In The Hangover franchise thus far, there have been some interesting villains against the three best friends that anybody could have. The first one found Ken Jeong’s Chow as really the face of antagonism until the second part featured a mafia once more to a certain degree with some Russian mobsters leading a violent car chase in Bangkok. With plot details slim so far on the third installment, the final chapter of the trilogy is ready to move into production though we don’t quite know what else besides the clock will be working against the heroes. Now, an impressive addition to the cast has joined as yet another small villain to close out the series.
Variety reports that John Goodman has signed on to play “a small role as an antagonist” in The Hangover: Part III. Like the story itself, any details are currently being kept on the down low.
The third film is set to begin shooting next month in both Las Vegas and Tijuana, with a return trip to the first movie’s location. Along with that, a number of familiar faces will also be reprising their roles as Heather Graham, Mike Epps and Mike Tyson are at least the only confirmed ones thus far as members of the Vegas vacation that will be resurfacing in next summer’s latest adventure.
Also starring Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, Jeong and more, it’s said that the sequel is “expected to add several well-known actors in cameo roles”. Seeing how at one point Mel Gibson was lined up to cameo in the second film only leading to a Liam Neeson replacement, it’s safe to say that really anything could happen.
Directed by Todd Phillips, The Hangover: Part III opens in a theater near you on May 24th, 2013.
