Everyone’s favorite stripper is coming back to the big screen. While she didn’t join in the Thailand fun with the gang of The Hangover Part II, director Todd Phillips is having Heather Graham return for the last entry in the trilogy. Playing the Las Vegas pole dancer character of Jade, she had some drunken nuptials with Ed Helms‘ Stu. As we know in the latest film, the gang went to the Bangkok area for Stu’s wedding with Jame Chung, but the actress was nowhere to be seen.
There’s no telling how Graham will fit into the story here, but she’ll join Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha, as well as Mike Epps and Ken Jeong (reportedly in a large role). As expected, Phillips will also “add several well-known actors in cameo roles.” But I’d count Mel Gibson out again and hopefully they won’t be wasting Liam Neeson‘s time as well. Judging from Phillips taste, hopefully it will be something completely out of the blue and controversial. As for Graham, she’ll next be seen in my personal highly-anticipated fall festival film At Any Price from Ramin Bahrani.
The Hangover Part III hits theaters on May 24th, 2013 and one can see the first teaser artwork below.
