    I think Rourke cast himself. He never had looks, he’s too old (and this from a 53-year old but truth is truth). What are they going to do? Soft focus or smear Vaseline over the lens?

  2. jaragon says

    Rourke was a good looking guy before bad plastic surgery ruined his face just look at him in “Diner”- this gay rugby movie sounds like a vanity project- he is simply too old for the part.

    and yet, RICK, the guys who love those women that you hate are Out. And Proud. And don’t hide.

    what use has hating gaga, barbra, liza, madonna and bette done for you? you’re still living with one foot and both balls in The Closet.

    their fans? Out. Empowered. You? Still closeted.

    but hey, prove me wrong. post the URL to your own page. maybe a youtube video you’ve made where you show everyone that one can be a Great Big Masculine Man whilst also Gay.

    for real. prove me wrong. Post the URL.

    hating Gaga and the folks who love her won’t change your closeted life, wimp.

    GO IOWA! Let love reign. Been married 3 years now. The devasting flood we had, in Cedar Rapids 2008, put things into perspective for me.

    I married my boyfriend shortly after the law was passed.

    Seeing your city under 8-10 foot of water, destroying most of the city’s fuctiions, really hit hard. I knew I could never be with my man. He’s my hero, my breathe, my reason.

    @Redball: Jason and Rick are definitely the same “person.” Might also be Tank, though his rants tend to be more intellectual, at least by his account. All should be ignored.

    I would rather see Rourke play the role than not have the film done at all. We saw in the Wrestler that he is capable of pulling off a physically demanding role. Perhaps he can do it again – give him a chance. If Gareth was a pretty boy, it would be different, but his gorgeousness derives from a ruggedly masculine look.

    Great news about the Higgs particle – we really live in exciting times! I’ve just finished reading the book about the Higgs Boson (www.popsciencebooks.com/physics-2/massive-the-missing-particle-that-sparked-the-greatest-hunt-in-science) and am very curious to know if they have really found this God particle.
