EXCLUSIVE: A wild-eyed and muscle-bound Mel Gibson experienced an impromptu bout of craziness Monday on the Boston set of “Edge of Darkness.” In between takes, the 52-year-old tore off his shirt, revealing his still-chiseled frame, picked his nose, and appeared grief-stricken as looked around aimlessly. He then climbed up on top of his trailer, as if it was the Empire State Building and he were King Kong.

Though Gibson is known for his goofy on-set persona, his outburst seemed particularly influenced by rage and madness.
