How Far Will Actors Go?
It’s not usual for actors to undergo some changes when taking on a new role. Sometimes they gain weight. Other times they have to lose weight or pack on the muscles. This actor is taking a much more drastic step for his next movie role.
Actor Mickey Rourke is taking lessons to master a Welsh accent and also is having his two front teeth removed. Why? So he can more realistically play the Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas in a new movie about him. Talk about really getting into the role. Wouldn’t it be less painful to just go with CGI special effects?
