‘The Hangover’ Director Todd Phillips Insults Howard Stern’s Robin Quivers — Total Jerk!

‘The Hangover’ director Todd Phillips called Howard Stern today to promote his sequel, and he’s officially on The Dishmaster sh*t-list. First, he sounded exhausted and boring, and second, he took aim at Robin Quivers, saying he was “over her.” When Stern prodded, Phillips said she upsets the rhythm of the show, and she’s “changed for the worse with her constant interruptions.” I’m sure Quivers incited his anger after insulting his film, ‘Due Date,’ saying that no one saw it. When Phillips informed Quivers that the movie made “$200 million” worldwide, Quivers responded with, “from where? Thailand?” Clearly the guy can’t take a joke, because his retaliation was far worse than her original insult. Since I’m a huge fan of both Robin Quivers and Howard Stern, I’d like to tell Todd Phillips to suck it. Also — he should go to bed early the next time he makes a Stern appearance. That might help with his boring disposition.

Mel Gibson’s Hangover 2 Cameo Cancelled — Is Zach Galifianakis to Blame?

I knew the blogosphere was against Mel Gibson’s appearance in Hangover 2, but I wasn’t aware that the entire cast disapproved as well.  According to director Todd Phillips, Gibson’s appearance was canceled because, “the cast and crew was not on board.”  I assume that Zach Galifianakis is amongst the objectors, because in a recent interview he said, “[A] movie you’re acting in, you don’t have a lot of control — you just show up and vomit your lines out. I’m not the boss. I’m in a deep protest right now with a movie I’m working on, up in arms about something. But I can’t get the guys to [listen] … I’m not making any leeway.”  First of all, I’m assuming that Galifianakis meant “headway” and not “leeway,” but I’ll give him some leeway (pun intended), because he was so angry when he discussed the issue.  Second, I almost considered not writing this post because Galifianakis’ name is so hard to spell, but then I thought: you’re The Dishmaster, just use copy and paste!”  Anyways, I’m glad to see that Hollywood has at least some semblance of morality left.

UPDATE: Mel Gibson’s camp called the Hangover cast a bunch of hypocrites, seeing as how they had no problem employing Mike Tyson, who is a convicted rapist.  Good point.

Mel Gibson in Hangover 2 — Must You Murder Someone to Get the Hollywood Ban?

Please explain to me what Mel Gibson has to do to get banned from Hollywood for eternity.  I believe in second chances just as much as the next guy, but there’s no evidence that Mel Gibson is contrite for any of his actions.  Those “actions” include the much publicized tapes, along with his Jew-hating-Malibu-tirade.  He’s also been on record insulting gay people.  Gibson discussed some of these events during a ridiculous Diane Sawyer interview, where he clearly took no responsibility for his behavior.  So this brings me to my original question.  What does someone have to do to get banned from Hollywood for eternity?  I’m guessing murder, but I’m sure someone out there can think of an exception to even that.  Why employ this guy in Hangover 2?  Why give him a second chance?  Is he sorry?  Is he getting help?  Or is he the same Jew-hating, wife-beating maniac that we’ve come to know and love.
