He's Still Got It: 10 Athletes That Should Cameo In The Hangover 2

0 of 11

    Last year's comedy blockbuster "The Hangover" was an instant classic. An appearance by Mike Tyson and his jungle cat only added to the hilarity.

    "The Hangover 2" is scheduled for release in May 2011, with filming currently underway. Liam Neeson and Bill Clinton have been said to be the next wave of celebrity cameos, but what about the athletes?

    Here are ten athletes we'd all like to see.

Dishonorable Mentions

    People that should absolutely not get any more media attention and should be banned from any type of appearance in this and all other movies:

    Brett Favre

    LeBron James

    Tiger Woods

    Terrell Owens

    Chad Ochocinco

    Every New York Yankee


    Just had to get that out there.

Troy Polamalu

    He's got a great sense of humor as evidenced by his hair product commercials. Even as a Steeler-hater, I have nothing but respect for Troy and the way he plays the game.

    With his recent exploration into advertising, more people would now recognize him, especially if he poofed out the hair.

John Daly

    This just seems like a perfect fit, what with Jon being hungover for 80% of his adult life.

    Even though he usually never sniffs the leaderboards, Jon has always had a special place in fans' hearts.

Ron Artest

    This would be interesting. 

    If I'm director Todd Phillips, I would just let Ron improv his role, just to see what fascinating thing he would say or do next.

Tim Tebow

    Love him or hate him, Tim Tebow in a movie like the Hangover would be funny, admit it.

Herm Edwards

    The Herminator would be hilarious as a bartender, passing out advice on how to pick up ladies.


Jared Allen

    Jared Allen is awesome. Whether it's the hair, the beard or the jorts, he's always entertaining.

    Might we see him as a bouncer or speedo-donning lifeguard in TH2??

Mike Ditka

    Ditka! Ditka! Ditka!

    Already with some acting experience under his belt (Kicking and Screaming), who wouldn't love to see the former Bear tackle Bradley Cooper on the beach?

Brian Wilson

    Forget cameo, I'm all for Brian being added on as the fifth member of the wolf pack. 

    He could definitely pass for Allen's younger, and even weirder, brother.


10 of 11

    Probably the single most recognized personality on this list.

    If you have never even seen a basketball game, or know what basketball is, you could still write a ten page report on Shaquille O'Neal.

    I mean come on, the guy's a 13 year old trapped in an adult's body.

Joe Paterno

    Who wouldn't want to see Joe Paterno in the Hangover?? Perhaps a nice beach scene with Joe sportin' a Hawaiian shirt with a couple bikini models feeding him grapes and fanning him with a palm branch.
