Mark Wahlberg – Rappers Who Became Movie Stars

The once and future Marky Mark may never get to fully leave behind his days as a carved-stomach pop superstar, but after his turn as an obsessive boyfriend in ‘Fear,’ and perhaps more crucially, a naïve porn star in ‘Boogie Nights,’ no one would underestimate his very real talent again. He’s since played supporting roles (‘Three Kings’), been a romantic lead (‘The Truth About Charlie’), an action star (‘Planet of the Apes’), a Southie detective (‘The Departed’), and a blue-collar boxer (‘The Fighter’), and in each film he’s been more convincing and compelling than the last. His fearless immersion in the world of the character he plays in ‘Lone Survivor’ may be his latest demonstration of talent, but it’s far from his final one – and given his track record, there can only be more greatness to come.
