Mickey Rourke Into Gay Rugby

Who you callin' gay?

Mickey Rourke came out on a British talkshow the other day as a future portrayer of a gay rugby player. The actor who would punch my face through my face after reading the above headline is prepping to play Gareth Thomas, the gay rugby player who also happens to like men. Rourke said: “To be a man who plays rugby, who is gay, and to live with that secret for the amount of years that Gareth had, to perform at the high level that he performed at, it takes a lot of courage.” I could make a distasteful scrum joke right now, but I’m not gonna because I’m better than that. And Mickey might be watching. (Vulture)
