Rourke’s new nickname: Half Day Mickey

Mickey Rourke’s co-stars have nicknamed him Half Day Mickey.

Mickey Rourke’s co-stars have nicknamed him Half Day Mickey, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

The actor has been working on new movie 13 but had to take so much time off to promote The Wrestler that his castmates, including Control star Sam Riley, Nil By Mouth actor Ray Winstone and rapper 50 Cent gave him the jokey monik­er. Sam revealed: “He was always jetting back and forth so we called him Half Day Mickey. “He’d always p— off and do whatever it was he was meant to be doing somewhere else. I think he really feels lucky and he’s just milking it for all its worth. And good on him.”

Rourke wasn’t the only member of the 13 cast to be given a nickname. Sam added to Total Film: “Ray calls 50 Cent Two Bob. He’d go, ‘Which one’s Two Bob, which one’s Two Bob, Sammy?’ ‘He’s the big one behind you mate!’”
