Mickey Rourke's recent comeback has certainly increased his amount of public appearances, and this is something I am really grateful for. I had a ball watching him cruise the awards circuit during his campaign for The Wrestler. His speeches at the BAFTAs and the Independent Spirit Awards were some of the most entertaining in recent memory, and I personally think the Academy blew it big time when they snubbed this guy, if only for the memorable speech he would have given.

Anyway, he is now making the rounds for Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2 and he seems to be receiving good reviews for his performance, although his screen time may be less than what the hype has suggested. Below is a brief segment from his appearance Monday night on The Late Show with David Letterman. He discusses his preparation for the role of Ivan Vanko, which included a visit to a Russian prison. These are two and a half minutes that you will surely enjoy.

Iron Man 2 opens this Friday. A long-awaited new trailer for Christopher Nolan's Inception will be playing in front of it.
