“Getting Mickey Rourke to wear the fucking fanny pack was a bitch. ‘Mickey, you’ve got to wear the fanny pack. They all wear fanny packs. You’ve got to wear the fanny pack.’ Can you picture Mickey Rourke, who is Mr. Cool and Mr. Macho putting on a fanny pack? It’s like, ‘Mickey, every wrestler we’ve met has a fanny pack. You’ve got to wear the fanny pack.” I got him for one shot to do it. That’s a shot that’s in the movie.”
