New THE HANGOVER 2 photos and news about Paul Giamatti’s cameo

Since news of THE HANGOVER 2 and it’s possible cameos have hit, I have wondered what crazy characters were going to be introduced. I also have noticed that Doug played by Justin Bartha has been absent in all of the pictures and the teaser trailer posted so far. In the first film he was stuck an the roof of a hotel in Vegas. If you are like me, you have been wondering what happens to him in this film. I also would love to know why Bartha’s character has been absent thus far. New pictures and character details have been released that answer those questions and more. Keep reading to find out and see the pictures embedded below.
According to Bartha, “Doug isn’t lost in this one. There are similar circumstances, but he’s a little bit more involved.”

This is good news that he is still a part of the film. It seems as though the studio is just marketing the film around it’s three biggest stars. Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms. This makes sense, since they were the focus of the first film.

Helms had this to say in an interview with Empire,

“Bangkok is fucking cool: romantic and terrifying. I was afraid I might spin out on some William S. Burroughs-like bender, but I resisted. For the most part. I didn’t feel like we’d started the movie ‘til we were in Bangkok – things started getting crazy, people started getting sick. We needed to get it into our blood. Literally. On a bacterial level. I’m delighted by the developments in Alan & Phil’s relationship… It gets tremendously physical!”

Cooper added the following statement, “What you think is the punchline is actually the setup.” This sounds great to me! Helms goes on to share some more insight into his character by saying that, “you’ll see demons in Stu that will shake every fiber of your being.” I love what I’m hearing!

Paul Giamatti recently did an interview with British GQ, in which he talked about his role in the film. The actor is apparently sworn to secrecy about who he plays, but offered up this little tid bit of info.

“I don’t think I’m supposed to reveal it entirely, but I play a really unpleasant, creepy guy who terrorizes them for a while. It’s like the first one, filled with all these odd little cameo parts.”

Bartha goes on to add,

“Well your first instinct is to think ‘Sequel—shitty version of the first film out to make money.’ But as soon as that thought entered my head, I remembered: this is a movie written and directed by Todd Philips with the cast and crew of ‘The Hangover.’”

I seriously can’t wait to see what this sequel has in store for us. At first I didn’t think they would be able to top the first film, but it sounds like they really stepped it up, and we can expect to be blown away by it’s awesomness.

Check out the new photos below:

THE HANGOVER 2 will hit theaters on May 26, and here’s the official synopsis:

In the follow-up to the record-breaking hit comedy “The Hangover,” Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.
