Mickey Rourke on Monday will be stuck in cement, even ever so briefly. The actor is the 254th celebrity to have his feet and hands imprinted in the forecourt of Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard Monday morning. An honor that used to be exclusive to Hollywood’s elite has loosened the rules with actors and actresses who have upcoming movies being part of the festivities.
The first of two cementing ceremonies this week (Twilight cast members will be cemented on Thursday) the actor will be in good company. On screen pals Freida Pinto and Luke Evans from his latest film, "Immortals” will be on stage to share moments about the actor with the crowd. In addition to the wet cement, Rouke gets to take home a plaque to share with his love ones.
Expecting hundreds of people, the opportunity to see a movie star live is hardly to be missed. Crowding around the ceremony, it is free to watch in the general public area and afterwards, the fans can check out the wet cement as the final cast is left to dry.
Mickey Rourke’s screen career has been extensive over the past 30 years with the latest films "Iron Man 2" and "The Expendables" reviving his career and putting his name in front of fans once again.
