    I just read that Mickey Rourke was originally offered the part of Butch Coolidge in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, the part of the boxer which eventually went to Bruce Willis.

    Who do you think would have done a better job in the part?

    I personally am disappointed that Rourke turned down this part, as I think he would have been far more suited for the role. I found Willis’s acting in Pulp Fiction one of the few things about the film I dislike. Had Rourke taken the part, it wouldn’t have surprised me if he was able to score an Oscar nomination (probably over Paul Scofield for Quiz Show), along side his co-stars Travolta, Jackson and Thurman.
