We knew Marquee doorman Wass Stevens had a bit part in Darren Aronofsky’s highly touted flick The Wrestler (he appears briefly in the trailer), but when we caught it over the holiday, we were surprised to see that Armin Amiri of Socialista also plays the role of Dr. Moayedizadeh, who tells Mickey Rourke he’s washed up. (Another New York Diet alum who makes an appearance: Ajay Naidu.) Obviously, Aronofsky is going to have no trouble getting into all the clubs. But seriously, guy — why no Fabrizio?
