The Academy Award-winning actor landed a star cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist, according to published reports.

Sources tell the New York Post the appearance is a “done deal,” adding “Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks.”

Gibson has been laying low while he deals with the legal hang-ups and backlash surrounding his bitter split with Oksana Grigorieva.

It is not known whether Gibson’s “Hangover 2” character will reference his current real-life problems. But the original movie did much to reinvent Mike Tyson’s image from a troubled drug user into a comedic actor.
