Actor Mickey Rourke is to voice “battle-tested Richard ‘Demo Dick’ Marcinko, a real-life Navy SEAL and founder of the elite SEAL Team 6,” in Rebellion’s Rogue Warrior.

“Mickey Rourke was our first choice to play Marcinko in Rogue Warrior,” said producer Todd Vaughn.

“He absolutely, 100 percent captures Marcinko’s raw and gritty personality.”

But does he go to Brazil and have sex with Carré Otis? It’s the question on everyone’s lips.

Bethesda Softworks Announces Award-Winning Actor
Mickey Rourke to Play Lead Role in Rogue Warrior

Oscar-Nominated Actor to Provide Voice Work in Game Based
on the Novels by Richard “Demo Dick” Marcinko

April 27, 2009 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, is pleased to announce that actor Mickey Rourke will voice the prominent role of the irreverent, battle-tested Richard “Demo Dick” Marcinko, a real-life Navy SEAL and founder of the elite SEAL Team 6, in Rogue Warrior™.

“Mickey Rourke was our first choice to play Marcinko in Rogue Warrior,” said Todd Vaughn, Executive Producer of Rogue Warrior. “He absolutely, one-hundred percent captures Marcinko’s raw and gritty personality.”

Rourke has appeared in numerous well-known films over the years, including “Rumble Fish”, “Nine ½ Weeks” and “Sin City”. Most recently, Rourke has enjoyed critical acclaim for his role as Randy “The Ram” Robinson in “The Wrestler” for which he won a Golden Globe and a Spirit award in the ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ category and earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Rogue Warrior was inspired by Marcinko’s New York Times bestseller of the same name and his subsequent novels based loosely on his own past military experiences. Playing as “Demo Dick” Marcinko, you are sent on a clandestine operation to disrupt a suspected North Korean ballistic missile program. Soon into the mission, you uncover a conspiracy and must covertly enter the USSR to destroy a technology that could change the balance of geopolitical power, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake.

Rogue Warrior is currently under development for the Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows® at Rebellion Studios and is scheduled for release in Q4 2009.

    Crikey. I went to see that game – and Dick – in 2006. I thought it had come out already and sunk without trace.

    Not to be confused with Rebellion’s previous Rogue Trooper game, presumably.
