article imageHow Mickey Rourke became one of the 'Immortals' Special

By Earl Dittman     Mar 4, 2012 in Entertainment
Mickey Rourke continues his rise back up the Hollywood ladder of fame, this time as a merciless, mythological king in the savage, epic fight film 'Immortals' (on Blu-Ray/DVD), directed by the legendary, visionary filmmaker Tarshem Singh.
As he delves deeper into Phase 2 of his career, Mickey Rourke has learned to take his steps up the ladder of fame much more cautiously and intelligently. His second journey up Tinsel Town's escalator to good fortune hasn't been an easy one for the one-time superstar, but Rourke is a truly talented actor and a no-BS trouper who takes refuses to any prisoners -- he'll make it everytime. He knows what it feels like to lose it all, so he doesn't take any second chances lightly. He loves acting, and he isn't afraid declare it. The king is back!
In the action-packed, mythological fight film Immortals, a brave warrior, touched by the gods, must overcome all odds to save mankind from a merciless and powerful tyrant. From autuer and critically-acclaimed filmmaker (who created the cult classic The Cell and The Fall) -- director Tarsem Singh has created a visually-stunning and savagely beautiful film from a script written by Charles Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides. Reminiscent of 300 and Sin City, Immortals is an amazing cinematic graphic novel, creating an amazing, jaw-dropping viewing experience for fans of fine filmmaking.

Immortals, from the producers of 300 -- Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari, and Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh -- literally jumps off the screen with its action-packed battle sequences, fights with mythological creatures and awe-inspiring adventures -- and includes a talented cast of A-list actors including Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) as the merciless and cruel King Hyperion and Henry Cavill (Superman: Man of Steel) as the warrior Theseus. In this epic tale of vengeance and destiny, power-mad King Hyperion (Rourke) threatens to destroy all of humanity on his maniacal quest to obtain the ultimate weapon – the legendary Epirus Bow that gives the power to unleash war on both Heaven and Earth. But Theseus (Cavill), a heroic young villager chosen by the gods, rises up to stop Hyperion’s brutal rampage. With supernatural help from the beautiful oracle Phaedra (Slumdog Millionaire beauty Freida Pinto), Theseus embraces his destiny and leads a fierce band of warriors in a desperate fight for the future of mankind. The film also stars Luke Evans (Robin Hood), Kellan Lutz (Twilight), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Stephen Dorff (Public Enemies) and John Hurt (Hellboy).
Immortals marks Rourke's continued basking in the Hollywood sun. After being all but banished from the Tinsel Town community for close to fifteen years (due to outrageous behavior and alleged drug and spousal abuse), the one-time star of the early-80s classics Diner and 9 1/2 Weeks couldn't get him hired by single casting agent in Hollywood --- until -- director Robert Rodriquez (a long-time fan) decided to give him a chance at a handful of roles, beginning with 2003's Once Upon In Mexico, 2005's Sin City and old pal Sylvester Stallone cast him in a small role in the '05's remake of Get Carter. Producers and other directors were amazed by the performances they were witnessing and slowly but surely Rourke began to score gigs in such films as Domino and Stormbreaker. Rourke's chance at a second shot at glory came in the form of director Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, which garnered Rourke several acting awards and a Best Actor Academy Award nomination. Since that time, the parts have kept rolling in: from The Expendables (with Sly Stallone), a juicy part in Iron Man 2 and upcoming roles in Conan The Barbarian, Passion Play, Rambo V, The Savage Hunt and a possible follow-up with The Expendables sequel. Mickey Rourke is back and he is not about to let the great acting gigs slip through his fingers a second time.. A major fan of The Cell and The Fall, Rourke had no reservation about doing the Immortals when Tarshem approached him with the role as King Hyperion. "He's such a talented director," he says of Tarshem. "I would have done anything he offered."

MICKEY ROURKE ON...
Have you seen the finished print of Immortals yet?
"I saw it a few months ago, without the 3D glasses. I think I saw one of the cuts, but maybe not the final cut."
How did it turn out, compared to how you thought it would be?
"You don’t get bogged The technical stuff, it doesn’t really affect you that much unless you’re f**king mindless, you know? But what I signed up for is exactly what I saw, and all I can say is the reason I did the movie is, when I read this material, from watching Tarshem’s reels and knowing his background as a very visual, techy guy. He would sort of elevate the material, transcend the material to another level, with integrity. That’s all I was looking for. But they’ve gotta make their pound of flesh back, right? I don’t necessarily think I would have done this film if it wasn’t with a director that I instinctively… and from word of worth of mouth heard of Tarsem."

How did you find out about Tarshen, did you hear from word of mouth?
"Well, I saw his Nike commercial reel. I saw every commercial he ever did. He’s the same way as Ridley and Tony Scott. These guys, (David) Fincher and all them came out of commercials. You know they can light the shit out of something. They’re all hooked up with the latest high tech crap, and basically what they’re going to do is they’re going to take, let’s say a Greek mythology piece, and really give it a life of its own through their visual effects. And what I was very much pleased with was how uncomplicated it all was working with Tarsem because he was so prepared. It made my job easier, and he would give me minor adjustment and it would sort of take my performance to another level. Just with him, a little word or so he’d give me."
What kind of words would he give you?
"I’ll give you an example. If I had to go over and cut somebody’s nuts off, or cut their head off, he’d go over there and talk, "Just pick up the apple and take a bite out of it and smell it before you do that." Just little adjustments that really good directors know how to… He hired me because of the choices I make, and yet, of course I’m open to him giving me an adjustment which was intelligent. So it’s nice to work in a collaborative way, that way. And I have respect for the man. I think that’s what I can say. He’s like (Darren) Aronofsky an (Robert) Rodriguez. He’s a young guy who’s got a very large brain, that loves what he does. He’s very innovative and he takes risks, and he’s very intelligent."
Even though you’re the evil character in the movie, he seemed to sympathize with your character a lot.
Well, I always try to bring that to a character. It’s like when I did Ivan Vanko in Iron Man, I fought. You know, I explained to Justin Theroux, to the writer, and to Favreau, that I wanted to bring some other layers and colors, not just make this Russian a complete murderous revenging bad guy. And they allowed me to do that. Unfortunately, at Marvel just wanted a one dimensional bad guy, so most of the performance ended up the floor. You know, it's fucking too bad, but it’s their loss. If they want to make mindless comic book movies, then I don’t want to be a part of that. I don’t want to have to care so much and work so hard, and then fight them for intelligent reasoning, and just because they’re calling the shots. You know, I didn’t work for three months on the accent and all the adjustments and go to Russia just so I could end up on the floor. Because that can make somebody say at the end of the day, oh fuck them, I’m just going to mail it in. But I’m not that kind of guy. I’m never going to mail it in. But I’m saying it’s frustrating when that happens, when you care so much and you try so hard. At the end of the day you’ve got some nerd with a pocketful of money calling the shots. You know, Favreau didn’t call the shots. I wish he would have. And Theroux, we worked together to bring layers to that character, so, you know, I fight for that any time I’m playing like a bad guy. What made Henry Fonda so fantastic in the western that he did when he played a bad guy was what he brought to the character. All the goodness that he had in his face, or the moments that he had when he just wasn’t a one-dimensional bad guy. Because then, when he’s bad, you see that other color. You don’t want to always make him all black."

Your character is filled with a lot of rage, and it feels like justified rage.
"Well that’s what I say to everybody! I go, listen man. it’s territorial. This is his block. And you just don’t let sh*t happen on your block. And when this guy, Theseus, comes over, it’s like, 'Hey man, this guy’s overstepping his boundaries. He’s going to have to get an ass kicking. So I look at it like it’s territorial, so it’s personal. And also it’s personal because he’s overstepping his boundaries. William, that’s what I always try to fight to get across. If you need to get a one-dimensional bad guy, you know, go get somebody out of some TV show to do the fucking thing, you know what I’m saying? I mean, you don’t need to hire me. You know, back in acting school they always teach you, make bold choices and look for activities that are interesting. It doesn’t always have to be, this is the bad guy, this is the good guy. There is justification for the measures that he takes. I work very hard for those things to come across, but I’ve got to tell you, William, it’s always a fight. I usually lose the battle, but one of these days I’m going to do a bad guy, I hope, where they let those layers come across. I mean, you could look the great movie that Mel Gibson made, Braveheart. Now, from the other point of view he would have been a prick who was out of line. But from his people’s point of view he was justified. That’s all."
Are you still writing screenplays?
"Yeah, I’ve written. I’m getting ready to do one of them now, the story about the rugby player who came out and announced that he was gay. Gareth Thomas, the Welsh captain. That’s called The Beautiful Game. I also wrote a film that took me about twenty years to work on, called Wild Horses. It was about two brothers who don’t see each other for fifteen years, and then they get back together and it’s sort of a journey they go on. But there’s something going on with one of the brothers, and the journey kind of ends after a few weeks."

You signed on for Seven Psychopaths?
"No, I’m not in that. The producer was a jerk-off. He wanted me to work for slave wages, and it was like, he’s no Darren Aronofsky. If I want to go to work for nothing, then, you know what I’m talking about. When I go to work, I work very, very hard, and I’m not going to give that away for free. But then again there’s the happy medium. If they want to just all go, oh. But In Bruges was this and that. Well, maybe to some people, not to me. So they can play that arty-fartsy game with somebody else, you know what I’m saying? I’ll pick and choose who I want to go to work with for nothing. And all I can say at the end of the day is, their f**king loss."

Does that mean that you’re going to be in The Expendables 2 now?
"Well, that’s another thing. Listen, I did the first one because I felt that I owed Sly (Stallone) a favor. He gave me a job in Get Carter when I couldn’t f**king shine my shoes, you know what I’m saying. And that was that. The other thing around that, I had never said I was going to be in it. I think the producers announced it but nobody discussed it with me."
