If you've seen 2009's The Hangover, there's no forgetting Tyler (a.k.a. Carlos), the wide-eyed baby boy who tags along with Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms in Las Vegas.
And there's no mistaking him four years later in The Hangover Part III, in theaters Friday.
"The cheeks kinda give it away, right?" his mom, Carrie Holmquist, jokes to PEOPLE. In honor of the third installment (the last of the series, promises director Todd Phillips), we give you a trio of little known, fun facts about the littlest member of the franchise.

Justin Bartha has a reason to celebrate!
The Hangover Part III star, 34, is engaged to personal trainer Lia Smith, PEOPLE has confirmed.
"They're very happy," a source says of the pair, who was first publicly linked this past New Year's Day when they were photographed in Smith's native state Hawaii, where they were "very cute" and affectionate, according to an onlooker at the time.

With Monday's premiere of NBC's heavily promoted Smash, season-five American Idol alum Katharine McPhee finally got to show herself off as a triple threat: singer, dancer, actor.
While her vocalizing had already helped give her fans something called McPhever, and her acting chops were put on display in the 2008 movie comedy House Bunny, the performer still harbored some pre-Smash regrets for some roles that got away. Specifically, one in the biggest comedy of 2009.
"It was between me and the girl who got it for The Hangover [as] the bride," McPhee, 27, recently told PEOPLE. After meeting with director Todd Phillips, "I didn't get it, but I went all the way. I would have loved to play that part."

They're back and getting into trouble again.
The mischievous group of guys from The Hangover – Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) – are reuniting for The Hangover Part II, and if the poster is any indication, they're up to their old antics.
This time the best pals travel to Thailand for Stu's wedding.
According to the studio, Stu decides on a "safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch," instead of a wild bachelor party before he ties the knot. "However, things don't always go as planned," says the studio release. "What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can't even be imagined."

Despite rampant rumors to the contrary, Charlie Sheen will not appear in The Hangover Part II, according to Bradley Cooper – that is, barring a technological miracle.
"Unless they have a time machine and we can go back to Bangkok, my understanding is that we have already filmed the movie," Cooper, 36, told PEOPLE at Saturday's New York press conference for another film of his, Limitless.
In a way, the Sheen rumors are understandable, given director Todd Philips's eagerness to line up unusual cameos. He originally went after Mel Gibson (that didn't work out) and then got Bill Clinton to film a scene.

First Mike Tyson and now … Bill Clinton?
Sure enough, that will be the former president sharing screen-time with the fun-loving guys in The Hangover 2, now filming in Thailand, a Clinton source confirms to PEOPLE.
Clinton, who'll play himself in the comedy, shot his brief appearance on Saturday in Bangkok, where part of the production takes place. He was in the capital city to deliver a speech on clean energy.
Fans of the first Hangover will remember Mike Tyson's memorable performance in that movie last year, while this sequel recently made news for the coming and going of Mel Gibson, whose cameo role will now be filled by Liam Neeson.
Directed by Todd Philips, the sequel, like the original, also stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha.

It's not going to be the clash of the Hollywood titans some may have expected.
According to Liam Neeson, Mel Gibson doesn't harbor any hard feelings about being replaced by Neeson in a Hangover 2 cameo.
When he was offered a shot at the role, which was first reported to be that of a Bangkok tattoo artist, Neeson says he "didn't realize" it had originally gone to Gibson but eventually had a "very pleasant" conversation with his fellow actor about it.
"I spoke to Mel," he told Access Hollywood Tuesday at the premiere for his new film The Next Three Days. "Mel's cool about it. We're all cool."

Mel Gibson's proposed cameo in The Hangover 2 wasn't meant to be, according to director Todd Phillips. But his abrupt departure from the project isn't any one person's fault, either.
"The Hangover 2 is a family ... and as much as I loved the idea, a lot of people didn't," Phillips told Entertainment Tonight of his cast and crew. "I didn't want anything to come in between that family."
Shortly after news of Gibson's cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist emerged, Phillips announced the appearance was canceled – and Liam Neeson quickly replaced Gibson in the role.

While Jodie Foster may consider Mel Gibson "the most loved man in the film business," apparently not everyone shares her opinion. Zach Galifianakis, who helped steal last year's runaway comedy hit The Hangover, sounds like he's among them.
In a Comedy Death Ray podcast interview that the shaggy haired funnyman gave (and which was posted in two parts, on Oct. 15 and 22), Galifianakis delivers a pointed comment about the making of The Hangover 2, which was to have featured a cameo by Gibson. That appearance was subsequently canceled almost as soon as news about Gibson's casting was announced.
Ostensibly on Comedy Death Ray to promote his new movie with Robert Downey Jr., Due Date, Galifianakis explains to interviewer Scott Aukerman that although he was excited by the success of The Hangover, he's not into a lot of the showbiz scene. Furthermore, he's against too much gunplay in movies, and he's even declined several roles on moral grounds.
