Ted actor Mark Wahlberg, 41, was snapped holding hands with his two sons Michael, 6, and 4-year-old Brendan as the trio prepare to hit the basketball court in Brentwood, Calif. on Sunday (January 27).
According to Total Film magazine, it seems that Mark enjoyed trying to “outdo” fellow actor Russell Crowe on the set of their new thriller Broken City, in which they play bitter rivals.
”I had to give up a piece of my deal to get other people, just because the budget was fairly tight,” he says. “Russell and I got to go at each other and really try to outdo each other, not necessarily as actors, but as characters. It was fantastic.”
Mark claims Broken City is a throwback to the 70s thrillers he grew up watching.
”It’s like Serpico and all those movies I grew up watching,” he says. “It’s important to remind people that the Academy Awards have been filled with adult-themed movies that have been very successful. The King’s Speech, The Fighter… Even if you look at this year, with Lincoln and Argo….”
Mark is also father to daughters Ella, 9, and Grace, almost 3, with wife Rhea Durham.View Slideshow »»
