This is great news!
Mickey Rourke is going to remove two of his front teeth in order to get into character for a film role.
Rourke will be portraying Gareth Thomas, Britain’s first openly gay rugby star, who was missing two teeth from a hard tackle in one of this matches.
Mickey has even been taking speech lessons to get Thomas’ Welch accent down.
Gareth Thomas’ agent tells Britain’s Daily Express: “Mickey intends to get as close to the character as he can. He is going to get rid of his two front teeth – he will be taking them out.”
Last time Mickey got into character like that, for ‘The Wrestler,’ he was nominated for an Oscar. If this movie is on that level, we expect Mickey to be back in the discussion!
