My Plan for Rehabilitating Mel Gibson

So, I don't think Mel Gibson should be totally drummed out of the business. I think he should just have to start all over again. Put him in a movie as an "under-five" (an actor who has fewer than five lines). Make him play BUSBOY #2 in a Matthew McConaughey comedy.

Watching the dailies, a producer might say, "Hey, that busboy who said, 'You dropped your napkin, sir' - he's pretty good."

Then the director will say, "Of course, he's good. That's Mel Gibson."

And then the producer will say, "Oh, yeah, that's right. In my next movie, let's give him a slightly bigger role."

Then in about five or six years he could be rehabilitated and have his own sit-com.
