Forget those rumors that former president Bill Clinton will be appearing in "The Hangover 2." According to star Ed Helms, Clinton's only role was behind-the-scenes.
"He came and visited us," Helms told MTV of why Clinton turned up on the Thailand set of the upcoming comedy. "I'd be surprised if there's a scene in the movie."
While Clinton may not be on camera, expect to see another familiar face making a cameo: Mike Tyson. The heavyweight champion figured hilariously into the first film's story line and Helms confirms that he'll be back for a second round.
"We had a good time," Helms said of Tyson. "A little bit of a reunion of sorts."
As Marquee previously reported, the plot of "The Hangover 2" centers on Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) all heading to Thailand for Stu's wedding. Instead of celebrating his last days of bachelorhood with a wild blowout, the dentist — who lost a tooth while partying in Sin City in the first film — chooses to take a walk on the mild side.
"The Hangover 2" is slated for release on May 26.
