Mickey Rourke confirms plans to play Gareth Thomas in biopic

Confirmation of rumors being heard since last summer in the Toronto Sun:

Mickey Rourke has confirmed he’s tackling a new movie role based on the true story of a gay rugby player.

The actor met up with Welsh sports ace Gareth Thomas over the summer, prompting rumours the pair was set to bring the athlete’s tale to the big screen - and the gossip is true.

Rourke says, “I read the story, it’s one of the toughest, hardest sports... and to be a man that plays rugby that is gay, to live with that secret for the amount of years Gareth had, to perform at the high level he performed at, it takes a lot of courage.”

And the Wrestler star admits he’s already in training to master Thomas’ Welsh accent.

Thomas hit headlines last year when he became the first rugby union player to ’come out’ as a gay man.
