New Photos of The Hangover 2; Plus Details from Ed Helms, Mike Tyson, and Paul Giamatti

The previously released first image of director Todd Phillips' The Hangover 2 showed the group of four friends (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha) heading to the airport to start their trip to Thailand to celebrate Stu's (Helms) wedding. The two latest images show that things (expectantly) go a little awry on the trip.
One photo shows Galifianakis, Cooper, and Helms approaching a monkey dressed in a tiny, denim jacket (with Helms sporting a similar face tattoo to that of Mike Tyson), while the second photo shows the same three guys seemingly trapped in a room.
While the plot revolves around Stu's wedding to Jamie Chung, Helms recently told AccessHollywood that the movie won't revolve around his character.
There are narrative devices that hang around Stu, but it’s... not Stu’s movie. It is Alan [Galifianakis] and like Mike [Tyson] and everybody — the whole gang.
Tyson won't be the only cameo planned for the sequel. Liam Neeson stepped in the role of a Bangkok tattoo artist after Mel Gibson's casting caused a backlash within the production, forcing Gibson to be replaced. Former President Bill Clinton is reportedly set to make a cameo as himself in the movie, though Helms revealed in his AccessHollywood interview that he was doubtful Clinton would make it into the movie.
Ah, I don’t know about that. I don’t know. I’d be surprised if he’s in the movie. It was just literally like they stopped by the set ‘cause they were in [Thailand].
In an interview with NBC, Tyson didn't confirm or deny Clinton's cameo — Tyson said he wasn't allowed to be near the former Commander-in-Chief.
I didn't get a chance to meet President Clinton, but that would've been interesting. They keep me away from those kinds of people. 'We keep Mike over here, we keep the President over here. You know, we don't know what might go on!'
Somone who will appear in the movie is recent Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti, who told Metro that he will play "a kind of bad guy" in the sequel, not unlike Ken Jeong's character in the original.
A little bit like him, yes. In fact, I have something to do — I’m connected to him in a way. I think they don’t want too many plot points revealed, but I have something that involves Ken Jeong’s character.
