He's the quintessential action man who doesn't mind getting his hands dirty on set.

But yesterday on the set of Pain And Gain, Mark Wahlberg did stop short of doing one stunt – enlisting the help of a double instead.

Mark was seen dangling upside over a car on a wire, as well as throwing a load of punches for the camera – however it was his stunt double who was tasked with leaping off a building into a skip full of rubbish.

The pair were wearing identical tracksuit and vest top ensembles as the shot scenes in Miami.

Mark, 40, was also seen sharing a joke with director Michael Bay.

Earlier the actor was spotted scaling the wall of a gym as he bent backwards with the aid of a harness.

The fit star wore a pair of comfortable Adidas track pants and showed off his bulging biceps in a white vest.

In between takes Mark took some well deserved breaks, sitting in a director's chair and enjoying a bite to eat.

At one point he was even spotted inspecting his well-honed upper arms.

The friendly star also had a laugh and chat with crew members who have been hard at work on the sprawling Florida set.

While he is happily married, Mark was also treated to some eye-candy, with a bevy of bikini-clad beauties spotted on set.

Mark stars alongside World Wrestling Entertainment’s buff Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in his upcoming movie Pain and Gain.

But he has had no problem with walking around on the same set as the sportsman showing off a muscular form of his own.

Mark's body looked enviable to anyone
who laid eyes on him, especially when as he took a stroll by his trailer
a couple of days before.

He
took the opportunity to lap up some sun in the South Beach area as he
listened to music on headphones and despite his fetching get-up, all
eyes were on his huge chest.

The toned star showed off his fit in a
pair of salmon pink long shorts which reached below his knees as well
as sandals and white socks.

Mark pairs up with Johnson for the flick about a couple of bodybuilders in
Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme
that goes terribly wrong.

Last month the Contraband star irritated plenty of film fans after saying he knew who would win what at the Oscars before divulging insider information.

He claimed that he had a friend at PricewaterhouseCoopers with inside Knowledge about the awards.

'It's not a matter of who I want to win, it's who I know is going to win,' Mark told the Huffington Post UK. 'Because I've got a friend at PriceWaterhouse.'
