Silly season

The latest bit of nonsense doing the tabloid rounds is that Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke wants to play the part of rugby player Gareth Thomas in a film biopic about Thomas’s “coming out”.

That’s the 57-year-old Irish-American Mickey Rourke playing the part of a 35 year old Welsh rugby player. Good grief.

According to reports, Rourke contacted Thomas personally and the next step is to agree terms and sort out a script.

I won’t hold my breath.

Flanker, is this going to be a biopic or a horror movie if Mickey O'Rourke plays Gareth Thomas...at the very least it should be a British Actor...what is Sir Michael Caine doing these days?

Micheal Sheen would be a better option atleast he's welsh and could do the accent. Supports the blues too so he probally followed some of Alfie's life.
I just couldn't imagine the film though.
