Mickey Rourke Is Really Just A Broken-Down Piece Of Meat

Mickey Rourke will not rest until the already blurry line between where his life ends and where the fictional life of Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson begins is completely obliterated (by tears). From MSNBC:

Rourke will be participating in WWE’s “Wrestlemania 25″ in Houston on April 5.

“The boys from the WWE called me and asked me to do it,” Rourke told Access Hollywood. “I said, ‘I want to.’ I’m talking with [WWE legend] Rowdy Roddy Piper about it.”

Look, good for him. Kind of. The Wrestler was great, and the good Lord in Heaven knows that Mickey Rourke has earned his moment of glory. He should stretch his success out for as long, and as far, as he can. It’s just that I kind of thought that was going to mean a few more boastful months of sitting at the finest tables in town drinking champagne on the house, getting laid by unpaid women, and maybe pulling in slightly larger salaries for the next couple of movies. Not becoming a parody of the character he played in a movie that actually kind of just felt like a documentary about what happens to human faces after so many decades of bad decisions and immeasurable human sadness.

But whatever. You go, girl.
