We just had images of a beefy Mark Wahlberg on the set of Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain', but now with Dwayne Johnson on set, he's got the more defined look for the black comedy real life film.
Next to Dwayne Johnson, anyone looks small, and Mark Wahlberg is no exception as the two were on set filming Michael Bay's 'Fargo on steroids' movie 'Pain and Gain'. Wahlberg had a clunkier beefy look in the other pics, but now he's primed up next to Johnson as expected. These two are very funny and have proven it time and again so it'll be interesting to see how they work under the ever mercurial Michael Bay.
‘Pain and Gain’ is described as ‘Pulp Fiction‘ meets ‘Fargo‘ and also stars Rob Corddry as a fellow bodybuilder. Unlike Bill Macy’s car salesman in ‘Fargo’, this one centers around bodybuilders who conspire to kidnap and extort a wealthy Miami businessman (Tony Shaloub), only to find the situation spinning out of their control. I doubt if there’ll be a wood chipper scene, but with Bay, he’ll come up with something comparable, plus I’m curious to see how he handles this kind of film genre, plus it’s a real life story.
The Michael Bay comedy also stars Ed Harris, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shaloub, Rebel Wilson, and Bar Paly. I think just having the Dwayne Johnson Mark Wahlberg duo will make many people happy and don't be shocked if the Wahlberg winds up popping up in one of Vin Diesel's Fast and Furious sequels.
