Mickey Rourke excited about dogs while talking about Genghis Khan

04.29.2010

A few days after announcing that he was playing Genghis Khan, Mickey Rourke sat down with MTV to give more details on the project.

In one of the more interesting interviews I've seen with Rourke, he talks about how great of a writer John Milius (APOCALYPSE NOW) is, how epic the movie is going to be, and his excitement over large dogs in battle.

There's also some humor in this film as well, which sort of confuses me. I guess a Mongolian emperor is entitled to have a funny bone.

Just watch it. Be amused or bothered...whichever you choose.

Extra Tidbit: His interactions with the dog only remind me of Christopher McDonald's character in DIRTY WORK. "Okay, Cole. Well, it's been nice doing business with you. Now you probably want to go home and kick back and enjoy a nice, tall, cold glass of chihuahua piss or something."

I knew someone was going to come out and start making racist accusations. I'm so sick of the word "racism" and it's variations I could just fucking puke. It's an opportunity for him to spread his wings and try something extremely different. I, for one, am very excited about it and support Mickey all the way.

I mentioned this upcoming 'epic' to an Asian-American college professor, and she mentioned it was problematic.

I think it's really sad we're in the year 2010, and we have people welcoming 'yellowface' racism...as well as roles being denied an Asian-American actor.

Hmm, how about Denzel Washington as General Custer?

Morgan Freeman or Donnie Yen (or even Chow Yun-Fat) as Abraham Lincoln?

B.D. Wong as Napoleon Bonaparte....?

I hate that the interviewer dude pronounces "Genghis" the pretentious way by starting it with a "J".
Shit like that gets on my nerves. EVEN if it's like the proper way of pronouncing it.

It's not everyday that someone references DIRTY WORK.
