Blue Bloods star and two Victoria’s Secret Angels will headline two extravagant Super Bowl parties, organizers of the 14th Annual Leather & Laces extravaganza announced on Friday.

Donnie Wahlberg, an original member of New Kids on the Block and a star of the CBS police series Blue Bloods, will co-host the Leather & Laces party with his wife, actress Jenny McCarthy, and special guest NASCAR racer Kyle Busch on February 3 at Hughes Manor on Washington Avenue. The 24,000-square-foot pace is undergoing extensive renovations for the party, with opulent spaces such as “The Gold Champagne Room” and “The L&L Parisian Lounge.”

The next night, February 4, Victoria’s Secrets models Adriana Lima and Sara Sampaio will host the Saturday night edition of the party, with live performances by Cirque USA, DJ Michael Jerome, DJ Avi and DJ Automatic, at the same location. The models are among the select group known as “angels” because they don wings to walk the runway in lingerie at the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

The Leather & Laces party, which debuted during Super Bowl XXVIII in Houston in 2004, has become such a hot ticket that organizers now hold two parties on the Friday and Saturday nights before the big game. Past party hosts have included Jeremy Piven, Kim Kardashian, Alessandra Ambrosio, Nicole Scherzinger, Emily Ratjkowski, Jamie Chung, Bar Refaeli, and Kevin Dillon.

Tickets range from $375 to $20,000 for a celebrity cabana for the February 3 party; and from $450 to $25,000 for a celebrity cabana for the February 4 party. For more information, visit leatherandlaces.com.

“Patriots Day” star Mark Wahlberg discusses the New England Patriots playoff game this Saturday and if they return to the Super Bowl it may be a family affair. Wahlberg says, “My sons are excited and my wife now has thrown her hat in the ring and she demanded with Mr. Kraft [New England Patriots owner] in the room that she’d be able to go to the Super Bowl because I always say that it’s a boy only thing, because you can’t be late for the Super Bowl.” He adds, “Now that my sons play football, she’s obsessed with the game.”

Did Mark Wahlberg have Justin Bieber over for dinner with his family?

While making an appearance on The Ellen Show (airing January 6), the 45-year-old actor talked about his latest film Patriots Day, his daughter Ella Rae, and dropped a few hints about a certain Canadian superstar who spent an evening with his family.

“Musically she’s out of control because will be having dinner… I had a very successful friend who was there and she’s [Ella] a big fan. We invited him over for dinner,” Mark told Ellen without revealing a name.

“It’s a young man who’s been here before. He’s a very nice young man,” Mark added. “Canadian fellow. She liked him a lot when she was younger, turned on him completely and then came back with avengeance and was like ‘dad, that’s going to be my husband.’”

Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg has credited his faith in God for helping him turn his life around and allowing him to become a “better person”.

In a recent interview with People Magazine, the 45-year-old “Deepwater Horizon” star reflected on his troubled younger years growing up in Boston, Massachusetts in the 70’s and 80’s. As a teen, Wahlberg struggled with a cocaine addiction and regularly got into trouble with the law.

At just 16 years old, Wahlberg became a Christian after meeting a priest in jail while serving time in prison for robbing a pharmacy, assaulting one man, leaving another one blind in one eye and attacking a security guard. After he was imprisoned and charged with attempted murder, Wahlberg realized he needed to change, consequently turning to God.

“I think the fact that I’ve been able to turn my life around and really make my mom proud and become a better person through focusing on my faith, it always gives me great sense of pride to come home,” Wahlberg told People.

The actor, whose latest film, Patriot’s Day, tells the story of the Boston Marathon bombings, said he hopes his story inspires young people today.

Here’s something Oscar voters and regular folks probably don’t think they’ll want or need this year: a movie all but guaranteed to make them cry.

Yet it’s coming, anyway: “Patriots Day,” a film about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg, a Beantown son, as a police officer. The film nabbed the closing-night slot at the American Film Institute festival in November, landed on the National Board of Review’s Top 10 list, and opens on Dec. 21, prime time for awards.

For a picture that some feel is arriving too soon, or that risks being exploitative or worse, “Patriots Day” stands, on the one hand, to be unintentionally well timed. At a recent screening in Manhattan, as audience members gasped their way through tears, it became clear that the film got at something more elemental than tragedy: It captured the purity of the altruistic outpouring that came in the bombings’ wake. Sniffling away, the Bagger couldn’t help wondering, might this be a film that makes both blue hearts and red hearts crack open, and proves a unifier of sorts?

Then again, we are living in times when the very definition of “patriot” is deeply contested and fraught, when the word alone often causes liberal neck hair to stand on end.

“Patriots Day” is Mr. Berg and Mr. Wahlberg’s third film together, after this year’s “Deepwater Horizon,” about the deadly 2010 oil explosion and spill, and the 2013 “Lone Survivor,” about a disastrous war mission. All three neatly fit the definition of what Rolling Stone describes as the “neo-patriotic blockbuster”: movies whose heroes wear blue collars rather than cowboy hats or capes.

“These are films that seek to whitewash America,” Corey Atad wrote in Esquire, “boosting the virtue of pure patriotism, fashioning an uncomplicated reality for an audience tired of feeling like their country is being lost to liberal pussyfooting and terrorist threats.” Also in that category is Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated box-office hit “American Sniper,” which became such a partisan flash point two years ago — lefties deemed it pro-war propaganda; righties saw it as a patriotic masterpiece — that some liberals who consider themselves open and tolerant refused to see it outright.

EXCLUSIVE: In their third collaboration after Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon, director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg turn their ordinary man in extraordinary circumstances storytelling to Patriots Day. Few have made more memorable Boston-based films than Wahlberg, whose list includes The Perfect Storm, The Departed, The Fighter, Ted and its sequel. Here, they discuss their storytelling responsibility after pressing a community to relive a tragedy so they could turn it into a permanent document of courage and resilience. And, with yet another inherently Boston movie under his belt, and being the only homegrown actor to have shot scenes with the city’s two reigning sports deities — Tom Brady and David Ortiz — has Wahlberg eclipsed fellow Bostonians Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as the city’s favorite movie son?

DEADLINE: When Patriots Day was first proposed, you had to fear the feeling of, here comes Hollywood to exploit a tragedy. Explain the back and forth that led to both of you making this film.

PETER BERG: There were two things working in our favor. First was Mark, bringing me into the community and introducing me to so many of the people who were affected. The victims and their families, the survivors, the police. It made the actual practical telling of the story so important, the who did what, and where. In doing that, we talked a lot about lines of taste and decorum. We would work very hard to not cross that line. You can’t always articulate what that line is, but you know when you cross it. That was a big responsibility we had to work with. The other issue, and the reason we really wanted to make the film, was we didn’t want to see an action movie. This was not a Jason Bourne-type film. This had to be about something else.

DEADLINE: It works as a thriller, though, because of its procedural approach and ticking clock.

BERG: It is all those things but for me, it really could serve as an example of how we process this new reality, the world we live in. Where we wake up, turn on the news, and we’re not surprised to see there has been another terrorist act. I wanted to make a film that, as much as it had that procedural, ticking-clock thriller stuff, was a look at how a community survives something like this. The idea that love can still win, that good can beat evil. These were themes that were very important to me after Mark brought me into this community and we started doing the research.
