From rapper to serious actor, there’s no question that Mark Wahlberg has talent. His best films range from comedy to straight action. With his long resume of excellent films, it was difficult to choose just 10. But, there are 10 of his films that stick out above the rest.
Before he was an actor, Wahlberg was Marky Mark. He was the lead rapper in the band Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. One of their biggest hits was “Good Vibrations,” which hit the Billboard Hot 100. It was even featured in Glee.
During his youth, Wahlberg had many run-ins with the law. He was caught throwing rocks at minorities and yelling racial slurs at them as well. His brothers and sister were often in trouble as well. After doing a 45-day sentence in jail for attempted murder, Marky Mark cleaned up his act, dropped the Marky and simply became Mark Wahlberg, the actor.
As an actor, Wahlberg is mostly known for his action movies. However, he has been in a few comedies along the way. Some of his most recent movies, Pain and Gain and Lone Survivor, have both action and a few comedic undertones.
Wahlberg’s upcoming films include Ted 2 and Transformers 4. Transformers is a reboot of the Shia LaBeouf films that concluded in 2011.
He won the Generation Award at the MTV Movie Awards on April 13, celebrating his success in acting. Here are 10 of Wahlberg’s top films that got him that award. Comment on what your favorite flick is when you finish reading the list.
