We’ve recently told you that Michael Bay recruited Tony Shalhoub and Bar Paly to star in his upcoming dark comedy, Pain and Gain.  Word has surfaced that the comedian Ken Jeong has joined the cast as well!

Jeong is best known for his roles in the ensemble cast of Community, as well as both of  The Hangover films.  Jeong’s character name in Pain and Gain will reportedly be Johnny Wu.

Below is a brief synopsis:

Small-scale compared to Bay’s Transformers movies ($200-plus budgets compared to this one’s $35 million), the project is based on the true story of body builders in Miami Beach who headed a kidnapping and extortion ring that went awry.

The movie is currently shooting in Miami. Are you excited Jeong has joined the cast?

Thanks to THR for the tip.
