Now playing in theaters is director Michael Bay’s fantastic dark comedy Pain & Gain.  The film is based on a crazy true story and stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.  Pain and Gain also stars Anthony Mackie, Rebel Wilson,  Tony ShalhoubEd HarrisRob CorddryKen Jeong, and Bar Paly.  For more on the film, watch some clips or the red-band trailer.

At the Miami press junket, I landed an exclusive interview with Anthony Mackie and Rob Corddry.  We talked about what it was like to work with Michael Bay, their reaction to finding out the story was based on real events, the great work by all the actors, and more.  Hit the jump to watch the interview and definitely check out Pain and Gain.  It’s absolutely worth seeing.

Anthony Mackie and Rob Corddry:

  • How the true story it’s based on is crazy
  • The great performances and what was it like on set/preparing for the roles
