    April 5th... BTW that's also the title of a wonderful song by Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson and Elvis Costello

    Rourke is used to getting his behind kicked like a mule. If I'm not mistaken, didn't he cut a finger off or something weird like that many moons ago?

    So Rourke pissed off a star WWE wrestler and vows to wrestle the angry grappler for real at a big pay-per-view event?

    Sounds almost too good to be true.

    Rourke might have just cost himself an Oscar. I think the Academy Awards voters might be turned off by this move.

    Or that he might be dating Evan Rachel Wood.

    Exactly what I thought.

    That and this is exactly the type of behavior that knocked him out of Hollywood for the better part of two decades. He's never struck me as the type of guy who is going to learn from his mistakes.

    See you in Marlboro Man II, Mickey.

    If people can do Regis and Kelly, they can do Wrestlemania. And if it's good enough for Liberace, Morton Downey Jr. and Pete Rose, then goddammit, it's good enough for Mickey Rourke.

    If he loses the award over this, then it shows how completely out of touch the Academy is (not to be confused with the band). It's an award for how good the actor is in a movie, not whether you think he's a quality person by your standards. OMG THE GUY WHO ACTED LIKE A WRESTLER IN THE MOVIE IS GOING TO ACT LIKE A WRESTLER ON A WRESTLING SHOW WHAT WILL WE DOOOOOOOOOOOOO? Fail.

    Hey, I agree. But Jim Carrey could summon a performance better than anything Orson Welles, Jimmy Stewart and Marlon Brando had ever put together combined and he still woudn't win the Oscar b/c he talked out of his ass once.

    If anybody counts on the Academy to do anything other than operate as a promotional instrument, like all other "awards" shows, they are kidding themselves.

    Hey, Robin Williams played the failest Popeye of all time, and he won ... well, just the one. But it was a really sucky Popeye!

    This guy needs an intervention, not a night at the Oscars.
