But if anything, Todd Phillips is determined to get the small role of the Bangkok tattoo artist right. First he had planned for Mel Gibson to take the part, but objections from the cast (mostly Zach Galifianakis) put the kibosh on that. Next, Liam Neeson was called up, but as Phillips readies the film for a Memorial Day release on a tight schedule, he still didn't have the scene he wanted and now someone else ...

Since being composed 135 years ago (for Ibsen's "Peer Gynt"), the epic tune has been one of the most well known pieces of classical music ever. Or do I only think that because it's been used in so many films and trailers in my lifetime that it's up there as seemingly one of the most significant works ever written? Covers by ba...
