London: Hollywood star Bradley Cooper appreciated Mike Tyson's performance in ‘The Hangover:Part II’ and said he is 'very funny' in the sequel.

Cooper will be seen along with the former world heavyweight boxing champion in the comedy sequel, which is set in Bangkok,

Thailand, and has said that he is very impressed with the retired sportsman's performance as himself, reported a website.

"He's very funny, yeah, and he's actually very good in this second film too. I've got to tell you, I really think that this could be a great movie. I'm really excited about it," Cooper said.

The actor reprises his role as Phil Wenneck in the sequel alongside Zach Galifianakis as Alan Garner and Ed Helms as Dr Stuart Price.

The first 'Hangover' film, released in 2009, saw Mike's pet tiger returned to him by the trio after they stole it.

Recently, director Todd Phillips revealed he would like to make a third 'Hangover' film. The filmmaker thinks the franchise should be a trilogy and wants to make another movie which is different from the first two.
