It's Beauty and the Beast as these pictures show of Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox.

Mickey, 57, and Megan, 23, are filming "Passion Play" in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The mis-matched pair play star-crossed lovers in a movie which Megan says "is not a typical love story."

We'll say.

"Passion Play," features Megan as a caged circus freak with wings growing out of her back and Mickey plays her savior.

Mickey's hardly being cast against type. He plays a down-on-his-luck trumpet player.

All in all, it looks like Mickey is back on Hollywood's A-List again after spending years in a sort of Tinsel Town exile.

Mickey, whose star turn in "The Wrestler," garnered him an Oscar nomination last year will also be one of the presenters at Sunday's Golden Globes.

And the infamous rabble rouser even says he's settling down a bit with his Russian bombshell Elena Kuletskaya.
