The NKOTB star chatted to KC today about their return, how the band was formed and why he understands Justin Bieber…
How about a first look at Mark Wahlberg’s character poster for “Transformers: Age of Extinction” to brighten your day? Yahoo Movies is pleased to present the official glossy poster introduction to Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager, a small-town single dad and struggling inventor.
If you’re a fan of the franchise like we are, this poster tells us basically everything we need to know in order to further fuel our excitement. The key ingredient is of course Wahlberg, looking all battle-worn and bruised, yet still standing strong and ready to smoke some Decepticons with a very dangerous, otherworldly weapon. It’s a perfect Michael Bay image, complete with the golden sunlight, idyllic wheat fields, and an unidentified flying robotic object floating/looming in the background.
A couple more things to note: Wahlberg’s biceps. Although he looks slightly slimmer than his pumped-up bodybuilder character in 2013′s “Pain and Gain,” this could be his second movie that could be titled “2 Guns.” And what are we to make of that tagline: “The Rules Have Changed”? What rules have changed and how so? We know we’re getting Dinobots, but what else? Human-robot-hybrid action?
With Wahlburgers becoming one of A&E’s most popular shows, some viewers might find themselves having trouble keeping up with the Wahlbergs. Kinda like Dorchester-meets-the-Kardashians, there really are just four on the show you need to care about: Mom and the three kids voluntarily in the spotlight.
They always say on the show that Paul is the brains of the Wahlburgers operation. He’s the most rational, which doesn’t always work in his favor. His opinions are often overshadowed by Mark and Donnie’s, but at the end of the day, Paul gets the final shot by simply saying that he knows what the hell he’s doing.
If Paul is the one with the logic, Mark is the one driving the family to get where they need to be. He’s got a lot of ideas on his plate, and likes to pursue every single one of them all at once. Everything is a competition to him and he’s fearless…because he’s Mark Wahlberg.
Mark: ”I was always determined to figure out a way to beat every single one of [my siblings].”
While Paul and Mark are the two go-getters, Donnie is very much the guy who sits in the backseat casting remarks that are heard only part of the time. He’s the peanut gallery. His opinions on the business are not often taken seriously, but boy, can he promote. The only instances when his advice is noted are when Mark and Paul are butting heads.
Paul, on Donnie: “I’m standing here, and these women are trying to claw past me to get Donnie, and Donnie’s like, ‘Hey, how ya doin’!’”
Alma, who lends her name to Paul’s restaurant Alma Nove, is often the voice of reason. But actually, she is the reason to watch the show. While Mark, Donnie, and Paul have a lot to say about each other, Alma actually has the real dirt (right, Baby Donnie?). And she’s the epitome of your classic Bostonian grandma, the kind with the best red sauce recipe and who probably used to smoke a pack a day. If you really need to choose a Wahlberg to love on this show, pick Alma.
Donnie: “The Wahlberg boys have this larger-than-life tough guy reputation, but in truth, we’re all a bunch of momma’s boys.” [SOURCE]
A&E has confirmed that it has picked up “Breaking Boston,” a Mark Wahlberg-produced reality series that follows working-class women from around the city. The network says, of the show and its stars, “Each one of them has already hit rock bottom via destructive relationships or bad choices, but they’re all leaning on each other and looking for a way out.” Wahlberg (right) says, in the network’s statement, “These are real women telling their original stories of trying to break out of what’s expected of them. The odds are difficult, but I believe they can make it.” The show premieres March 13 at 10 p.m. A&E also airs “Wahlburgers,” a more upbeat reality show about Mark, Paul, and Donnie Wahlberg’s burger joint in Hingham.
