When it comes to choosing prisoner roles, call Sam Rockwell Mr. Recidivism. He’s ready to walk the green mile once again in Betty Anne Waters.

Rockwell is set to star in the legal drama, directed by Tony Goldywn, as will Hilary Swank and Minnie Driver.

According to THR, the film is “based on the true story of Waters (Swank), an unemployed single mother who saw her brother convicted for a murder-robbery in 1983 and sentenced to life in prison. Convinced of his innocence, she spent the next decade earning a law degree and working on her brother’s case.” Guess which part Rockwell plays. No seriously, in this case you may not know for sure. Hilary Swank is in it after all, and that is one actress that doesn’t mind pretending she’s packing some male heat between them legs. she definitely had more masculinity than me in Boys Don’t Cry.

Rockwell is padding his already impressive resume, landing the role of Justin Hammer in Iron Man 2, as well as currently appearing in the Oscar nominated Frost/Nixon. We also have heard rumors that he will be playing one of the Autobots in Transformers 2, but that was from a drunken midget in an arcade. Still, we consider him a credible source.

Are you interested in seeing Betty Ann Waters? Who would win in a fight, you or Hilary Swank?
