Heather Graham, one of the few principle cast members from ‘The Hangover’ who didn’t return for last year’s sequel, will return for next year’s ‘Hangover: Part III,’ Screen Rant is reporting. At the end of the original film, Ed Helms’ character, Stu, who drunkenly married Graham’s stripper character, Jade, promised to return to Las Vegas to take her out to dinner. However, he ended up marrying Lauren, played by Jamie Chung, in the follow-up.
Plot details for ‘The Hangover: Part III’ have the to be confirmed, and there’s no official word yet on what Jade’s role will be in the franchise’s final installment. But the series’ director, Todd Phillips, said the formula for the second sequel will be different from its predecessors. So it’s unlikely that Jade and Stu will be involved in a drunken hookup that will break up his marriage to Lauren.
It’s speculated that Jade will be more of a minor, but important, role in ‘The Hangover: Part III.’ It’s likely that her primary job will to be help Stu and his friends again when they become entangled in another misadventure, which will connect her ties to the first film. It’s also reported that the last entry in the series, which will be released on May 24, 2013, will be set in multiple locations, including Las Vegas.
