Mickey Rourke May Have Found a New Career in Rapping Over Video-Game Credits

In the video game Rogue Warrior, which came out this week, Mickey Rourke provides the voice for the trigger-happy hero, Dick Marcinko. And as anyone who's played a first-person shooter game knows, the lines these characters have usually consist of grunts, curses, and screams. Rogue Warrior is no exception. Only there's something a little different about this game. As the closing credits roll, an expletive-laden slow jam starts playing with lyrics composed entirely of Rourke's lines. The result is stunning. Rourke didn't win an Oscar for The Wrestler, but the Academy should really figure out how to give him something for this.
