Apparently Doug is headed back for “The Hangover 3.” You know, the other Doug.
That’s right, Mike Epps will be back for another go in “The Hangover” universe. Variety is reporting the man who played “Black Doug” in “The Hangover” will reprise his role when the Wolf Pack heads to Tijuana. Maybe he’s around to sell the guys more roofies.
Actually, he likely won’t. We don’t know much about “The Hangover 3” beyond its locations (Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Tijuana) and its cast, but we do know that it’s supposed to ditch the tried-and-true formula of the previous two films and try something new. In fact, director Todd Phillips recently said this movie will “surprise a lot of people.”
“We adhered to the formula in the second one, for those of you who’ve seen it, and the third one, which would close the whole sort of trilogy, which now it would be a trilogy — even though we thought we would never make a second one, let alone anybody see the first one — I think it will take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure,” star Bradley Cooper teased back in December. “It might be different.”
“The Hangover 3” will again star Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, with Ken Jeong returning for a beefed up role. Hopefully Justin Bartha will return to double the Doug factor as well. The movie will hit theaters on May 24, 2013. Phillips has already said this will be the final movie in the trilogy.
