Real-Life 'Pain & Gain' Star Wants to Be Your Pen Pal

WriteAPrisoner.com WriteAPrisoner.com

If you didn't already know, Michael Bay's recent "Pain & Gain" crime thriller fest was based on a series of actual events which took place down there in Miami, Florida in the mid-'90s. So, those buffed-up baddies portrayed so well by Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Anthony Mackie were real-life thugs ... and their crimes actually happened, too.

Mackie's Adrian "Noel" Doorbal, for example, was convicted in '98 of a plethora of ills, not the least of which were two counts of murder. So, he's not exactly some teddy bear in the flesh. But if you happen to feel so inclined as to shoot the real death row-bound perp a letter, it's doable. Get More »

'Pain & Gain' Keeps Box Office Seat Warm For 'Iron Man 3'

Paramount Paramount

There was good news and bad news for "Pain & Gain" at the box office this weekend according to Film.com. The good news: Michael Bay's new comedy, which stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, took the top spot with an estimated $20 million debut. The bad news: It's going to get absolutely steamrolled by "Iron Man 3" next weekend, as Marvel's latest superhero epic earned over $195 million in its international opening.

Boom.

And the feeling that this weekend was just the calm before the storm carried over to the rest of the box office, which was down nearly 20% from last year. "Oblivion" managed to hold onto second place with an estimated $17.6 million, but the new romcom "The Big Wedding" was a big flop, drawing just $7.5 million in its opening weekend.

For a full rundown of this weekend's box office figures, head to Film.com.

The 9 Most Jacked Dudes in Hollywood

Pain & Gain Paramount

Most of us understand that as we age, it's important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Go for a jog (or a "yog" if you're Ron Burgundy) once in a while. Maybe opt for a salad sometimes instead of a few slices of pizza. If you work at a desk, perhaps you make sure you walk around your office for five minutes every hour. Feel that burn.

Then there are others who take that notion to extreme lengths, who hear "maintain a healthy and active lifestyle" and think "lift enough weights every day of my life to tear a horse in half with my bare hands and have a laughing fit in its blood." Get More »

What 8 Movie Stars Would Look Like as Bodybuilders

That's it, Hollywood. Feel the burn!

Many celebrities are known for their lean physiques; they're certainly in shape but not exactly what you would call "huge." Others are have made a career out of being super-skinny or pleasantly plump.

It's hard to picture beanpoles like Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Robert Pattinson, Angelina Jolie and Will Smith, scrawny fellas like Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Michael Cera and an endearingly overweight dude like Zach Galifianakis suddenly becoming bodybuilder-big, isn't it? So let us do the picturing for you. In the immortal words of Eric Cartman, "Beefcake!"
