Mickey Rourke Pulls Out Of Gay Biopic

Mickey Rouke has pulled out of the biopic for openly gay rugby star Gareth Thomas.
The 59-year-old actor had reportedly taken a method approach to playing Thomas, even tearing a bicep by arm-wrestling with rugby players while on drunken nights out. Now though, according to Thomas himself, Rourke has handed in his notice and the producers are on the lookout for a replacement. Speaking to the Sun on Sunday, Thomas said: “I was talking to Mickey and basically we’re now talking to other big-name actors who could play the part instead.
Who should replace him?
