Crowe Finds Challenger In Boxing Movie

Actor CRAIG BIERKO is poised to land a major role in celebrated director RON HOWARD's new boxing movie CINDERELLA MAN - opposite Hollywood heavyweight RUSSELL CROWE.

The film tells the tale of real-life boxing champ JIM BRADDOCK - to be played by Crowe - who made a comeback to provide for his family during the 1930s Depression in America.

If Bierko - who featured in THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR and THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT - signs up for the film, he'll play MAX BAER, Braddock's toughest challenger, a world heavyweight champion renowned for having killed two men in the ring.
