Ahead of the release of their very funny-looking new comedy, Daddy’s Home, Hollywood superstars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have announced that they’re coming to Dublin for the film’s Irish Premiere on Monday 7 December.

This isn’t just another press release or a bog-standard generic announcement though, because Will and Mark (yeah, we’re going for first-name terms here) have actually recorded this personal message for their Irish fans.

Daddy’s Home will be released in Irish cinemas on 26 December, just in time for you to hide the last of the Brussels sprouts dutifully eat the last of the Brussels sprouts, thank your Aunty Bina for the new socks, and head down to your local cinema for this very funny festive film. Looks like we’ve got ourselves a good old-fashioned Dad-off.


Ahead of its release next month, Paramount Pictures has debuted a new poster and two TV spots for Sean Anders and John Morris’ upcoming comedy Daddy’s Home starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Daddy’s Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Will Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Mark Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.

Daddy’s Home is set for release December 25th in the States and December 26th in the UK, with a cast that also includes Linda Cardellini and Thomas Haden Church.  []

Reality bites into burger realty, as celeb Mark Wahlberg and brothers are coming to Midtown.

Wahlburgers, the Wahlbergs’ fast-growing Massachusetts-based burger chain, is coming to 725 Eighth Ave. between West 45th and 46th streets near Times Square.

Founded by Mark, his actor brother Donnie and executive chef Paul, the restaurant, bar and store will take up all five levels of the property.

Last summer Wahlburgers opened its first New York City restaurant at 3015 Stillwell Ave. in Coney Island in a property owned by Thor Equities.

Joseph Sitt’s Thor also owns the 8,300 square-foot Theater District property where the 10-year deal was signed this week. Asking rents for ground floors in this Eighth Avenue area run $400 per square foot.

Through Sunday, 100 percent of the chain’s profits on its Soutien (French for support) Burger, which comes heaped with French onion jam, Boursin cheese and fresh watercress, will be donated to the French Red Cross.

The restaurant and family are also the subject of an Emmy-nominated reality show on A&E, and it’s likely that some of Donnie’s “Blue Blood” TV episodes will be filmed in the next location. Mark’s new flick, “Daddy’s Home,” opens on Christmas Day.


A fundraiser gala in support of the IDF raised more than $31 million on Friday night in a star-studded event in Los Angeles, California.

More than 1,200 supporters of the Israeli military attended the sold-out Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) charitable event held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The FIDF Western Region Gala ushered in various A-listers, including Mark Wahlberg, Liev Schreiber, Antonio Banderas, Jason Segel, Jason Alexander and Israeli-born KISS frontman Gene Simmons. A musical performance by the Beach Boys rocked the night’s event.

“For the past nine years I have watched this gala grow into the preeminent charity event it is today, and I am truly humbled by the funds raised yesterday, which are a testament to the importance of the FIDF organization and its mission. The overwhelming support from the Los Angeles community continues to amaze me,” said Israeli-American media mogul Haim Saban, who served as the gala’s chairman.

Friday’s program placed special recognition on the IDF’s Lone Soldiers, who have left their countries of origin to serve and have families that reside outside Israel.

Bereaved mothers of fallen IDF soldiers also addressed the crowd, as did a US veteran who gave a presentation on the benefits of Israeli medical technology used in America.  []

“She’s like the female Terminator,” says Arnie as he once again reminds us that he was in a great film in the 1980s.
The hype machine for UFC 193 is really ramping up.

On November 14, Ronda Rousey is expected to headline the most attended UFC event of all time when she takes on Holly Holm at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium.

Every single stop has been pulled out in the first Embedded episode. Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger all feature as Rousey’s remarkable rise to the top of her sport is celebrated.

“She has transcended her sport,” declares Wahlberg.

As for Holly Holm, Oscar de la Hoya is in her corner.

Wahlburgers, the burger specialist founded by brothers Mark, Donnie, and Paul Wahlberg and the subject of an A&E reality show, will open this winter at the Piazza at Schmidt’s in Northern Liberties.

No specific opening date has been announced.

But in the meantime, a Wahlburgers food truck will serve a limited, changing menu outside the site, in the former Darling’s Diner at the Rialto at the Piazza (1033 N. Second St.), beginning Saturday, Oct. 31.

Among the items will be the one-third-pound Our Burger, Alma’s Favorite Chicken, Portobello Mushroom Cap, Tater Tots, and Aqua Hydrate. (See menu.)

The truck’s hours haven’t been set just yet, but probably will be tied to weekends.

Local developer Artie Giordano, who plans multiple locations around here for the Massachusetts-based restaurant, is soliciting ideas for a signature “Invincible Burger,” inspired by Mark Wahlberg’s 2006 movie Invincible, about Eagles great Vince Papale. A contest, starting Nov. 1 on Facebook, will ask fans to help choose the toppings for the special sandwich.

Wahlburgers will serve made-to-order beef burgers with assorted toppings, beef hot dogs, salads, fries, tots, and specialty frappes. A full bar will serve draft and bottled beers (including the Wahlbrewski, a Harpoon Brewery custom unfiltered pale ale), wines by the glass, cocktails, and adult frappes.

Wahlburgers nominally will replace PYT, which closed in early October pending a 2016 opening near the Fillmore as the Piazza’s burger restaurant-slash-bar.


When it comes to trick-or-treating on Halloween, Mark Wahlberg was more of a trickster while growing up in Boston.

During a phone interview with the Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning, the actor admitted to stealing candy from kids on the ghoulish holiday, in addition to bragging about his Patriots’ latest win.

The Hollywood star said he used to wear an impromptu ninja mask made out of a T-shirt as he robbed the unsuspecting children.

“You go and you snatch everybody’s bags and hope you don’t get hit with too many eggs,” Wahlberg said.

The Dorchester native told Patrick that he was never arrested on Halloween, although he did cause quite a bit of mayhem on the holiday as a youth.

Wahlberg recalled buying—as well as stealing—eggs which he would then let rot before tossing them at people around the neighborhood.

“We’d either steal eggs or buy eggs two weeks in advance and leave them outside to rot so they could be as nasty as possible,” Wahlberg said.”You’d freeze a couple and you’d just go to war with rival neighborhood kids.”

Check out Wahlberg’s full interview in the clip below.  []

Dimension Films has dated “The Six Billion Dollar Man” starring Mark Wahlberg for Dec 22, 2017.

“Wild Tales” helmer Damián Szifron wrote the screenplay and is going to direct.

Production is set to start September 2016. Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Bob Weinstein are producing the film.

“The Six Million Dollar Man” is based on the classic television series from the 1970s and the novel “Cyborg” by Martin Caidin. The story follows military officer Steve Austin, who becomes part of a top secret government program after a horrific accident leaves him near death. With the help of cutting edge technology, Steve is brought back to life with extraordinary abilities, making him the world’s first truly bionic man.

“I’m thrilled to assemble ‘The Six Billion Dollar Man’ for the big screen with the likes of Bob Weinstein and Damián Szifron,” said Wahlberg. “We look forward to creating a Steve Austin for the 21st century.”

Overseeing production for TWC-Dimension are Matthew Signer, EVP of Production and Creative Affairs, and Keith Levine, SVP of Production and Development.

“Writing the screenplay was such a fantastic ride and embarking on this journey with Mark, Bob and Stephen to take this story to a whole new level is simply spectacular,” said Szifron. “Growing up, these kind of films left an indelible mark on me and now it feels so good to be making one.”

It’s Will Ferrell versus Mark Wahlberg again, but this time, they’re dueling dads.

In Daddy’s Home, Ferrell plays Brad, the milquetoast stepfather to a pair of cute kids whose cool biological father Dusty (Wahlberg) brings candy and rides a motorcycle and sports a set of abs. Naturally, Brad tries to one-up Dusty’s masculinity, resulting in shenanigans like a disastrous Lakers game, a motorcycle mishap, and a thinly veiled argument in front of the children over whose sword is, um, longer. As Dusty puts it, it’s “an old-fashioned dad-off.”

Daddy’s Home hits theaters Christmas Day. Watch the latest trailer below:

He’s known for playing action heroes and tough guys on the big screen but Mark Wahlberg isn’t shy about showing off his macho tendencies on the small screen either.

The actor, 44, happily accepted a challenge from Ellen DeGeneres to show what he’s made of during an appearance her daytime talk show to be broadcast Thursday.

He pulled off 22 pull-ups in 30 seconds, thanks to his bulging biceps, and by doing so he raised $20,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Dressed in black sweatpants and a shirt-sleeved t-shirt, the Lone Survivor star unveiled some impressive muscles as he took to the gym equipment at Ellen’s urging.

The TV host looked impressed as she watched him pull off the chin-ups in quick succession.

He’s the latest celebrity to undertake a challenge on the show as a way of raising donations for breast cancer charities.

Wahlberg also had a big confession to make to the comedienne who is hosting another of her popular Cat Weeks on her show.

The Boston native admitted that he is, in fact, allergic to cats.

The two also chatted about the secret to his happy six-year marriage to model wife Rhea Durham with whom he has four children.

He told Ellen that he likes to dress up as a handyman and fix things around the house as a way of keeping her interested.  []
