Clinton will play himself in the Todd Philips-directed comedy sequel, which is filming in Thailand. The former president shot his brief appearance Saturday in Bangkok, where he was visiting to deliver a speech on clean energy.

The sequel -- which reunites original stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha -- made headlines recently when it was revealed that Mel Gibson would make a cameo.

But Gibson lost the part in October following an internal backlash at the studio and on the film's set. He was replaced by Liam Neeson.
