Episode Description

Often compared to the legendary Marlon Brando for the smoldering power of his screen presence, Rourke has also gained a reputation for being an eccentric perfectionist, agreeing only to work on projects that meet his exacting standards. While his performances in Angel Heart, A Prayer for the Dying, and Barfly demonstrated the depth of his talent, his starring roles in the infamous 9 1/2 Weeks and Wild Orchid came under critical fire. Rourke has also been a pro boxer. He won all of his fights against minor opponents, but failed to achieve the national standing he sought.
