Variety reports Marisa Tomei has signed on to star opposite Mickey Rourke in Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler. In the film, Rourke plays a retired, over-the-hill wrestler who moves in with a stripper (Tomei) and her son. Yet another serious role as a stripper pried from the lacquered nails of Pamela Anderson. Don't worry, baby; you'll get your chance one day. Maybe in a direct-to-video sequel with Hulk Hogan, or is that too appropriate?
