John Goodman May Join The Cast Of The Hangover Part III
Todd Phillips was able to wrangle Paul Giamatti for a solid part in The Hangover Part II, and now it looks like the director might be able to get yet another highly respected actor into the franchise. John Goodman is now in talks to play a villainous role in The Hangover Part III. The film is currently in pre-production and will be aiming to hit its release date on May 24th.
Goodman is just the most recent possible addition to the cast. In the past few weeks we've learned that Mike Epps, Heather Graham and Sasha Barrese will all be coming back for part three, not to mention stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha. The new adventure will take the Wolf Pack from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and finally down to Tijuana.
Variety says that Goodman's role - should he sign on - will be a small one and be "in the vein of the character Paul Giamatti played in The Hangover II." Other actors who were considered for the part that Goodman may end up with include Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr. (who worked with Phillips on the comedy Due Date). Phillips co-wrote the screenplay with Craig Mazin.
Goodman will be back in theaters this very weekend, as he voices a character in the amazing ParaNorman (seriously, go see this movie), but will next be seen live-action in Clint Eastwood's Trouble With The Curve, Ben Affleck's Argo and Robert Zemeckis' Flight.
