The Wrestler clip

I recommend watching the following video with the volume turned down low, because the din from a bunch of screaming fans, filtered through a shoddy mic on an amateur DV cam does not equal music to your ears, trust me. But thankfully what youre looking at is at least compelling, especially if youre a fan of Mickey Rourke, Darren Aronofsky, pro wrestling, or setting up film shots. This was taken by a fan during the filming of a wrestling match at a real independent pro wrestling show in Philly for Aronofskys next film THE WRESTLER. If the beginning bores you, let it run for a bit and theres a nice pay off. If youve been following this film, youll know that Rourke plays Randy The Ram Robinson, a washed up wrestler with a bad heart who takes one more slam at past glory. Rourke sure does have the look down. He looks like a cross between The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels and Jake the Snake.

Extra Tidbit: In case you haven't checked the site fanatically today like you should, Marisa Tomei has been cast as a stripper with a presumed heart of gold. Also presumed: she'll be topless in this.

I don't know how...

... this will fit into Aronofsky oeuvre, but I LOVE the man (well, not -that- kind of love).

Besides, I think it's extremely cool that he allows people to record with their cellphones and then film then back. It fits the story, and I'll be looking for that bit in the final film.

It must be the 2nd day of shooting: Darren is almost beard-less.
