ET Flashback '84: Mickey Rourke


Mickey Rourke is back on the big screen starring opposite Megan Fox and Bill Murray in 'Passion Play,' and we're flashing back to 1984, when the star was getting raves for his performance in 'The Pope of Greenwich Village.'

Asked what he thought of the serious drama going up against the bigger, more high-profile popcorn movies at the time, the handsome star told ET, "Well, you know, you've got your audience that's going to see Indiana Jones and all that crap, and so I think what we did was something that we wanted to do. And the people who like to see a certain type of movie – it's like listening to, what's that guy's name that's on the soap that sings? Rick Springfield, then listening to Bruce Springsteen. Do you know what I'm talking about? All right."
