Rourke Knocks Cage Out of the Ring


Mickey Rourke will star in The Wrestler, the indie drama that Darren Aronofsky will direct in January, reports Variety.

Rourke will play Randy “The Ram” Robinson,” a role that Nicolas Cage had reportedly been set to play.

Aronofsky and Robert Siegel wrote the script for The Wrestler, about an over-the-hill grappler who returns to the ring for one last shot at glory.
