Ed Helms isn’t planning on reprising his Hangover role, insisting “peace in the Middle East” would have to happen first.
The 39-year-old actor has played uptight Stuart Price in all three of the franchise’s films.
While the star has enjoyed the success of the pictures, it would take a major shift in world politics for him to reprise his role.
“It would take peace in the Middle East for me to do Hangover 4,” Ed told Access Hollywood.
Hangover III is thought to be the final instalment in the series. It sees the characters returning to Las Vegas where the first movie was set for more hijinks.
Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, Heather Graham and Mike Tyson are all back for the film.
Many of Ed’s co-stars feel the story is complete with the most recent feature.
Director Todd Phillips has also washed his hands of the franchise.
“This is it for me and this is it for the guys,” he explained. “When you see the movie, it really ends.”
“It’s over. It’s done. Yeah, it’s done,” Bradley echoed.
Ken Jeong, who reprises his role as gangster Mr. Chow, likes the idea of shooting his own spin-off.
But he admits Todd would need to be on board.
“Do a Chow spinoff? Sure. I would do anything for Todd Phillips, absolutely,” he said.
The Hangover Part III is scheduled for release in US cinemas later this month.
