Weiner Gets Aronofsky for ‘The Wrestler’

As part of his increasingly sports-themed mayoral campaign, Anthony Weiner is not only screening the sports-themed movie The Wrestler at his fund-raiser tonight, he’s getting the director to show up.

The invitation notes there will be a Q&A with Darren Aronofsky after the film. (My question would be: “What wrestler name would you give to the mayoral candidates?”)

The P.R. contact on the invite is Lisa Hernandez Gioia, who began fund-raising for Weiner’s campaign awhile ago. She is also the wife of City Councilman Eric Gioia, who also has famous friends.
