The Oscar-nominated actor will join his new co-stars in Thailand in a few weeks
While it remains unclear what role Giamatti will be playing in the Warner Bros. sequel, it's possible that he could be the one replacing Mel Gibson in a cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist, as Neeson recently announced that he'd been cast as a different character, although he didn't reveal who.
Giamatti will soon be seen in the indie drama "Barney's Version" as well as Fox Searchlight's upcoming comedy "Win Win" from writer-director Tom McCarthy. The actor is also set to join Ryan Gosling and Philip Seymour Hoffman in George Clooney's political drama "The Ides of March."
Giamatti is represented by UTA and Kipperman Management.
