Ken JeongIt looks like Michael Bay's upcoming dramatic debut, Pain and Gain, is going to require some comic relief, and Ken Jeong is his man.

The Community/Hangover star, who just last year appeared in Bay's Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, has joined Bay's indie (at least by his budgetary standards) based on the true story of a pair of Miami bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion-and-kidnapping scheme that goes horribly awry. Yeah, another one of those movies.

Pain and Gain already boasts a formidable cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Mark Wahlberg, Ed Harris and Tony Shalhoub. It's due for release next year.
