Birthday: Sep 16, 1952

Birthplace: Schenectady, New York, USA

Emerging onto the film landscape loaded with talent and promise, actor Mickey Rourke first made his presence known with a scene-stealing turn as an arsonist in the erotic noir "Body Heat" (1981) before spending the next few years playing roles that would be looked back upon as the genesis of his greatness. His performances in "Diner" (1982) and "Rumble Fish" (1983) were clear signs that the world was witnessing the emergence of another James Dean or Robert De Niro. After several quiet years, Rourke reemerged in several small but prominent turns, culminating in a full-fledged career comeback with his acclaimed performances in "Sin City" (2005) and "The Wrestler" (2008). Thanks to his resurgence, Rourke was able to secure roles in blockbusters like "Iron Man 2" (2010) and "The Expendables" (2010), which helped rekindle his long-burning promise.
