Zach Galifianakis doesn’t want to dish out about Mel Gibson, just Debbie Gibson

HollywoodNews.com: Zach Galifianakis clarified his stand on Mel Gibson’s hiring/firing on “The Hangover 2” on the “Today” show Monday.

“I do not consult on the movies that I’m in. I just show up and I say my lines, usually terribly, and I do consult on dialogue,” said Galifianakis, “But as far as hiring and firing of actors, I have no insight into that world whatsoever.”

Galifianakis said in a recent podcast that he was “in a deep protest” with a movie he was working on, presumably hinting to “Hangover 2” and Mel Gibson’s cameo.

Though Galifianakis sidestepped all discussion on Mel Gibson, he yearned to gossip about another celebrity Gibson: “If you have any questions about Debbie Gibson, I can answer that,” he quipped, “Debbie Gibson, if I remember correctly, lives in this neighborhood and has a very nice toilet.”

“Hangover 2” director Todd Phillips further emphasized, “No one was ever fired. It’s a term that is so obscene to me … Someone was doing me a favor to come in for a two-minute cameo, and we changed it. It wasn’t like we fired somebody. [Gibson] was just doing a favor from the beginning.”

Liam Neeson will now fill the role vacated by Gibson in “Hangover 2.”
