Mickey Rourke to Play Gay Rugby Player in Biopic

Mickey Rourke to Play Gay Rugby Player in BiopicSubmit Comment
Mickey Rourke recently appeared on a British talk-show, where he once again mentioned that he plans to play Gareth Thomas (pictured) in his next movie. Thomas is a Welsh rugby player who made headlines for being openly gay.

"You're not supposed to say that," Rourke said when the host asked if he'll next play a gay rugby player. "Here's the deal. When I met the rugby player, Gareth Thomas, this is one thing that he and I talked about. This is something that's really important. Were doing a movie about a man who plays rugby who is gay."

He continued: "[Rugby] is one of the toughest, hardest sports in the world to play. They play with no pads. It's a really brutal sport. To be a man who plays rugby who is gay and to live with that secret for the amount of years that Gareth had, to perform at the high level that he performed at, it takes a lot of courage."

Rourke said that he would learn Welsh for the role.

hopefully most of the world will now realise Wales is infact a country and not a county. Aslong as Mickey gets the accent down, i'm cool with it.

Cant wait for the amount of 'SHEEPSHAGGER!' comments so i can proudly say we shag the sheep...you eat the remains

Does this guy catch the ball with his face, or what (we already know he 'catches it in the face' from balls)?!

The guy was married for years to a pretty little thing, so he wasn't THAT gay, but he claims to be truly attracted only to men, according to an article I found whilst in search of the cause of toothlessness.

Apparently and expectedly, he lost his teeth as a consequence of the sport, and wears implants. He's really not as 'ugly' as you might imagine.

Naturally, Alex chose Thomas' worst possible image, which only does 'wonders' for hurting this place's respectability and reputation.

As for his gayness, like I give a sh*t. No matter how gay he claims to be, he's still more masculine than Che and all the whining lurker-bitches. I drag the gay card out only for the little sissy WP bitches, not for guys that have 'abnormal' sexuality.

Anyway, he's gay. But he seems like a nice guy, and that's more important to me than who or what he chooses to shag. As long as it ain't me, and I don't see it, I don't f*cking care.

This is the second time that Mickey's played a subversively/overtly gay character, if you count " The Wrestler ".
Max Rockatansky Junior writes:
on December 27th, 2010 at 8:01:37 PM

Can you imagine that face sucking off YOUR c*ck ?

He would be having to diddle your sphincter with his balling hand the whole time.

And you'd have to blind out your eyes with a mask made out of duct tape.

@Ranger

If so, Che's acting as their towel manager, using his tongue to dry them off, from taint to top of head.
