Hollywood actor Mel Gibson has landed a cameo role as a tattoo artist in the Hangover sequel, it has been reported.

Industry newspaper The Hollywood Reporter said the Braveheart star will join original cast members including Bradley Cooper in the movie.

The original film, about a disastrous stag party that goes wrong in Las Vegas, was largely given positive reviews by critics.

The movie is expected to be released next year.

Meanwhile Gibson's next movie, Beaver, directed by Jodie Foster, has seen its release date postponed.

The date has been pushed back in the wake of controversy concerning Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

In July US police said they were evaluating claims that Gibson allegedly hit his ex-girlfriend.
