Rourke Praises Scott For Fighting Studio In Casting Him
And Rourke can't understand why film bosses are still reluctant to hire him - because he's no longer the troubled wildman he once was.
Rourke, who is currently starring in Sin City, says, "Yeah, there was some flavour-of-the-month c**p they wanted for this part, but Tony went to bat for me.
"I found that out 10 days ago. I was well behaved on the last few movies, and coming off working on Robert Rodriguez's last movie, I didn't think he'd have to do that, but he did."10/04/2005 14:24
