Which Pairing For The Fighter Is the Best? Over two years ago, there was news that Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon would star together in The Fighter, a drama about Boston fighter "Irish" Mickey Ward. Then, about seven months later, Matt Damon dropped out of the project and Brad Pitt was in talks to take his place in the role of Dicky. Now Pitt's out of the picture and Christian Bale is joining the cast as Dicky. Which pairing do you think is the best of these three?
