*Mike Epps is hilarious. There’s no doubt about that.
When he made a surprise appearance on “The Hangover,” he brought the flick to a whole new level. His role was so popular, that he’s again, a part of a trilogy.
Variety says the comedian will return as ‘Black Doug, the world’s sh*ttiest drug dealer’ in “Hangover Part III.”
Expected to be another crowd pleaser, part three – of course – keeps the original cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong, who plays the incredibly hilarious Asian dude.
As far as the plot goes, little is known at this time, but you can bet it’s going to be an adventure.
“The Hangover III” will be out May 24, 2013.
*Miami Heat center Chris Bosh decided to have a four-day long bachelor party dubbed “The Hangover 3” this past weekend.
And guess who didn’t go? Teammates LeBron James and Dwayne Wade were no shows.
From guns, alcohol, magic and man food, the celebration was a few nights to remember.
“It was everything these guys don’t get to do during the season,” a source close to the 12-man party posse told the NY Post.
Yes this all sounds like a sinful four-day orgy, but it really was sort of tame, we hear.
The guns came into play when the guys took a trip to Vegas for a little shooting. Then they had dinner at NINE Steak House.
So maybe it wasn’t quite like the movie, but it was a perfect last hoorah for the Bosh man who’s scheduled to get hitched to Adrienne Williams in Miami in July.
Mike Tyson arrives at the premiere of Warner Bros. "The Hangover Part II" held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on May 19, 2011 in Los Angeles.
*Mike Tyson, Spike Lee and John Ridley are joining forces for an HBO drama project that takes a loose look at Tyson’s early years in the boxing ring.
The project, titled “Da Brick,” also has “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin and his producing partner Jim Lefkowitz on board. Lee is set to direct with Ridley set to write and executive produce. It will be set in Newark, N.J., which carries the nickname “Brick City.”
As “Entourage” is inspired by producer Mark Wahlberg’s life, this project, still in development, will reflect aspects of Tyson’s upbringing, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
It marks the latest in a string of Hollywood projects for Tyson, who appears in the “Hangover” franchise as well as Animal Planet’s “Taking on Tyson.” Last season, he added a cameo on “Entourage” to his resume.
For his part, Ellin has a comedy vehicle with Ed Burns set up at HBO and will wrap up “Entourage” after eight seasons later this summer. Lee, too, is no stranger for the premium cable net, having produced and directed a series of New Orleans documentaries, “When the Levees Broke” and “If God Is Willing and da Creek Don’t Rise.”
*In “Hangover 2” the sequel, Mike Tyson is also making an appearance, but it recently surfaced that he was the lowest paid star in the film, according to TheSmokingGun.com.
Not that his acting skills match his fighting abilities, but the athlete/actor received $200,000 in pocket change for his small role in the movie as well as for recording the cover of the song “One Night in Bangkok.”
But this is actually a step up from his first appearance in the original film. He received $100,000 then.
Compared to the other stars, however, Tyson is getting the short, short end of the stick.
Stars Bradley Cooper, Zack Galiafinakis, and Ed Helms were paid $5 million for the sequel.
This is definitely the kind of thing that makes you wanna go hmmmm.
