Mickey Rourke in Sly Stallone's The Expendables

Its been a while since we last saw anything from The Expendables, which I believe is already finished shooting (and if it isn't yet, it will be finished soon). However, Empire has the newest shot, featuring a burly Mickey Rourke tattooing the back of Sylvester Stallone. Rourke has been showing up in movies left and right since winning everyone over again in The Wrestler. I don't know if he just has a brief cameo in the movie (and this is it that we're seeing) or whether he'll show up later on, tattooing more of the Expendables team. Either way, this is pretty damn cool to see, so check out the photo below and more info as well. Dig it!

Mickey Rourke in The Expendables

Empire explains that Rourke is the "arms dealer and part-time tattooist" named Tool who is inking Barney Ross, the character Stallone plays, with the skull and raven tattoo seen on the poster. So he's an arm dealer, that must mean we might see more of him when he arms up everyone at other times in the movie (or so I hope that happens). We're also hoping we get to see a trailer for this sometime soon, but we haven't heard anything about when that'll show up online. And as always, you can check out other photos and video from earlier. Of course, stay tuned for more on The Expendables as it arrives! Is everyone still excited for this?

    Dear Sirs, Please fix your website. You have posted a picture claiming to be Mickey Rourke which is clearly Whoopi Goldberg. Thank you.
  • Shelby

    If there's one thing I love, it's shirtless old men.
  • You guys will be lucky to be half the man Stallone is at 60, physique-wise. Cash wise, thats a given, ha!
  • zach s

  • Sterooooooooiiiiiiiiddds and plastic surgery ruuuuuuuuulllle! This'll be funny, surely it's sponsored by Parabolan.
  • Sabes
    Stallone's face looks so bad. >.< My bf told me a long while back about the casting in this movie, I called him a liar till I saw the list myself. With that alone, I have to go see it, even if it ends up looking horrible.
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Seriously, there are so many action stars in this movie, I'll just HAVE to see it. I agree, tho, Stallone's face looks terrible. Well, Rourke's is not much better. >.<
  • nate
    Ummm... Its called 'aging' people. As you get older, you change. Health class, anyone? Shit. I doubt any of you lazy m.fers will look half a decent when you hit this age. It would require more than sitting on your ass, critisizing others. Look into it.
  • SloppyCronkite
    @ Harold: You know, anyone can look like Stallone at 60. You just need the human growth hormones he takes =)
  • SuicidalOptimist
    #19 Get off your high horse. "'s called aging people!" No shit. Why are so greatly taking offense to this? For your information, I wasn't saying they look terrible due to their age. It was more directed at the face-lifts-gone-wrong both actors have to deal with. Rourke more than Stallone, tho. Calm down, old man.
  • Sabes
    You tell him #21!!
  • #21 and #22 are the same person. I just IP checked. Sad ass people having to use fake accounts to up themselves, hahaha it's depressing really. And #19 is right. 1/2 of you will be lucky to be anywhere near Stallone at 60.
  • Mega Jet Jaguar
    Yo Age-rian, I did it!

  • Voice of Reason
    Actually, the tatts just might cover up Slys veiny body.
  • JCal
    Isn't that the same haircut Mickey has in Iron Man 2??
  • SuicidalOptimist
    #23 Lol, you fail at IP checking. While it is true that I know poster #22 personally, we are in 2 completely different states. And let me tell you, #22 and I would be devasted if we were anywhere near Stallone at 60 looks-wise, seeing how we're both female. Sad ass people having nothing better to do than actually comparing IP's of total strangers, on a topic that has nothing to do with them personally. Hahaha, it's depressing really.
  • phlewf
    I don't know about the rest of you jokers, but I think this movie will rock!!!
  • TheSaint

  • filmfanII
    YOU tell-em # 19! And btw, this picture came out like 10 days ago. ( old news)
  • Clover
    I am with you #8! I dig that site as well.....and your posts don't get deleted if you disagree with the "host". ( and you can expose Rogen for the hack he is and everyone gets to see your post!)
  • marica somma
    probably sly decided to remove his wrinkle because of his shocking wife. you all are very funny, nice to read these comments. !jelous, probably,!very jelous! a men without wrinkle is like a body without heart. also because i'm 40. and only my daughter has no wrinkles.
  • Stig
    Mark my word; This will kick ass! Men all over the globe will want to see this movie. It's likely to be the most popular movie with men next year while Tim Burton's Wonderland will probably be only big with women.
  • sam

I can't wait to see THE EXPENDABLES featuring Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Steve Austin, Randy Couture and more! In one film. Crazy. I can almost smell the testosterone!!! Roll on 2010 and... BRING ON THE EXPLOSIONS!!! If you search for a site full of Expendables videos & pictures can suggest you this one: EXPENDABLES.
