Mickey Rourke wanted to play Gareth Thomas is his bio-film, however Mickey feels he's getting too old to portray Gareth properly.
So he suggested another actor to play the role, Tom Hardy.
The Sun talked Gareth about the change:
Gareth said: "I was talking to Mickey yesterday and basically we're now talking to other big-name actors who could play the part instead.This could hot and good. Tom is a good actor and something to look at.
"We had talked about using computer-generated special effects with Mickey but we don't think that will be as realistic, so it's time to find someone new."
He revealed Batman star Tom Hardy is now in talks for the part that will feature Gareth's personal struggle when he came out as gay in 2009.
I hope he considers the role.
