ACTOR HANGS OUT WITH GANGSTERS

Is Mickey Rourke the George Raft of his generation? Like the '40s actor, Rourke is hanging out with gangsters, showing up Monday at the trial of alleged Mafia chieftain John Gotti with a member of the Gotti entourage. At one point Gotti waved to Rourke and the ponytailed actor told reporters, "We're friends." Rourke says he has talked with Gotti from time to time about "projects, what's happening in the city" and described him as "very intelligent and very generous with his time."
