New York, March 15 (ANI): American actor Mickey Rourke has bagged yet another good role as the Russian villain in Iron Man 2, after being nominated for an Oscar for his work in the film The Wrestler.

A report published by the website deadlinehollywooddaily.com says that the producers had earlier offered Rourke just 250,000 dollars for this role.

However, they significantly increased the money offer after Rourkes agent, David Unger, played hardball.

According to the New York Post, Rourke was also being considered for a villainous role in Sonys Spider-Man 4.

Rourke has also been offered a role by Sylvester Stallone in the fifth Rambo film.

He will reportedly play the baddie in the flick, which is due to be filmed later this year.

The actor will also start filming Stallones new thriller The Expendables, alongside Ben Kingsley, Sandra Bullock,Jet Li, Jason Statham and Forest Whitaker. (ANI)
