As the rumor mill continues to spin, Mickey Rourke has confirmed his role in Ironman 2. Rourke is one busy dude, EVERYONE wants to do a movie with the chihuahua loving actor. He’s signed up for over 6 films in the next two years. I guess he has to make the money while he can.
According to a report in Variety, Mickey Rourke may be tapped to play either Crimson Dynamo or Whiplash in a new Iron Man film. The franchise, already a landing spot for talented Hollywood miscreants like Robert Downey, Jr., would certainly get a shot in the arm from the very in-demand Oscar-nominated star of The Wrestler.
How much money did Marvel finally cough up for our favorite Virgo actor? According to “sources,” he will be paid $1 million to play Crimson or Whiplash. Filming is scheduled to begin next month.
