Anthony Mackie Gets Help With His 'Phallic' Problem In Clip From 'Pain & Gain'

Anthony Mackie joins Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg in Michael Bay’s “low-budget” action-comedy, set in the world of bodybuilding, titled Pain And Gain.

The plot for the project, which is based on a Miami New Times article from 1999, follows a pair of Florida bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.

Johnson and Wahlberg play the 2 starring characters; Mackie plays a character named Adrian Doorbal, described as “a big-hearted bodybuilder who works out with Wahlberg’s character, Daniel Lugo. Doorbal has little to show for his hard work, leading him to get involved with Lugo’s scheme.

Check out the new clip below featuring Mackie and Rebel Wilson.

The film opens on April 26:
