From Wrestler to NOT Iron?


"Mickey Rourke has told New York Magazine that it's looking like he won't be playing the villain in Iron Man II:

'But so what if ICM's David Unger doesn't look good in a dress — at least he's battling Marvel for a bigger paycheck for Rourke for his rumored role as a villain in Iron Man II, right? 'Right now, we're not doing Iron Man II,' Rourke told us grimly.'

In January, the news broke that Marvel had offered the award-winning Wrestler star just $250,000 to play a villain in the sequel. Perhaps further negotiations didn't go so well? Also, Rourke is now firmly attached to star in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables, which starts shortly and might interfere with the Iron Man II shoot."

Okay, does anybody want to be in this movie besides Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle?! I mean, really?!
