!! OMG, upgrade: Mickey Rourke out, Tom Hardy in to play Gareth Thomas !!
Good news for Gareth Thomas fans: The gay Welsh rugby star won't be played in his biopic by a 59-year-old Mickey Rourke after all. "I was talking to Mickey yesterday and basically we're now talking to other big-name actors who could play the part instead," Thomas revealed in a recent interview. "We had talked about using computer-generated special effects with Mickey but we don't think that will be as realistic, so it's time to find someone new." That someone new is reportedly Tom Hardy, the English actor who plays the beefy villain Bane in the upcoming film "The Dark Knight Rises."
