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.)
