Mel Gibson Need Not Apply

*Note: Zombieland spoilers follow.

Bloody Disgusting just got the scoop that Ruben Fleischer and Columbia Pictures are searching for the next Bill Murray to carry on Zombieland’s great cameo tradition. After the wild success of the first film, word is they’re looking for “someone iconic along the lines of Harrison Ford or Anthony Hopkins.” Oh how I’d love to see a Sir Tony zombie doing something Hannibal Lecterish, but then again, Woody and Indiana Jones seem to share a hat obsession so he and Harrison could be super cool together.

While Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg will be reprising their roles, there are also calls out for a villain (to be portrayed by someone with a comedic background) and a studly rival to Tallahassee. See now, if old Bill hadn’t been shot up he’d be perfect for the villain role - maybe he can be brought back as a real zombie next time.

So have at it Pajibans, who would you love to see doing the next secret guest gig. Would psycho Mel even have a shot, or did he go so far he can’t even make himself the joke?

(Update: The rumors may or may not be true. At the moment, Zombieland 2 is not even Fleishcher’s next movie, although one would imagine that once the movie is made, there will be a celebrity cameo, so feel free to speculate. Or don’t. Or just read The Playlist for their account of the rumors.)
