Riding Shotgun in Mickey Rourke’s Office

December 15, 2008

Howard started off the show telling a story about Mickey Rourke, who at one point was operating out of an “office” that was really a car parked in front of Giuseppe Franco’s salon in LA. One morning Mickey cold-called Howard from the “office” to offer him a part in “some movie” about 4 guys from Long Island who hang out in a diner. When Howard said he wasn’t sure about the idea, Mickey handed the phone over to the project’s director on the phone – who was sitting in the passenger seat – but not before he yelled all kinds of obscenities at the guy.
