Amy Adams Joins Wahlberg and Bale in The Fighter

Now that the filmmakers have finally settled on the two male leads for The Fighter, a lady love has been cast. The endearing Amy Adams will join Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale in the story about a famed Massachusetts boxer. Based on a true story, Wahlberg will play "Irish" Mickey Ward and Bale will play Ward's "trainer-brother" Dick Eklund, and the movie will follow "their early days on the rough streets of Lowell, Mass., through Eklund's battle with drugs and Ward's eventual world championship in London."

Amy Adams will take on the role of Charlene, "a tough, gritty bartender and former college high-jumper from Massachusetts who ends up dating Mickey." After playing so many cheerful, bright-eyed characters (ditzy Leslie Miller in Drop Dead Gorgeous, sweet Ashley in Junebug, optimistic Giselle in Enchanted, carefree Delysia in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day — and even the innocent Sister James in Doubt), I'm curious to see what Adams' "tough, gritty" character is like. Before this, however, we'll get yet another Adams fix when she appears this August with Meryl Streep in Julie and Julia.
