MICKEY ROURKE HAS OPTED OUT OF STARRING IN GARETH THOMAS STORY
Somebody finally came to their senses and Mickey Rourke, 59, won’t be playing Gareth Thomas, the 22 years younger rough and tumble rugby player who came out as gay in 2009. Gareth approved of Mickey but the role would have required too many computer generated special effects to be cost effective. Mickey found the physical demands were too much for him. Gays had been calling for someone “hotter” to play Gareth and they may have gotten their wish. RocknRolla hunk Tom Hardy, 34, is in talks for the part and he’s more than physically ready.
