Rob Corddry in Talks for Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain

ON

Variety reports that Rob Corddry (“Children’s Hostpital”) is joining Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Ed Harris in the Michael Bay-directed Pain and Gain.

Based on a true story, Pain and Gain follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida.

The trade says that “Corddry will play John Mese, a former competitive bodybuilder who now owns the gym where Wahlberg’s character works as a personal trainer. His past as an accountant and notary makes him a valuable though unwilling member of Wahlberg’s scheme.”

Bay is producing with Donald De Line and Ian Bryce. Captain America: The First Avengers screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely wrote the script.
