Liam Neeson didn't make it to Thailand for 'Hangover 2'

Though plot details of the much buzzed about "Hangover 2" remain mostly under wraps, Liam Neeson is spilling a few secrets from the set.

"I play an Irish tattooist, strangely enough, living in Bangkok," Neeson, who replaced Mel Gibson in the role, tells MTV. "At least, I made him Irish."

And although the movie finds the original "Hangover" gang — Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) — heading to Thailand for Stu's wedding, Neeson's scenes were actually filmed in California.

"Didn't make [it to] Thailand," he says. "I made [it to] Warner Bros.' studio... They built a set, which could've been in Thailand."

Still, Neeson had a blast with his hilarious co-stars, whom he likens to a legendary comedy trio.

"It was good to be with Bradley Cooper — he's a buddy — and the other two gentlemen. I'd never met them before, but I love what they do," he says. "The three of them are just, they reinvent the Three Stooges in a very funny way."

    I was suprised by the 'Hangover' movie, I thought it was going to be stupid...well it was but it was actually funny, not like any of that Adam Sandler, Will Ferrel, and Vince Vaughn stupid child-like humor.

    What's with people always trying to infuse stupid little liberal and conservative bashing into unrelated entertainment threads? Geez. Political trolls are like roaches. We get it, you hate the other party.

    He should have been referring to Brad Pitt, Tim Robbins and Jay-z...He could have called them The Three Liberal Stooges.

    Who cares. The first hangover sucked. The second one will be worse, that's the rule.

    Liam mentioned "three of them". There's 4 (Brad, Ed, Zach, Justin). Who's he leaving out?
