Planet of the Mark
Who would have thought that a troublesome teen from the mean streets of Boston would single-handedly bring Hollywood to its knees, tackling the music, modeling and film industries? For the last fifteen years, Mark Wahlberg has been living in the limelight. Most stars can only dream of having a career as successful and diverse as Mark's. Never one to shy away from any role, Mark has rapped across the United States, modeled his unmentionables for Calvin Klein, and rubbed elbows with some of Hollywood's finest.
Both rapping and modeling were successful career moves, but Mark had his sites set on long-term goals. After several years of the pant-dropping and hip-hopping, Mark focused on breaking into the acting field. He certainly has proven to be a dynamic and dedicated actor playing roles ranging from a drug-addicted felon in The Basketball Diaries, to a criminal mastermind in The Italian Job. Coincidentally, they were both roles that Mark knew well. According to his biography, Mark grew up in a rough-and-tumble neighborhood doing what he had to in order to survive. All those years of hard-living created a man unwilling to give up, and focused on making it big.
So, please, join us in celebrating one of Hollywood's premiere actors. Read some reviews, find out about his childhood, and get some fun facts about his personal life. Besides, with two movies in pre-production, one currently being filmed and talks of a sequel to The Italian Job, it appears the boy from Beantown has no intention of slowing down.
