The Wrestler is looking for new digs.

Movie star and former boxer Mickey Rourke reportedly checked out a gut-renovated three-bedroom at 148 West 28th Street. The full-floor unit, which also has a chef’s kitchen, is $11,750 a month. Rourke didn’t act fast enough, however, and the unit was rented to someone else.

Rourke’s second option is a $10,000-per-month listing at 14 East 33rd Street. The actor already visited the apartment since it hit the market earlier this week, the New York Post reported.

The star is in New York to promote his latest movie, “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.” He is looking at apartments with Citi Habitats broker and “The Young and the Restless” actor John Enos III.

Rourke is not the only star on the hunt for a Chelsea-area apartment. Beyoncé and Bethenny Frankel have both been shopping for real estate there recently. [NYP, 1st] — Claire Moses
