Bill Clinton is to appear in a comedy film about the debauched antics of a group of friends in Thailand, according to reports.

The former US president is believed to have a cameo role in The Hangover Part II, which is being filmed in Bangkok.

Mr Clinton was pictured on the set over the weekend after giving a speech in the city on climate change.

Extra security was reportedly put in place to protect Mr Clinton, who is thought to be playing himself.

A spokesman for Mr Clinton, who seems to be reversing Ronald Reagan's career change from Hollywood to Washington, did not return a request for confirmation of his involvement.

The first Hangover film grossed about €350m worldwide last year. It followed the misadventures of four friends who gathered in Las Vegas for a stag party and starred Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha.

The sequel, due to be released in May, has already been the subject of controversy.

Mel Gibson, whose career has been derailed by several scandals, was first cast as a tattoo artist. After other cast members allegedly threatened to revolt, he was replaced with Liam Neeson.
