There had been reports that the role in the sequel would originally be filled in by Mel, before Liam stepped in.

"I spoke to Mel - Mel's cool about it, we're all cool," the Irish actor told Access Hollywood.

"Apparently, yes [the part was Mel's] - I didn't realise it at the time," he added.

The Oscar-nominated star, who previously worked with Mel in 1984 on The Bounty, described their conversation about the Hangover 2 replacement as "very pleasant".

"Mel and I did a movie together about 20 or 25 years ago. It was a long time ago. So, we know each other," he added.

Liam revealed he is a fan of the original film.

"I saw The Hangover in Berlin. It was one of those nights flicking through channels and it came on and I don't think I've laughed harder in my life," he said.

He denied rumours that his character in the comedy's follow-up is a tattoo artist, and brushed off stories that he shot with Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifinakis and the co-stars on location in Thailand.

"No. It was [at the] Warner Brothers studio. I wish [it was Thailand]!" he added.
