    Can't say I know any of his work....but man Mickey Rourke is in this too?

    Look at his resume? From 2000-2005 he is in a total of 11 films...enter Sin City in 2005 and his career is on fire. IMDB has him listed with 7 films in 2010 alone.

    And the Wrestler was awesome....depressing as heck and from what my hard core wrestling fan friends say pretty close to reality...

    Is creativity so lacking in Hollywood these days that it's necessary to remake everything?

    Ah, when I saw the thread title, I thought it would be about the fantastic and hilariously funny (at least to us west brits) books by James Bibby. Seriously though, Mickey Rourke????? I foresee a casting director position available for the Conan The Barbarian film in the near future

    I hope they're gonna beef this kid up to play Conan! Considering it's in being filmed in Bulgaria, they'll have him juicing twelve time a day! AND WHY THE HELL IS MY WIFE WATCHING THE JET GAME!!!

    I never heard of that guy so I had to google him, and you are right, he needs to beef up to play Conan properly.

    To be clear. Mickey Rourke is NOT playing Conan. He is {IIRC} Conan's dad.

    Robert E. Howard not only wrote several books about Conan, he created a whole ancient world history. There is plenty of source material for a GOOD Conan movie that does not copy the movies from the 1980s.

    Conan was described by Howard as being the same size as the crusader Cormac Fitzgeoffrey, another Howard creation. 6'2" and 210#. Momoa is 6'3".....

    According to the link Jason is 6'5" not that it matters. Thats big, I hope he gets more cut up. I always envisioned Conan like the comic book creation. Or like Boris Vallejo's drawings.

    Seriously you have to be joking? This guy better start eating some roids quick. Also Mickey rourke as conans father? This movie sounds like a flop already. I think i'll do myself a favor and save my money.

    1) Howard described Conan as limber and strong. Not muscle bound.

    2) Mickey Rourke is an established actor. With a pretty good resume.

    3) How much have the films you have appeared in grossed?

    The dude's look is too nancy boy to play Conan.

    Maybe the Leonidas guy in "300" can do it.

    I believe he has a couple kids with that whack-job Lisa Bonet. I just can't like a guy that is attracted to chicks that are buckets full of crazy.

    Oh, and as for being a "barbarian" well, this is the dude that literally couldn't hack having a head full of dreadlocks for "Stargate Atlantis". He said it gave him a sore neck, his own hair! Boo hoo! He cut it off between seasons and the producers made him wear this laughable wig despite his womanly protests about hair being too heavy and hurting his delicate neck. This, my friends, is Conan. :upeyes:

    Why would he want to ruin his career?
