The stars of the Hangover movies, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms, have asked for, and received, $15 million each to star in the third film of the series.  Sounds like a bargain to me. The first film grossed $467 million worldwide.  The second (and much worse) film made $581 million. Even if the third is a relative flop it should still make money.

You know who's probably the least happy about this development?  Justin Bartha.  Don't know who he is?  He plays Doug, the fourth member of The Hangover "Wolf Pack," who gets stuck atop Caesars Palace for most of the first movie while his friends search for him, and then gets to sit out the action again in the second (while they essentially redo the first movie step by step).  If he demands big bucks, they can drop him like they dropped Heather Graham after the first film.  In fact, they need Ken Jeong as Mr. Chow more than they need Doug.

So Doug, sorry buddy. So close to $15 million, yet so far.
