There’s method acting, and then there’s this.
Inmovies.ca is reporting that actor Mickey Rourke is considering having his front teeth removed for his upcoming role as Gareth Thomas, an openly gay Welsh rugby player who is missing his front choppers.
According to Thomas’ agent, Emanuele Palladino, Rourke “is going to get rid of his two front teeth and stuff – he will be taking them out.”
Added Palladino, “Mickey intends to get as close to the character as he can.”
Call me crazy, but if you really want to get inside the head of a gay rugby player, there’s an easier way (especially a gay rugby player with no teeth). It starts with buying him a drink. (Film Drunk)
