The Hangover pals have faced some formidable foes in their day — flamboyant gangsters, disapproving dads, shrewish girlfriends, Mike Tyson, and above all, themselves. But a new bit of casting suggests that the third installment of the comedy franchise could pit them against their most colorful villain yet. John Goodman has just entered talks for The Hangover Part III, joining returning stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis. More details after the jump.

Ed Helms in Talks for ‘Vacation’ After All

A few months back, we got word that Ed Helms was being eyed for John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein‘s Vacation reboot/sequel. But Helms shot down the casting soon afterward, saying that he’d heard “nothing” about it and that he had “no idea” where the press had gotten that impression.

Now, however, it’s looking like we were on the right track the first time. According to a recent report, Helms has just been cast as protagonist Rusty Griswold, the grown-up son of Chevy Chase‘s Clark Griswold from the first film. Read more after the jump.

The wolf pack has already done Las Vegas and Bangkok, and it appears that they’ll be heading to yet another world-famous party town for the third and final stop on their debauched tour. A couple of different outlets are reporting that The Hangover Part III will be set in Tijuana, Mexico, though an insider says much of the film will be shot in Los Angeles and Las Vegas before the cast and crew head south of the border. More details after the jump.

The good news for a lot of comedy fans today is that NBC renewed Community for a fourth season. There’s a catch, however. That season is a truncated 13-episode order at this point. And while EW reports the renewal, the site says that the returns of series creator Dan Harmon and actor Chevy Chase are still to be confirmed. Presumably there would be no show without Harmon, but given recent statements by Chevy Chase, perhaps there is still reason to be concerned about his return.

Still no word on Parks & Recreation, though that could arrive later this evening. But we do have promo pics from NBC’s new shows, renewal announcements for 30 Rock and Parenthood, and word on returning stars for The Office. Also after the jump:

  • Fox unveils a trailer for Fringe‘s fourth season finale
  • FX is developing Heartsick, about a female serial killer
  • AMC renews Comic Book Men and The Talking Dead
  • HBO drops new character posters for True Blood
  • VICE developing weekly newsmagazine series on HBO

Update from Editor Peter Sciretta: Apparently this report has been confirmed false. Ed Helms tells The Playlist that while he is a big fan of the Chevy Chase classic Vacation, he doesn’t know where the rumors originated (Perez Hilton…) and has yet to be approached for the project:

“I have no idea where that bubbled up. I don’t know where that came from. It’s nothing I know of.”

The original story follows after the jump.
