Look, I was already going to go see The Hangover 2. The original, a sleeper hit about four buddies (OK, three buddies and a hysterical Zach Galifianakis) on a bachelor party in Vegas gone horribly awry, broke past its core audience of teens and frat boys for mass crossover appeal.

I mean, Mike Tyson air drumming to Phil Collins? That's classic.

But now they've doubled down by adding the second most bro-tastic President ever to the cast list. Yes, Bill Clinton will be making a cameo. (And if anyone was wondering, the bro-est President ever was James Buchanan. Duh.)

It seems Clinton was in Bangkok, Thailand, to deliver a speech on clean energy when he ran into the crew filming, according to reports. We're not sure what the enterprising producers did to convince him to turn a set visit into a cameo, but we guess a Big Mac was out now that the former President has gone vegan.

When it comes to juicy cameos, Clinton pretty much blows Mike Tyson (who appeared in the original) out of the water and beats Mel Gibson (who was cast and then dumped) and Liam Neeson (who'll replace Gibson) by a mile.

So the only question left is what the 42nd President will be doing on film. We guess playing the sax is out, but we're hoping he can laugh at his womanizer past and give the dudes some relationship advice.

Like "always take care of the dry cleaning."
