Let the "Hangover" gossip begin. With the second installment of the Hollywood blockbuster due to start filming in Bangkok next month, the world’s entertainment blogs and websites are scraping for any bit of plot info on what is expect to be one of the hottest movies of 2011.

Today’s Hangover-related rumor out of the United States claims that Mel Gibson will be making a cameo appearance in the film -- as a Bangkok tattooist. 

If true, it would be a controversial choice for director Todd Phillips, who is known for his strange casting picks after putting Mike Tyson in the first film. (Tyson is rumored to be coming back for the sequel.)

Gibson’s current legal woes are daily fodder for the gossip pages, including details of his alleged abuse and bitter split from Oksana Grigorieva. Many readers on various websites are already voicing their outrage at the very thought of Gibson appearing in the film, saying they’ll boycott it if he's given a part.
