The Five: New Members of the ‘Hangover’ Gang

With Todd Phillips’ very R-rated sequel on pace for a $125 million opening weekend, we take a look at five new faces you’ll be seeing in The Hangover: Part II.

Jamie Chung and Paul Giamatti

Jamie Chung – First off, no, she won’t be jumping completely naked out of the back of a taxi cab. Sorry. Chung’s character, Lauren, is (if you can believe it) set to marry Stu (Ed Helms). She is, in fact, the reason the Wolf Pack head out to Thailand in the first place. After a pre-wedding banquet dinner, she urges a reluctant Stu to go out and have a drink with Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha). What happens after that is a fuzzy puzzle that, through the art of movie magic, takes about an hour to put together.
Paul Giamatti – The veteran actor plays a character named Kingsley, a man who isn’t who you think he is. OK, that’s a bit cryptic, but there’s no way of explaining his character here without spoiling it.
Mason Lee, Yasmin Lee and Nick Cassavetes
Mason Lee – Yes, this is director Ang Lee’s son and The Hangover Part II marks his feature film debut. Lee plays Jamie Chung’s genius brother Teddy, whom the boys, um, misplace, during their night of debauchery. Will you be able to figure out where the Pack has left him before the light bulb goes off in Stu’s head?
Yasmin Lee – Before her (or is it his) role in The Hangover Part II, Lee (no relation to Ang or Mason) starred in a string of transsexual adult videos, the more creative titles of which we can’t print on this site. Lee’s character, Kimmy, works in a Thai strip club and when the boys stop by on their trip down memory lane, she recounts a disturbingly hilarious (and amorous) encounter with Stu.
Nick Cassavetes – Yes, that’s Nick Cassavetes, the director of The Notebook, playing a grizzled tattoo artist who gives Stu his infamous face ink. The guys stop into Tattoo Joe’s shop as they try to piece together the events of the previous night. Oh yes, and why their monk won’t speak to them. (You’re probably best just watching the movie to get that last part.)
