Exclusive Interview: Stars Of Pain & Gain Choose Denzel Washington As Their Choice For Their Biopic

Posted by: cnikky


Pain and Gain starring Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie is the new comedy thriller that hits theaters this weekend.  The film is based on a true story that proves reality can be more un-believable than fiction!  Michael Bay (Transformers) directs the comedy about 3 body builders that go on a crime spree in search of their version of the “American Dream.”

Cherise Nicole (CNikky) and our associates EURweb caught up with the cast (minus Dwayne Johnson who was out having surgery), the director and their celebrity friends, Vivica A. Fox and Judge Alex.  The cast had the opportunity to portray real people, so we wanted to know….If you had a biopic about your life, who would you cast…to play you?

Anthony Mackie:

“Ooooh.  Denzel Washington.  Yes, Yes.  No, no, no, I would want Don Cheadle to play me.  I feel like he’s a well rounded interesting enough guy that get’s us simple family guys really well.”

Mark Wahlberg:

Oh I already discussed it with him last week and Denzel Washington’s gonna play me.”

Vivica A. Fox:

“I would have Meagan Good play me.  I love her, she’s got a lot of spunk.  She’s really pretty, she’s got a great figure and she looks like she could kick some butt.”

Tony Shalhoub:

“I think Clooney.  Why NOT!”
