CBS News did an in depth interview with Wahlberg recently. This guy is very smart and has the best timing in H-Wood.

He took a “pop” rap career …turned it into acting and then has gone to produce some of the best shows on HBO. From Entrourage, Boardwalk Empire and In Treatment his production company is churning out hits and he’s behind them. That’s power in H-Wood.

Not a fan of Entourage ..but the other shows are great!

AND….he still acts. This “FIGHTER” role will make up for that awful
M. Night -Sham movie.

Congratulations to him.

Is Mark really that short? He looks like he is standing on his tip-toes just to put his hand on the solider’s shoulder.

Anyone know how tall Mark is?

Maybe the soldier is 7 feet tall.
