Rourke talks Whiplash
Former wild man and current reformed eccentric Mickey Rourke recently sat down with the folks over at the Guardian to discuss his life and the amazing trajectory it's taken that, lucky for us, includes a major role in the currently filming IRON MAN 2 as Tony Stark's armor-suited nemesis Whiplash (or is it a Whiplash/Crimson Dynamo hybrid or something?).

||Rourke also mentions in the article that even when he was broke, he made sure to maintain his uniquely eccentric wardrobe.
