Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson costar in the upcoming action flick “Pain & Gain.” Both actors are well-known for their ‘tough guy’ roles, but even these two need to seek out the help of stunt doubles every now and then.
“I’m not afraid to use a double,” Wahlberg admits to E!, adding that he used one in a scene which involved him getting hit by a car.
“We both have great stunt doubles, but with a movie like this, the authenticity was important, so we were down to do our own stunts and it’s not a stunt-heavy movie to begin with, it’s more character-driven,” Johnson added. “But when it required me to jump three, four stories off the building — bring in the stunt man.”
Johnson also talks about playing a drug-addicted character and the duo discusses filming in Miami, admitting they stayed away from the nightlife. Check out the rest of the interview here.
