Cabau Pain Gain
Michael Bay is all about T&A up and coming talent, isn't he? The helmer is continuing the trend, plucking little known Spanish-Dutch actress/model Yolanthe Cabau out of obscurity for his upcoming dark comedy-thriller "Pain And Gain."

Straight from the Michael Bay book of casting female leads (also known as "How To Please Your Male Leads"), Cabau will play the girlfriend of Mark Wahlberg's character, one of two Miami Beach bodybuilders along with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson who kidnapped, robbed, and left for dead a wealthy Florida businessman, played by Tony ShaloubEd Harris, Rob Corddry, Anthony Mackie, Bar Paly and Rebel Wilson also co-star in the film along with the recently added Ken Jeong and Tony Plana.

Currently lensing, the film should see a release sometime in 2013 in what will be Bay's first non-summer blockbuster flick. And judging from the various set pictures that have been leaked so far, this darkly-comic, early '90s-set tale led by brooding, testosterone-filled males seems to be a perfect fit for Bay. [Variety]
