Mickey Rourke, master of the (ancient Greek) universe?
LOS ANGELES - Here’s a story that’s so quintessentially Mickey Rourke that it verges on the apocryphal. But he’s got the nasty scar to prove it. Rourke stars in “Immortals,’’ an action epic about gods and heroes in ancient Greece. The former boxer and perpetual tough guy is in a London pub. In walks what he takes to be gangsters. There’s a brief stare down. Of course they turn out to be fans. Of course they end up knocking back shots. And of course a fight breaks out - well, at least some hardcore arm wrestling.
