When I think of Mickey Rourke, I think 'character actor' not the star of The Wrestler.
Mickey has a look about him that I certainly wouldn't call handsome - HAWT yes, handsome NO! As a matter of fact, to me he looks like he's been around the block and back a couple of times, but he is unforgettable.
This man is tough as nails, a real man's man, but he has such a soft, vulnerable side to him that is revealed in the trailer for his new movie. He won the prestigious Golden Globe 'Best Actor' award for his portrayal of a has-been wrestler in the ring, but this man is no slouch in the brains department - his IQ is 119 - according to this Squiddo page! He also has an abundance of self confidence according to reports on his actions at the Golden Globes Awards. Perhaps he feels his time has finally come after years of being in the supporting actor role. I hope to see lots more great quality acting from this amazing man.
He's definitely in good company with Bruce Springsteen who won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song, beating out Beyonce, Peter Gabriel, Miley Cyrus, and Clint Eastwood.
Is there an Oscar in the future for Mickey? I sincerely hope so, but then I'm always rooting for the underdog. Especially the guy who has duct tape holding his jacket together!
