Bill Clinton Said to Appear in Movie, 'Hangover 2'

LOS ANGELES, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Maybe he reckons that if it was good enough for Arnold Schwarzenegger, it is good enough for Bill Clinton.

The former U.S. president is reported to have put in a cameo appearance in the upcoming comedy movie, "The Hangover 2," a sequel to last year's hit about a group of men who wake up after a bachelor party in Las Vegas with no memory of the previous night's wild events.

The sequel is currently shooting in Bangkok, Thailand and scheduled for release next year, and on Monday People magazine, citing an unnamed Clinton source, reported that the movie's makers had the ex-president appear in front of their cameras.

Clinton will play himself, but no other details were reported by People, which said Clinton was in Bangkok because he was making a speech on clean energy.

Representatives for Clinton and the Warner Bros. film studio, which is behind the "Hangover" movies, did not return e-mails seeking comment.

While Clinton has never formally acted in a major studio movie, he certainly has ties to Tinseltown owing to his days as president when key backers included TV producers Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason, among others.

"The Hangover" proved to be a surprise hit at box offices last year with more than $467 million in global ticket sales. "Hangover 2" already has been making headlines when cast member Mel Gibson was replaced by Liam Neeson following cast complaints about Gibson's participation.

Schwarzenegger, of course, is the one-time Hollywood star of action flicks like "The Terminator" who is now the governor of California. His term ends in January and already there is speculation about a return to Hollywood. He made a cameo appearance in recent action movie, "The Expendables."
