Mickey Rourke Is Only Worth $250,000

Marvel's starting the bid on Mickey Rourke's steroid ass for a role in Iron Man 2 at a measly $250,000!

The Wrestler would be playing the villainous Crimson Dynamo in the sequel and Marvel is starting the offer at $250,000.

That's only 6 digits!

It's probably because they heard he was canoodling with professional attentionwhore Bai Ling. In this town, it's all about who you know!

Marvel seems pretty intent on fudging up their bread winner. They fired Terence Howard and now they're lowballing Rourke.

Blame the economy?

Mickey's agent is trying to get more $$$$$.

He should just be happy to be getting work!

  6. 6

  7. 7

    Dude one Golden Globe after 10+ years of being a loser doesn't constitute a large salary….not only that isn't he an asshole and hard to work with?

    Re: BBBoricua loves Angels & Demons – Hey beautiful - I love the new avie - its gorgeous - is it a self-portrait? (o:



  9. 9

    not all actors are obsessed with 7 figures, perez. if the role is good in a good project, and an actor is in it for the right reasons, they will take it. even if they are "only" getting $250,000. which i would take any day!



  10. 10

    he shouldn't be glad to be getting "work" he is talented and he should get what is fair. Is it because he's not a young 20something that he's not getting paid well?



  11. 11

    Pu$$y actors fucked up in June and now have no legs to stand on! STUPID FUCKERS!

    Re: Mistress – SI! HOLA MISTRESS! AN OLD FRIEND RETURNED SO I STAYED AROUND A TAD LONGER! :mrgreen:



  24. 24

    Fuck you, he's making more than you are!! The sad thing about it is that even with his face completely fucked up royally from plastic surgery, he's hotter than you are. That's pitiful. You ugly fuck!



  25. 25

    I think he is worth much more. Maybe he should be happy that he simply has work…but I think with this Oscar nom, he will be just fine.



  26. 26

    Re: Mistress – Hey, Mistress. Glad you like it.Yes, it is…. LOL!
    I have missed you! Hope everything is OK.



  27. 27

    Mickey O'Rourke is a very fine actor and deserves a good salary unlike some of the fools you promote.



  28. 28

    Re: the last star – You too Star - it's nice to be back. When does your football season end over there - ours starts in March - cant wait!!!!



  29. 29

  30. 30

    lucky he's getting work? are you serious?? he was just nominated for a freaking oscar for christ sake!



  31. 31

    Re: Hot Monkey Love Obama Style! – Hey Monkey - yes I hear a whisper that MIAR is back - is that true??? It's been so long, I wondered if she'd find here way back to the pink room. BTW your blog sounds as if it's taking off - I'll ask Mamajud to send me the addy. (o:

    Re: brian.wiz@gmail.com – HEY CAN I EMAIL YOU?

    Re: Mistress – I GOT A VIBE EARLIER AND ASKED IF MIAR WAS ON THE THREAD AND YES OUR GOOD BUDDY IS BACK! MAMAJUD HAS MY EMAIL ADDRESS SO SHE CAN SEND YOU THE LINK…I ADDED IT HERE BUT ASSUME SHOWED UP! jajajaja



  34. 34

    He deserves several million for it…but if they want to go cheap I'll do it for under 250k….some folks think I look like Mickey…and I've worked with several A listers…
    Though I'd rather Mickey did the role and I played another nemesis

    perez your so wrong on this one…mickey rourkes performance in The Wrestler, was so inspiring



  36. 36

    Re: Hot Monkey Love Obama Style! – I saw when that happended. I cant believe he did that - not sure what he was hoping to achieve. Is MIAR back as herself or another nick?

  37. aj says – reply to this


    37

    I haven't seen The Wrestler but I gotta give a shout out to Mickey. He doensn't give one single fuck, obviously, and I love that.



  38. 38

    So, why would u pay him any more. He has not proved himself at the box office. The wrestler did not make much money. It is not even that good of a movie and he is getting praised for playing himself. A lonely and pathetic person.

    Re: Mistress – #5 JUST FOLLOW THE AVIE IT'S FOR THE OLD SCHOOL CROWD TO FOLLOW! HAVE A GREAT AUSSIE DAY…ADIOS!

    Re: Hot Monkey Love Obama Style! – OH WELL! HAVE FUN! :)



  42. 42

    jesus perez, get off this man's balls. he probably wasn't even talking about you in that one quote you freaked out about. you're so full of yourself. mickey rourke is also not a homophone, he's a prop 8 supporter, so get off his ass and stop being a biased douche!



  43. 43

    and i don't know what you're talking about where he should be "lucky" to get work, he's amazingly talented. and unlike you and most of hollywood, money isn't everything.
    your attacks on micke rourke are so superficial, materialistic and petty. just because he doesn't look like your sluts lady kaka and katy perry…ugh



  44. 44

    Re: tom951 – to tom951, the amount of money a movie makes in no way speaks to how 'good' the movie is. believe me, there's plenty of shit movies that makes millions of dollars- ever heard of high school musical?, or 27 dresses????



  45. 45

    Re: Mistress – 'Tiz I! I wanted to swear this shit off but ….. lol



  46. 46

    So what, he makes ONE good come back movie and you think people should be shelling out the dough for him. He's not the star of the movie. He gets enough $250,000 roles and he's on easy street again.



  47. 47

    Damn, and he was HOT back in the day. Someone should have stop him from getting plastic surgery.



  48. 48

    Mario, with all of the lawsuits filed against you in the past, you would think that you'd be familiar with libel. Mickey has stated categorically that he didn't use steroids while preparing for "The Wrestler", yet you continually accuse of him of using them. I guess you should probably give your legal team a heads up to prepare them for your next lawsuit due to your irresponsible "journalism".

    Was he hot? I thought he was in a fire or something. (I am being totally serious)



  50. 50

    Terence Howard was great in IM



  51. 51

    Terence Howard mmmm

  52. fiera says – reply to this


    52

    He's an amazing actor and should be paid more, but needs a stylist badly- That suit is terrible!!!



  53. 53

    Ummmm….I'LL take the role for $250,000! What is it…3 or 4 months of work? Shit, $250,000 is more than I make in 5 years!!!



  54. 54

    Well, I'm glad he's back!! he has always been a great actor - Rumblefish!!!! maybe it's $250,000 upfront with a cut of the profits which is what a lot of actors are now negotiating. It's a better idea considering how much some films can make.



  55. 55

    This person is a stinking, dripping sphincter…I am gonna call Sammy Uranus Jr. to probe this motherfucker till his tonsils are tickled from the inside out……What a mentally challenged twit!… he's great because he can play himself in the wrestler? Hollyweird is all laughing at him behind his back.. the town carny makes a comeback…weeeeeeeee haw! That skank he's with swapped sticky carcinogenic spit with that walking rotting human sack of skin and pus…now make a movie about that if you want a real horror flick!



  56. 56

    what a joke!!! he was great in the wrestler!!



  57. 57

    Perez got an offer of $250 to publish his suck-ass book. He could barely buy a wheel chair with that after Mickey breaks his fucking legs.



  58. 58

    Re: Pantagruel – Hahahaha!!!!! Love it!!!!!



  59. 59

    Re: Pantagruel – Oh…..and no one goes to his stupid parties either!!!



  60. 60

    Well I guess I won't be seeing Iron Man 2. I don't want to watch any film that shows this hatchet-face for two hours.



  61. 61

    Favreau needs to get his ass in there on behalf of Rourke. $250K is BS for a broke yet legendary actor finally getting his act together.



  62. 62

    perez, did you actually see the wrestler? give the guy a break.

    why is it ok for robert downey jr. to be the only one to come out on top after fucking up time and time again?

    rourke is this years comeback kid and he's earned it so pipe the fuck down.

    63

    It is 2009….the world has changed….sounds like a decent salary for a few months work. I'll do it.



  64. 64

    He could be getting a piece of the cut, though. Fantastic actor anyway. He'll get his share of big money roles after he gets his Oscar.

    Mickey Rourke is a Golden Globe winner, you know it, you watched his peers give him a standing ovation when he went up to accept his award.
    *
    Why don't you just stick to reporting about Paris Hilton. She's in a league you can comprehend.
    *



  66. 66

    I wouldn't pay Rourke $2.50 to be in a movie.



  67. 67

    He is a great actor and I can´t understand why so many people always pick on his face or his hand in the waistband. It´s HIS waistband isn´t it? And if somebody isn´t a looser it´s definitely Mickey. After all that he was going through (selv-made or not) it´s a great accomplishment to come up again. AND THAT IN HOLLYWOOD!!!
