The Hangover Part II is filming in Thailand right now. In this past “Sunday People” section of that day’s Bangkok Post – the newspaper inexplicably does not put that section on its website, so I can’t link to it – there was a story about Bill Clinton’s cameo that he did while he was in town to speak on alternative energy at Government House. Going on to mention other stuff related to the movie, the story mentioned they’d filmed a scene in Cactus Bar in Bangkok’s Soi Cowboy red-light bar area. It said they’d redecorated the outside and renamed it … Siam Sam’s!
I happen to know the owner of Cactus Bar, a fellow American named John. Hails from Missouri. I sent him a message asking if that was true – he doesn’t know about the Board – and he confirmed it.
That’s quite a coincidence. I wonder if any of the movie people are Board members.
