Happy birthday, Mark Wahlberg. You’ve reached another milestone, as you’ve existed for 45 years on this earth — 20 of them straight outta Dorchester and into Hollywood’s spotlight.
To honor this joyous day, let’s relive some of your glory days. Over the course of your career, you’ve given us Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, an HBO show based on your life, some pretty bizarre workout videos, Boogie Nights, and a talking Teddy bear.
In summary, you’ve given us plenty of content to work with. Here’s what we’ve resurrected.
