John Goodman Nabs Villain Role In ‘The Hangover Part 3’

John Goodman Nabs Villain Role In 'The Hangover Part 3'

Okay, so saying “The Hangoover Part 3” has a villain is a bit of stretch — the series has thus far featured guys who give the Wolf Pack trouble, but aren’t necessarily their enemy — but regardless it does allow for the opportunity to let some good actors have some fun. In “The Hangover Part 2,” Paul Giamatti got to the chew the scenery, and now another name we really like will get do to the same.

The always awesome John Goodman has joined the continually growing cast in the upcoming sequel. He joins Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms in the movie, whose plot is being kept under wraps and may or may not involve breaking Alan out of a mental hospital. Goodman’s role will be small, but he’ll be the central antagonist in the pic. And he comes aboard the growing roster of talent, which now includes Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Mike Epps and Sasha Barrese, and we’d wager there is still even more to come.

Production will be underway shortly with the movie dropping in theaters on May 24, 2013. [Variety]
