Mickey Rourke takes on another sports role

HollywoodNews.com: After excelling as a wrestler onscreen, Mickey Rourke is getting his game on. Rugby, that is.
The Oscar-nominated actor is in talks to play Gareth Thomas, an ex-Wales captain who came out last year and revealed that he was gay. The Sun reports that Rourke was in London discussing the film with Thomas.
Gareth told the paper: “Being out with Mickey was like being in a film itself.
“The film’s a challenge – it’s one thing to play a rugby player, to play a gay one will be more fun.”
Rourke, ever the consummate method actor, is learning Welsh for the part. No surprise, as he went the distance to perfect a Russian accent and visit jails in the former U.S.S.R. in crafting his role as the villain Whiplash in “Iron Man 2.”
Rourke’s results at the B.O. this summer have been spectacular between “Iron Man 2” and “The Expendables,” minting $870 million worldwide.
