Rebel Wilson Takes Pain and Gain


Rebel Wilson has joined the cast of Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain, EW reports. She’ll star opposite Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris, Rob Corddry, Tony Shalhoub and Bar Paly in the dark comedy.

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.

Wilson, best known for her role as Kristen Wiig’s roommate in last year’s Bridesmaids, will star as Ramona Eldridge, one of the players in the true-to-life extortion scheme. She can also be seen on the big screen in the upcoming What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
