Mickey Rourke teases Jason Statham (and Jimmy Fallon) for always wearing beige

Posted on

The Expendables’ Mickey Rourke stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, and the odd couple was so entertaining, I would’ve listened to them talk for an hour. I particularly enjoyed when Rourke razzed Fallon for wearing a light-colored suit. “He dresses worse than you,” Rourke said, referring to his costar and good friend Jason Statham. “Or maybe you guys have the same wardrobe. I make fun of Jason because he always wears beige.” Later, Rourke explained how Stallone tailored the dialogue to each actor. For Statham, it was a dry sense of humor. “A beige sense of humor,” he said.

Watch a clip below. Rourke, who took a small part in the film to repay Stallone for giving him a job years ago when he couldn’t get work, also reveals the first thing he heard when he got to the set. “I see Stallone marchin’ around goin’, ‘Just say the f***in’ line.’ Meanwhile, the guy he’s saying it to could squash him like a bug. I’m like, I don’t know what Stallone had for breakfast today, but he’s not gonna make it to lunch.” (Our guess? Dolph Lundgren.)
