Filming The Wrestler


Baker Theater
Blackwell St. - Dover, NJ
I was able to sneak this photo while I was working as a crowd extra in the filming of The Wrestler this past weekend.  That's Mickey Rourke on the left as Randy "The Ram" Robinson shaking hands with Crestwood's own Jon Trosky as the referee.  Trosky wrestles on the indy scene as "Supreme" Lee Great.  Between them in the background is former WCW and WWE wrestler Ernest "The Cat" Miller playing the role of The Ayatollah.

Director of The Wrestler


I'm honored to have had the opportunity to work on the filming of The Wrestler.  At the end of the day, director Darren Aronofsky took a moment to speak with us and take photos.

To prevent anyone from believing that this video was shot in the future and sent back in time, the editors have helpfully added that this was recorded earlier.

McDonaldland Cookies


McDonaldland Cookies
I haven't come across these since I was a kid in the 80's, but the McDonald's near the mall in my hometown had them for sale.  They're shortbread cookies in the shape of Birdie, Grimace, the Hamburgler, the Fry Kids and Ronald McDonald.  They have a faint lemon flavor and are sweet, but not too sweet.
