I’ve heard Ken Jeong‘s scenes in Transformers: Dark of the Moon — though brief in the context of a nearly 150-minute film — were rather interminable and worse, entirely unnecessary; there might be more on the way. According to THR, Chang’s reunited with Michael Bay on his currently-shooting Pain and Gain in the role of Johnny Wu, which I can only imagine being rooted in some mildly offensive “ethnic humor.” Try and argue against that prediction.
Let’s cover something that’s less of a nuisance. Following up our first looks at Mark Wahlberg and Rob Corddry on the Miami set, StarPulse (via LatinoReview) have picked up some shots of the former, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie. It’s not a lot to see — just some standing around in gym-like attire — but I still take it as an amazing reminder that Bay‘s actually shooting this thing.

Also starring Tony Shalhoub, Ed Harris, Rebel Wilson, and Bar Paly, Pain and Gain will hit in 2013.
Is there any potential in Jeong’s casting? How do Johnson and Mackie shape up here?
