Mickey Rourke Is Magical

I have heard that Mickey Rourke’s portrayal of Randy “The Ram” Robinson in the Wrestler was incredible but not enough to net him a best actor Oscar (Sean Penn won it last night for his performance in Milk). I am guessing his Spirit Award acceptance speech had something to do with it. Wow. Mickey Rourke may be my new hero. He sort of reminds me of myself after a half bottle of bourbon; rude, obnoxious and dropping f-bombs as if he were cleaning a latrine on an aircraft carrier. My favorite parts of his speech are his references to “banging chicks in the ass” and repeatedly calling Marisa Tomei “Melissa.”
