Mickey RourkeThe WrestlerIron Man 2The Expendables
In Iron Man 2, Rourke is in talks to play a Russian arms dealer and
potential villain said to be an alter ego of Tony Stark (/Film has details). He will evidently also play an arms dealer in The
Expendables, which follows a group of mercenaries in South America with
their eyes on a dictator. Stallone will write and direct.
The twin reports signal that Rourke, who had a long and well-publicized
fall from stardom, is once again a sought-after (and insurable) actor
in the eyes of the Hollywood mainstream.
