pulling up next to a bicycle cop in your lowered Honda Accord and shouting "Pig!" before peeling out whilst cackling. Total burn, dude.
"Did you just place a LATKA in front of me?" Mel Gibson does crazy well, both on screen and off. Our friends over at Moviefone were tolerant enough to scour through all of his rants and compile them in to one neat little tirade. It's only the movie stuff though, so don't expect much anti-semitism or disrespect towards female police officers. Such comments are only reserved for real life.

Mel Gibson is to revenge movies what Jenna Jameson is to porn. The man has spent half of his career playing characters hell-bent on getting payback. To drive the point home, one of his movies is actually called Payback. In his latest film, Edge of Darkness, Gibson continues to indulge his sadistic revenge fetish. Based on the British T.V. series of the same name, the film follows a cop hunting down the men who killed his daughter. After all, for a revenge film to work the protagonist has to experience a great tragedy. And when it comes to tragedy, the loss of a child is at the top of the list. With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the greatest parental revenge films of all time. Mad Max (1979)
Last week there was news that Mel Gibson was renting a prison in Veracruz, Mexico for a film project. There were no details at the time but today comes news that film is titled, How I Spent My Summer Vacation. The film will star Gibson as a man who can hear what Mexicans think after an accidental electrocution. Just kidding. They don't have electricity in Mexico. Anyhoo…Gibson will not be directing this one. He will, however, be credited as the writer of the film that is actually about a criminal (Gibson) who is sent to a run-down, dirty Mexican prison where he meets and bonds with a nine-year-old boy. Hold on. They have children in Mexican prisons? Does Roman Polanski know about that? Seems like he could have saved himself a lot of belly aching with that knowledge. (Empire)
Mexican Governer Fidel Herrerra is emptying out a large section of a Veracruz prison to make room for Mel Gibson. The actor is said to be shooting a large production though there is no word on what the project will be. My fingers are perma-crossed that we'll finally see a big budget remake of the girls-in-sexy-jail classic Caged Heat. The Governer refers to Gibson as his friend, probably due to the fact that since shooting Apocalypto in Veracruz, Gibson has also donated $1 million to replace storm-damaged homes in the area. A few years ago I would view this as a thoughtful act of charity. Nowadays I'm not so quick to trust Gibson, and now he has the Mexican government in his pocket. What is he planning? (THR)
Where the Wild Things Are opens this weekend, and a lot of early reviews are saying that the film is too mature for young audiences… that they've somehow made a children's story into an adult film, thereby alienating the intended audience.Of course, none of this would be a problem if we just exposed our children to R-Rated topics at an early age. We suggest Hollywood partner with children's book publishers to help introduce kids to R-Rated fare as early as the kids can read. Here's our list of required reading:
The success of Taken has prompted Hollywood to churn out more father-turned-Terminator flicks. In the funny accent tour-de-force Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stars as a Boston detective searching for answers in the murder of his daughter. Was she killed in an attempt on his life or does the reason behind her assassination go much deeper? Mel intends to find out by smashing every window, door, and face in Suffolk County. We haven't seen Mel this riled up since he wanted his son back in Ransom. Written by William Monahan (The Departed) and directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), it seems to have a hint of Mel's fingerprints on it as well.
