Yeah Rourke’s speech with a crying and references to wrestlers and anal sex at the same time should be broadcast around the world. What a manly man.

That was the coolest thing heВґs done yet this season. Wow. Imagine all the depressing things Sean Penn would say about Prop 8, politics and the war in Iraq. I hope Jackman will throw his shoe at him if he does. But he wonВґt win so he wouldnВґt. Rourke owns his ass!

Doesn’t Chris Nolan have balls?! – He hired Eric Roberts to play Sal Maroni in The Dark Knight. Someone needs to give Chris Nolan credit for that!

You’re right Wendy…but I think Rourke was referring to a leading role where Roberts would carry the entire movie like Rourke did with the Wrestler. The average movie watcher probably didn’t even recognize Roberts and his role was far from substantial in the Dark Knight. Rourke had a substantial role in Sin City and many people didnt even recognize him there! It needs to be a lead where your face is on the cover and your name is above the title of the movie.

Kris, is Melissa Leo’s speech anywhere to be found? I’m curious to see it after your thoughts about it.
