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.
