Rourke in 13

12.16.2008

Mickey Rourke The folks over at "USA Today" have gotten ahold of the first still of Mickey Rourke as a chain smoking West Texas cowboy in the upcoming drama/thriller 13, a remake of a French film centering on a guy getting himself mixed up in "an underground world of power, violence, and chance where men gamble behind closed doors on the lives of other men." The gambling on the lives of other men apparently involves a game of Russian Roulette. With this and THE WRESTLER on the way, The Rourke is officially back. And, let's hope, here to stay. Click on that glorious 'stache or on the above link to check out the pic Rourke-sized.

Curious though, what his role is in this remake. And did it exist alternately in the original film.

The original director is back, and this one's in color. Whether or not that's a good thing remains to be seen, but I'm optimistic.

Diner

I just watched "Diner" for the first time recently and was amazed by how stunningly handsome Rourke was in his youth, like a young Brando or Dean ( perfect mix of charisma and beauty). Dude looks like an old lady now but he's remains one of the best actors of his generation.

As for the remake of 13, I loved the French original but it wasn't flawless - the remake might just work if the director decides to make it tighter.

Is this a remake of 13 Tzameti? Why can't the US come out with original ideas? Why do we always have to remake other country's movies? Do movie studios think we're too dumb to read subtitles? Ah well, that's a rant for another column.

Nothing against Rourke though. He is one BAD motha....

ugly indeed

But it wasnīt his boxing career that made him that ugly (he havenīt been in that many fights), it were that botched operations afterwards. BTW, thatīs up with that freaking bit, bulging eyes in that pic? Thatīs creepy, he looks like coming straight out of Madame Tussauds waxwork museum.

This man was so underated for so long, it's awesome to see he's finally getting the respect he deserves. Look at that mg, you know someone's had a troubled past when they have a mug like that

@ writer19. He used to be good looking. But then he gave up acting to become a pro boxer. So that explains his looks. But I agree that he is a great actor. I can't wait to see THE WRESTLER (if it ever comes to a theater by me).

Actually...

Rourke's got this, The Wrestler, Killshot AND The Informers on the way so yeah 2009's not looking too bad for him.
