Mickey Rourke: Still in Iron Man 2, Still Insane.

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Thu, Jul 16, 2009 at 2:59 PM


Remember when that picture of Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2 came out and everybody was all underwhelmed and puzzled and kind of angry? Well, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have some insight into all that Rourke's doing to make sure his part in Iron Man 2 is as great as it can possibly be. Prepare yourself for some Inside the Actors Studio-caliber shit:

Rourke, for his part, wanted to instill some lightness into the role of the heavy. "I told [director Jon] Favreau, 'I don't want to just play him as a one-dimensional p----,'" he says. "He let me have a cockatoo, who I talk to and get drunk with while I’m making my suit."

Quick question: Who the fuck lets somebody say something like that? In public? To a reporter? Let's examine that last part one more time, just so we can really appreciate it:

He let me have a cockatoo, who I talk to and get drunk with while I'm making my suit.

Fucking A, Iron Man 2. This is how you're trying to build buzz? By showing us pictures of Mickey Rourke looking like... well, Mickey Rourke, and then letting Mickey Rourke ramble about getting drunk with a cockatoo? Oooh, watch out, Tony Stark! Sure, you beat Lebowski last time around—but this time, you're gonna fight a drunk hobo with a cockatoo! Jesus Christ. You know something, Iron Man 2? This is just fucking embarrassing. Sometimes I don't know whether I should ignore you and let you screw yourself over or if I should hit you with a brick and put you out of your miser—

WHOA. WAIT. Entertainment Weekly also has a picture of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow!


I'm sorry for anything mean I ever said about you, Iron Man 2. I take it all back. I will be there on opening day. I love you so much. So much.
