Opening this weekend 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.

Last week at the Miami press junket, I landed an exclusive interview with Tony Shalhoub.  We talked about what it was like to work with Michael Bay, his reaction to finding out the story was based on real events, the great work by all the actors, and more.  In addition, as a huge fan of Galaxy Quest, I couldn’t help but have him reminiscence about making that movie and how it’s stood the test of time.  Hit the jump to watch the interview and definitely check out Pain and Gain this weekend.  It’s absolutely worth seeing.

Tony Shalhoub:

  • Galaxy Quest talk. Also was the original cut rated R?
  • How all the performances were great
  • When he heard the story did he originally think it was all made up
  • What was it like working with Michael Bay
