Mickey is currently filming "Iron Man 2" and has a number of other projects in the works, including Sylvester Stone's "The Expendables."

He became an awards season darling earlier this year after a long break from Hollywood thanks to his starring performance as Randy "The Ram" Robinson in "The Wrestler," a role that notched him a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.
