Deadline is begging Hollywood and movie fans to give actor/director, Mel Gibson, a second chance in the mainstream due to the 10th Anniversary of “The Passion”. Everybody knows that Mel got into a lot of trouble for his anti-semitic rant in 2006.

After 2006, Mel took a couple of years off of making movies but he returned in 2010 with the action/thriller, “Edge of Darkness”, in which he played the leading role. Then he starred in Jodie Foster’s, “The Beaver”, and released the straight-to-DVD film, “Get The Gringo”, he also played a role in “Machete Kills”.
Mel Gibson will next star in “Expendables 3” as the main villain.
Do I think Mel deserves a second chance in Hollywood? Yes, absolutely! In the past, I used to be upset with Mel’s anti-semitic rant myself but I got over it. You should do the same. People make mistakes. We all make ’em. It’s about learning from your mistakes and moving on. That’s what Mel did. He learned from his mistakes and moved on. He was really drunk and wasted around the time he said those things so I’m pretty sure he didn’t mean it ’cause drunk people can say stupid shit, believe me.
Love him or hate him… Mel is a talented man. He’s a good actor, writer, and film director. Like most people, “Braveheart” is one of my favorite films and I think “Apocalypto” is an amazing film as well. Of course, “The Passion” was great also. He made too many great films. I love all the Mad Max movies and of course, the Lethal Weapon series.
Of course, there will be tons of ignorant people who WILL NEVER move on from the anti-semitic stuff. There will always be people who will try to bring Mel down no matter what he does. I’m sure there will be campaign groups trying to get “The Expendables 3” banned in the USA ’cause of Mel Gibson. Wait ’til that film comes out.
Mel continues to work in Hollywood despite all of his troubles ’cause that’s what the man does. He makes movies for a living.
Mel deserves a second chance in Hollywood. I think it’s time to forgive and forget. Mel deserves it. He may seem like an asshole but in reality, I think he might be a great guy. He’s human just like the rest of us.
I think he deserves to be a big part of Hollywood again. Give him a break and let him live his life. He seems like a changed man and he’s getting better.
