London: Rugby league footballer Keith Mason has landed a movie role alongside his new pal Mickey Rourke and `Kill Bill` actress Daryl Hannah .

The Castleford Tigers player, who met the `Iron Man 2` star at a London nightclub, will play Rourke`s tough bodyguard in the film, the Daily Star reported.

Mason, 31, said that someone landing a role after bumping into a film star is unheard of and he is still pinching himself.

To have a part alongside some of the best actors there`ll ever be is amazing, he asserted.
