- PAIN AND GAIN
Director Michael Bay has picked up another runway vixen for his upcoming film Pain and Gain, this time in the form of Israeli supermodel Bar Paly.
Tony Shalhoub, from the TV series Monk, was also added to the film's growing ensemble cast.
According to Variety, Paly will play opposite Mark Wahlberg as Sabina Petrescu, an illegal immigrant who dreams of becoming the next Marilyn Monroe. The model-turned-actress will mark the second runway vet to land a leading role with Bay, who cast Victoria's Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
Shalhoub, meanwhile, has been cast as Marc Schiller, the target of Wahlberg's kidnapping scheme.
