According to E! News and Access Hollywood, Mickey Rourke - nominated for an Oscar for his role in critical hit The Wrestler - is going to be stepping into the ring to wrestle for real at World Wrestling Entertainment's big "Wrestlemania" event this April.

Rourke even let slip who he would be wrestling against, telling a reporter that WWE star Chris Jericho "better get in shape".

While we're all for seeing Rourke do a flying Ram Jam off the top rope and bashing someone with his Oscar, this whole stunt might be taking the method acting thing a bit too far.
