We already saw a few images and even a teaser trailer from Todd Phillips’ The Hangover Part II, but something was missing, the same that was missing in 2009 in the first movie: Where’s Doug, a.k.a. Justin Bartha?
Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helmes) and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) have all been part of the marketing, making me wonder whether Doug disappearing would play into the plot. The answer is apparently no.
The actor said, “There are similar circumstances, but he’s a little bit more involved.” The story also features a bit about the cast’s experience off the set in Bangkok, which apparently was almost as crazy as what their character’s go through in the movie. Said Cooper, “I didn’t feel like we’d started the movie ‘til we were in Bangkok – things started getting crazy, people started getting sick. We needed to get it into our blood. Literally. On a bacterial level.”
The article also came with two new stills which still don’t include Bartha.
