Mickey Rourke on role as gay Welsh rugby star
Hollywood star Mickey Rourke has been talking about his plans to play former Wales rugby union captain Gareth Thomas in a biopic of his life.
Thomas, who now plays rugby league for the Crusaders, announced he was gay in 2009 and has been in discussions with a scriptwriter.
Rourke was in Cardiff for the Millennium Magic rugby league matches over the weekend.
He told BBC Wales Today's Claire Summers of getting to grips with the Welsh accent, the physical demands of the role - and his first rugby-related injury.
