Comedy (Unintentionally Funny), Other Gems (TV Clip)
[ 6:13 - from YouTube ]
Mickey Rourke's speech after winning the Independent Spirit Award for Best Actor for "The Wrestler" is his best work since the film was shot. His brand of honesty is a television network's nightmare, but a viewer's dream. Full of F-bombs, a shout-out to Eric Roberts, and a few other four-letter words, Mickey says what he feels. Everyone deserves a second chance, and he's made the best of his so far.
