Mickey Rourke stars in Tarsem Singh's epic mythological fantasy "Immortals," opposite Henry Cavill, Luke Evans and Kellan Lutz, as King Hyperion. Rourke also recently completed shooting "Passion Play," directed by Mitch Glazer, in which he stars opposite Megan Fox.

Mickey Rourke, one of today's few true method actors and a graduate of New York's Actor's Studio, is this generation's classic working actor.

In 2008 Rourke burst back onto the Hollywood scene with a seminal performance as a washed-up professional wrestler in Darren Aronofsky's award-winning drama "The Wrestler." The role earned Rourke an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor and wins for Best Actor at the Golden Globe Awards, BAFTAs and Independent Spirit Awards. The film was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

Rourke's career is characterized by his ability to create riveting performances and to leave indelible impressions on audiences. His extraordinary list of feature credits includes John Madden's "Killshot," Tony Scott's "Domino" and "Man on Fire," Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City" and "Once Upon a Time in Mexico," Larry Charles' "Masked and Anonymous," Steve Buscemi's "Animal Factory" and Francis Ford Coppola's "The Rainmaker."

Rourke earned a place for himself in Hollywood with his stellar ability to mesmerize audiences in earlier films, including Michael Cimino's "Desperate Hours," Alan Parker's "Angel Heart," Mike Hodges' "A Prayer for the Dying," Adrian Lyne's "Nine ½ Weeks," Cimino's "Year of the Dragon," Stuart Rosenberg's "The Pope of Greenwich Village," Barry Levinson's "Diner," Lawrence Kasdan's "Body Heat," Francis Ford Coppola's "Rumble Fish," Cimino's "Heaven's Gate" and Steven Spielberg's "1941."

Rourke recently starred in the blockbuster sequel "Iron Man 2," directed by Jon Favreau, with Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson. He was also seen in "The Expendables," directed by Sylvester Stallone and co-starring Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
