Michael Bay must have enjoyed working with ken Jeong on Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, as he’s now cast The Hangover actor in his dark comedy, Pain and Gain, which recently started shooting.
The comedy is based on a true story about a pair of bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping that goes terribly wrong. The actor will play the Johnny Wu, although THR has no character details. Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson are playing the body builders.
Ed Harris, Tony Shalhoub, Rebel Wilson, Rob Corddry and Anthony Mackie also star in what will be a very different film for Michael Bay. The director has finally started shooting after years of putting Pain & Gain back so he could make giant robot movies.
