Mickey Rourke featurette at Awards Daily

Posted by · 9:41 am · January 7th, 2009

“I don’t know if I could ever do it again,” Mickey Rourke says in this just-up exclusive featurette at Awards Daily.  “Just something magical happened.”  I love that.  And I must say, Fox Searchlight is really working this thing hard this year.  The studio’s passion is always evident, but this season, with considerably less funds and certainly not-so-typical awards bait to work, I have to say the hard work is REALLY showing.  I just spent an hour or so with Marisa Tomei yesterday and she couldn’t agree more, of course.  She’s on the bubble right now, but as she told me, “it’s nice to be in the mix.”  I’ll have that interview up in due time, but here’s AD’s Rourke piece:

And in case you missed it, here’s our Marisa Tomei featurette from last month.

    this is the best movie i’ve seen in years. i didn’t think anything would top the dark knight this year. i hate the way it’s being advertised, though. super spoilerful, and makes it seem more sentimental than it really is.. i recommend you don’t watch this unless you’ve seen the movie.

    Agree…and The Wrestler did it with barely a budget. Much preferred The Wrestler to TDK.

    Two thumbs way up!
