Tonya the Movie Star

LOS ANGELES -- Tainted figure skater Tonya Harding has agreed to appear as a feisty waitress in an independent filmmaker's movie about a woman running from the Mafia. Harding will play Gina, a waitress who accidentally receives a cache of money from the Mafia in the movie "Breakaway," written by Sean Dash and Eric Gardner. The filmmakers said they were surprised Harding accepted the role. Harding pleaded guilty earlier this year to hindering the prosecution in the Jan. 6 attack on fellow ice skater Nancy Kerrigan.
