Having just watched THE WRESTLER last week, I could not be happier for Mickey Rourke, seen below accepting the Best Actor Award at the Golden Globes.
Rourke has logged some heavy miles. You can hear it in his voice and see it on his face. He's been in some bad scrapes, made some bad decisions and been the poster boy for Hollywood has-beens. And now he's brought all his life experience into this part. Sure, it's just a movie but I think I'll remember Rourke's performance for the rest of my life. It goes on the top shelf.
Congratulations Mickey. I'll be at the Ritz tonight watching THE WRESTLER again and lifting a beer to you. Whooo!
