MICKEY ROURKE AND ERIC ROBERTS 27 YEARS LATER
Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts have been pals since they filmed “The Pope of Greenwich Village” (a great movie) in which they played two losers, back in 1984. (top photo) When Mickey gave his Best Actor acceptance speech at The Independent Spirit Awards when he won for “The Wrestler” in 2009, he implored Hollywood moguls to hire his buddy Eric Roberts and give him a chance for a comeback. Eric showed up for Mickey’s hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater this week.
