It’s not going to be the clash of the Hollywood titans some may have expected.

According to Liam Neeson, Mel Gibson doesn’t harbor any hard feelings about being replaced by Neeson in a Hangover 2 cameo.

When he was offered a shot at the role, which was first reported to be that of a Bangkok tattoo artist, Neeson says he “didn’t realize” it had originally gone to Gibson but eventually had a “very pleasant” conversation with his fellow actor about it.

“I spoke to Mel,” he told Access Hollywood Tuesday at the premiere for his new film The Next Three Days. “Mel’s cool about it. We’re all cool.”
