Mickey Rourke has joined the cast of “Tiger” opposite Janel Parrish (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Prem Singh in the title role.

Principal photography has begun in Cincinnati on the drama from R3M Productions in association with Grodnik / Aloe Productions.

Executive producers are Rocco Pugliese, Daniel Hansen, Matte Hansen, Daniel Grillo and Robert Kwartler.
