Liam Neeson came to the rescue of The Hangover 2 last year when Mel Gibson’s scheduled cameo appearance was spiked at the last minute.

Now, the A-Team star has spoken out about his time with the Hangover boys, and revealed it was an “intense” time.

“Oh, it was [ fun ], it was,” he says. “It was pretty intense. I was only there for one day - a Sunday, as far as I remember.

“But it was good to be with Bradley Cooper - he's a buddy - and the other two gentlemen [ Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis ], I'd never met them before, but I love what they do.”

Neeson will pitch up in the comedy sequel as an Irish tattoo artist living in Bangkok. He visited the film’s central trio on the WB’s California lot, where a Thai city set had been built.

The actor’s compliments don’t end there, as he adds that “the three of them … reinvent the Three Stooges in a very funny way”. Nice work if you can get it.

The Hangover 2 opens on 27 May.
