After years of working in relative obscurity in small movie and TV parts after he retired from boxing and returned to acting, Mickey Rourke struck it big with his role as Randy "The Ram" Robinson in 'The Wrestler,' earning an Oscar nomination and starring roles as Ivan Vanko in 'Iron Man 2' and as King Hyperion in 'Immortals.'

Now, according to a report at 'Deadline Hollywood,' Rourke's name is being bandied about for parts in two upcoming Tony Scott projects: a lead in 'Potzdamer Platz,' about the New Jersey mob, and -- get this -- as the star of a film on the Hells Angels motorcycle club that Scott has been tinkering with for more than a decade.
