Pain and Gain, Top Questions to ask yourself before becoming a bodybuilder, & The Rent Is Still Too Damn High
4/26/2013 3:00:00 PM
PAIN AND GAIN opens this weekend….this is the Mark Wahlberg and The Rock violent comedy (based on a true story) about three bodybuilders who went on a crime spree in Miami. The third guy is played by Anthony Mackie, the gentleman you may have seen in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Gangster Squad".
Wahlberg plays a personal trainer who convinces his friends to help him kidnap and torture one of his gym clients. Tony Shalhoub plays the first victim, and Ed Harris plays a private detective he hires after they get his money.
Ken Jeong from"The Hangover" is in it too, along with Rob Corddry from "The Daily Show", Rebel Wilson, and Emily Rutherford from "The New Adventures of Old Christine". It's directed by Michael Bay, the guy who did the "Transformers" movies.
If you go see PAIN AND GAIN, you may be inspired to become a bodybuilder yourself. Before you do, check out the Top Questions to Ask Yourself Before Becoming a Bodybuilder.
Am I prepared to rotate my entire torso just to turn my head?
Am I cool with wearing only light grey clothes that show off how much I sweat?
Shaving my body hair and then lathering myself in oil until I glisten isn't gay, right?
There's no such thing as owning too many Affliction t-shirts, right?
Am I ready to do something to my body that makes my junk look even smaller?
Will contest organizers still believe I'm steroid-free, when I fly into a violent rage when a comb gets caught in my back-hair?
Am I willing to go on WebMD every day and type in "backne remedies?"
Do I like books? Yes? Then move along.
As we told you yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow was named "People" magazine's Most Beautiful Woman…just in time for the premiere of "Iron Man 3". That's wild. It's almost as if they planned it or something!
Yes, "Iron Man 3" hits theaters next week, and you'll probably want to savor the moment . . . because it might be the last "Iron Man" movie. PALTROW says, quote, "I don't think there's going to be an 'Iron Man 4'. I think we're done with 'Iron Man'." At the very least, we'll see Iron Man in "Avengers 2".
And if the checks are big enough, there WILL be an "Iron Man 4". Of course, there are other casting options to consider . . . Gwyneth is 40 and Robert Downey Jr. is 48.
So if they decide they don't want to move forward with these characters, but Marvel does, they could always be REPLACED. What would YOU think about recasting those parts? Who could play those characters?
We leave you today with Jimmy McMillan of "Rent Is Too Damn High" fame. Remember him?
OF COURSE YOU DO.
